How Do You Describe Your Sound? It’s real! The storytelling aspect is what sets it apart, the emotion I’m sharing, the struggle and the pleasure too, it’s all me putting it out there as a component of my artistry.
If you were the offspring of any entertainer (dead or alive) who would be your parents? I wouldn’t want anyone in the entertainment dead or alive to be my parent.. I’m fine with the struggle I’ve been through in the sense of support. As far as someone who has inspired me, someone I look up to… fellow Brooklynite Lil’ Kim.
What do you want fans to walk away with when they hear your music? A message.. I want fans to feel my pain and understand my growth!
What’s next? I’m open to seeing where touring takes me, and of course have my sights set on Billboard and making some big money too.
