What makes you different from everyone else?
My understanding of who I am, everything I make is a reflection of myself and my surroundings. I feel as if a majority of artists if you will, don’t really make authentic music anymore. They just say all the shit that sounds cool. All my music is emotional, extremely real. Whether it’s good emotions or bad, it’s all real. Not many people nowadays speak about their true lives. They hide behind false personas to look cool. Fuck all that jazz man, if I’m not giving you myself then who am I giving you?
How long have you been rapping?
What would you change about the industry?
I’d change a lot of things, man. I’d mostly make it about the music again.. Unfortunately it’s all about money and always will be. Business is business though.
What is one weird quality about yourself?
Well, i’m a big sneaker guy. I’ve been in love with kicks since i was about 5.. my weird quality branches from that. I don’t like people touching my sneakers.. never have. I have to keep them in their original boxes, stacked up in order as well.
Do you have a album coming soon or any new productions?
Yeah, I have my debut project releasing this summer. Not too sure on the title yet, we’re going to bounce more ideas around and see what sticks right with the sound. I promise you, it’ll be something very special.
Why did you pick “95” as your song title?
Well, the actual song is 95 Freestyle by Big L and Jay-Z.. but, the reason I just kept it as 95 is because I was born in 95.
If you could be signed to one label what would it be ? or would you want to go solo?
What label would I sign to I like the idea of doing everything independently, but if I had to choose a label it would most definitely be Dreamville.
What is one thing you would change about the world if you gained 300 million dollars tomorrow?
If I had 300 million dollars, I’d donate half of it. Mostly into schools, hospitals, foundations, studios, etc. Then I would change the lives of the most important people in my life.
