2. What inspired you to become a serious indie artist?
When I was 4 years old I started hip hop dancing and after seeing Michael Jackson do the moon walk that’s all I wanted to do, being around music my hole life I started to want to make the music and perfume the music not just dance to it. It wasn’t until one my friends Jacob Rohde who is my music producer moved in with me we and started getting serious. Set up our home studio. After hearing the first tracks we made together I realized this could actually be a possibility and ever since then I haven’t stop striving to be the best.
3. What is the HipHop scene like in your country?
The HipHop scene in Australia is not big at all, I mean a lot of people listen to it But there’s not many people making the sound im looking for, a lot of it is Aussie hip hop witch is different to what im trying to achieve.
