What are some of your musical influences?
My musical influences are R. Kelly, Jay-Z, Lauryn Hill, and Michael Jackson.
When laying down the track in the studio, how do you like your sessions?
I like the sessions full of energy and creative chemistry (with plenty of fruit snacks and pistachios), an environment that will allow me to translate the sound that is coming through me purely.
