#Bottomofthe9th my new mixtape. it’s a massive boost to what i already have going on so yeah
Rest is one of your newest songs out but what’s the story behind it and did you come to write it?
Yeah i wrote the song but my buddy did most of the video work i like letting people do what they do simply because you may do a better job than i ever would.
Going back to your EP you have a lot of collabs on there how did they come about?
Friends in the game, people i just met on twitter, i guess it all depends on what the vibe is for the tape
Who would be your idle person to do a song with and why?
Travis Scott i feel i can relate to him the most and we make similar music
How do you distribute your songs besides word of mouth and fans of course?
I flood social media: Twitter Facebook, Instagram website and email list
Being from Brooklyn the music scene over there must be busy how do you compare to the others and how do you rise above the rest to get noticed?
I stay consistent, I don’t stop working, get tunnel vision then comes song writing I think I’m pretty good at that so that plus being consistent equals a knife to cut through the clutter

Yeah this new tape will have a lot of those maybe 2-3
