Where are you from?
I am from the Jersey Shore! Toms River NJ, there is no place like it!!
Why did you first start making music?
When I was young, like 7, my dad brought me to Atlantic City. I saw a dj cutting it up on turntables for the first time, so that Christmas I got turntables. Fell in love with djing. When I was in high school I used to dj “Teen Nights” basically night clubs would have nights where the party was for age 13-18. While djing the teen nights I realized I was pretty much just promoting other peoples music, so I wanted to make
my own. Thats what start my production, probably around age 18.
Talk me through your creative process.
I try not to have a process.. with music its really just about creating a vibe in the studio, or in your headphones and going with that vibe. Most of the time when you try to over think it, nothing good comes from it. So my creative process is pretty much creating a solid vibe in the studio.
Who would you say inspired you the most?
Scott Storch has always my idol. I grew up listening to his production! It was impossible not to, the guy dominated the producer world! As I got older I really dug deep into his story and how much of a work horse he was! Hes so inspiring. I have actually gotten the chance to link up with him a few times! Amazingly humble dude too!
Whats the best advice you received?
Nothing is handed to you, it doesnt happen over night, trust the process. Those are some of the notable pieces of advice I have gotten. Its all true its every man for themselves out here and it takes a LOT OF WORK and A LOT OF TIME!
How would you describe the music that you create?
Production placement wise, rap, all styles of rap. As far as my personal projects, anything that would go crazy in the club while djing. Dancehall, pop, rap. My main focus for my personal projects is to make a fun record I can play out.
What would you have done differently if you knew what you knew now?
I wouldve focused harder, not paid women any attention, kept my circle real tight and locked in on my goals. When i was younger I was too worried about being lit and hooking up and clout chasing… I am locked in now I just wish I was sooner.
Whats the most important show you have played to date?
Its a three way tie. The first time playing at Harrahs Pool Bar in Atlantic City was awesome because I used to dream about playing there when I was a teenager. The first time on the radio was obviously special. And the first time in LA. They are all special in their own way
If you could change anything about the industry what would it be?
TALENT OVER CLOUT! Stop making talentless viral weirdos be famous rappers!!!!
What do you want your legacy to be? How do you want to be remembered?
I want to be remembered as the man that can do it all! I am a family man, I want to be the kickass dad to my sons but also the dj who’s the life of the party and makes hit records!
