Where did your musical journey begin?

My musical journey began very young. At three years old I remember my mother playing Elvis and Michael Jackson and I would dance and sing to the music. Around six years I would listen to rock primarily from my close friend,however one day I overheard someone playin F*ck the police by N.W.A. and from that day on was a hip hop head. I purchased Ice Cubes tape with my allowance. Throughout my early teens I kept up with every major and underground rap artist imaginable. Out of high school I purchased turn tables and tried my hand in DJ'ing. Wanting more I decided to start rapping myself and the rest is history.

How do you define success in the music industry?

An artist that reinvents themselves with the times and remains relevant.

Which music artists have influenced your musical style?

Early on mostly west coast N.W.A. Tupac etc, once I broke out of the "WestSide" bubble it was Notorious B.I.G., Method Man, and ScarFace.

What’s coming up for you over the next 12 months?

I just got off a mini tour hitting NYC, SD, Santa Ana and Los Angeles so in a bit of a regrouping phase. I do however have a performance September 17th in San Diego for BMike Rob's AfterParty. Also I am currently working on new music for my sophomore album and promoting my latest release "Official Biznace" available on all digital outlets.

Who is the inspiration behind your music?

My son Damien RIP, my beautiful daughter Lillian who just turned one,and my handsome son Dominic is ten. 

What do you hope to achieve through your music?

I hope to achieve longevity in my music career. Top BillBoard spots, world tours, pretty much the whole enchilada and most of all to bring those who were always down for me to the top with me. 

What’s your proudest career moment to date?

There are a number of things that come to mind opening for Rass Kass, Crooked I, ScarFace, performing at TeamBackPack MUNY competition... But if I were to choose one it would have to be when I was able to perform live at Venice Beach and my number one fan,my daughter, was in attendance. I was able to walk right up to her and rap and noone else in the world mattered in that moment.

Which music artists would you consider collaborating with?

The Weeknd, Ty Dolla Sign, Adele, Ice Cube, Tech N9ne, RA the Rugged Man, B-real of Cypress Hill.
