Who are your inspirations in life/music?
-Music-wise some of my biggest inspirations include Bizzy Bone, The Doors, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, and The Beatles. 2pac has always been of my biggest inspirations, as well. Not mostly for his music, but that he used his life as a platform to talk about his beliefs on the world, and that he stood up and stood for those beliefs and looked to make changes in the world to make a difference.
Are you currently working on anything?
-I am currently working on an EP that should complete a trilogy of tapes that I’ve been working on for the last two years. It’s exciting to see an artistic vision come to life the way it has, but the final tape is still only a couple songs in right now.
What’s the greatest thing about Central Florida?
-The greatest thing about Central Florida, by far, is the diversity. Growing up, all my friend groups would have every different kind of race you could imagine. There’s a large Arab and hispanic population in both Tampa and Orlando, plus, because of the temple in Lakeland, a rather large Indian population, as well. One of the bigger musical conglomerates in Central Florida, Colours of the Culture, represents this diversity extremely well, and showcases with their various styles the many influences that people growing up in Central Florida have been a part of. I don’t think there are many places as diverse as this Central Florida region in America.
What makes Central Florida home?
-Central Florida is home, and will always be home, because this is where I’m from. I’m not the type to be perpetually nostalgic, but where I’m from is where I’m from and I will always represent myself with that in mind. I love this place.
Anything you love about Orlando?
Oh man, so much. I love the diversity and the aesthetic. It seems like you really can’t pinpoint Orlando, or box it into one area because it’s so sprawled out and massive. You can be near Oviedo and UCF, and get a completely different vibe from the city than you would being in the downtown area. And there’s just so much going on if you take the time to look. Whenever I first came here I was almost overwhelmed at what to make of everything, but over time you really find what you need to and where you want to be. The people here are amazing too. Growing up in a small town boxes you in as to what kind of personalities you’ll see. Coming here was one of the greatest things that’s happened in my life, by far.
Any people in the Central florida art/music scene you want to shout out?
