“What made you decide to become a rapper?
Hip-hop has always been a constant voice in my life, from helping me through tough times to giving me the power to express my emotions and beliefs. It’s ingrained in my life, and it doesn’t just show up when I’m on the stage or in the booth. Even in my day job as a nonprofit leader, my swagger and perspective comes from hip-hop in many ways. Several years ago, I came the point where I realized that, if I put in the work, I could become truly great as an MC. That’s where I grasped control of my voice and the sound, and now we’re on an amazing journey.”
