It started as a hobby that he did for fun but when his friends actually started to like his songs he had a talent and couldn't waste it.
Who is ( artist name), how do you want to be perceived?
I want to be perceived as a public figure that’s here to change the world. The modern day John Lennon and inspire others.
Is (artist name) just a play on words, or are you looking to hold a certain image of comradely?
The idea behind the name itchyglock comes from my dad, It represents a political stand against the government and gun control. If the government takes our guns they will control our lives even more!
Love the beat, what made you pick it?
I love the beat because of the mood it sets off, it is different than what other rappers now rap on. It was produced by Dran Fresh Beats.

The process of “infLuenSeD” pretty much went that I found the beat, wrote to it while I faced a blunt. After practicing it for about a week I recorded it in my room and mix and mastered it.

I knew I wanted to be famous since a young age but never knew what for, I always assumed it would just happen but as I got older I realized I need to offer something for fame, and I started to rap in 2015.
Do you remember the first song you made?
My first song was recorded on a webcam mic and I recorded on an old desktop computer with JayT. It’s still one of my favorite songs i have made until this day. It was called “Goon Collision”.
What makes you different?
Things that make me different is my vibe, the mood I set off on a song or even when I'm just in the same room as you. My energy always makes everything lit no matter what, that’s just who I am!
