Discovering your own musical style is a unique part of every artist’s journey. What sets your music apart? What is unique, or at least uncommon?

The message in my music. Awareness, also the fact that I talk about mental health, which is a serious and massive issue in our communities.

You have always been known for providing hope and optimism through your tracks. What is the subject matter of your latest release “The Year of Awareness”

Mental health, we should be able to feel more open and freer to talk about mental health conditions/illnesses/crisis. But we tend to avoid because of shame, judgement, fear, stigmas, and myth.

How do you go about writing a song? Do you have a melody in your head and then write the other music for it?

Yes and No, sometimes the melody comes first then the idea, sometimes I just think of a song and then try to create it. But for the most part being a producer, I am a melody type of guy. If is not catchy I will not proceed with it.

What draws you to your preferred genre?

To be honest, I do not really have a preferred genre. I am open to all genres. As a producer I believe that it is important to be versatile.

How do you deal with writer’s block?

When this happens, I usually give it some time. Or I will call in reinforcements to help me finish the song. Example other songwriters to the table.

What would your autobiography be called?

I am not sure I understand your question, but I’m the awareness guy.

Who are your top five favorite artists of all time? Why those artists?

That’s a sticky one. I will start with Richie Rich, an artist from Oakland. I believe he’s associated with E40, Richie Rich, Tupac, Scarface (ghetto boys), Brotha Lynch hung. Trae the Truth

To me these artists made songs that I could strongly relate to. Obviously, I have so many.

Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Big Punisher, KRS one, Zro, Tech N9ne, Black Thought, Guru (Gangstarr), I have many others.

For our final question, is there anything else you would like to add?

Anybody out there, struggling with their mental health. Please seek professional help, talk to someone. Just because you are down today, It doesn’t mean you will always stay there.

Talk or reach out to someone you feel comfortable with, study yourself. And always seek for betterment, your mental health matters and is probably the most important part of a human being. Because you see, in order to command your body to move, you first have to command your brain.

Awareness Is Power.
