"Music to me is everything I breath I can hear it all around me I could beatbox to rain tapping on the window, or a blinker of a car, to dump truck backing up. I'm constantly thinking of a song or rapping a song I constantly play music in the crib, or making beats. I do this for the Love of the art, plus its the only thing I'm really good at."
