Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The largest struggle is impostor syndrome.

I spent a large portion of my life around people who made me feel I was less than so they could use my talents without reciprocation. Kind of crazy cause these were friends and family but it was a lesson well learned.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m creative. I’m an artist, producer, and engineer. I play several instruments and I’m great at writing and arranging songs. Basically, I like to consider myself a Dr. Dre of the area.

Making artists stretch themselves and see their true potential instead of just falling into the norms. I’m most proud of an R&B album I produced called HIPS by Teia Elaine. Also this new ep, I have coming is called FANDEMIC.

What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
LA? What’s not to like? The whole culture is dope. Everything is moving. It’s really dope. I hate the traffic though.

If this question is about Raleigh. I love how accessible everything is. There’s always something to do and not a lot of FOMO (fear of missing out). What I dislike sometimes is the lack of resources for artists.

Things were more together in Atlanta. But we’re building something special here.
