Questions With The Artist
10AT10: What was the main inspiration in making this song? But also, what was the creation process like?
The main inspiration behind “The Life” is not a flex song but more of a song about how I’m pretty much at the stage in my career where I truly believe that if I keep pushing and dropping content that my time will come!
10AT10: How would you say this track reflects yourself? Was there anything you wanted to truly portray in this song?
This track reflects me because I’m an artist that likes to have fun [with] my albums. I like to take on more serious topics and stuff that’s been happening in my life but this song is truly where I’m feeling right now and where my head is at in my career.
10AT10: If you could describe your sound to someone that’s never heard you, what would you say?
I don’t really have a specific sound. I love to rap but love melodies at the same time! I grew up listening to a lot of rock or punk music before I fell in love with hip-hop. Every Sunday my mom was blasting Kirk Franklin so I grew to appreciate all music and genres.
