How did you get started in the game?
I got started in the game when I was twelve years old. One day I was with my friend and I started freestyling out of the blue. It sounded cool and was funny to us so I just kept doing it. When I was thirteen I started really getting serious about it and rapping with different people I knew that flowed. I started making tapes everyday after school.

What is your goal as an artist?
My goal as an artist is to be respected as a lyricist and to put out a string of successful albums.

2Pac

What is your favorite Rap Group?
Tha Dogg Pound

What's your favorite old school artist?
E-40

If you could change anything about Hip-Hop what would it be? And why?
Although there is a lot of music I am feeling that is out now if I could change anything about Hip-Hop it would be to make it have a harder edge. I would bring it back to when mainstream artists didn't have to sound soft or have RnB singers on their songs to make hits. I think Hip-Hop is much better when it is pure and not watered down.

What is on your mind as you're battling someone?
When I am battling someone I'm mostly concentrating on my opponent and the response of the crowd.

What does Hip-Hop mean to you?
Hip-Hop to me is everything. It's your lifestyle, where you grow up, it's how you think, how you talk, dress, act, and of course the music you listen to. To me Hip-Hop is a culture and something you live everyday.

What's most important to you as an artist?
a. Music
b. Money
c. Fame

As an artist the most important thing to me is music.
