Your song “Do It” is this a single off an upcoming Ep or album?
Yes I’m dropping a full length album I’m currently down to two names! I’ll get back to you on the name! It’s lit just know that!
Would you consider yourself strictly an R&B artist or partially a rapper as well?
no I’m ambidextrous, I sing, rap, produce, write, act, I’m a director! You name it I’ve done it and I will keep doing it!
How do you feel about the current state of R&B in 2018?
I love where R&B is, it’s underestimated, it’s a lot of auto tune out here, it’s real singers out here I’m not putting myself in that category but I chose not to use auto tune for a reason! This is bigger than me or music! Talent can’t be categorized and I’m living proof of that!
How are you planning to contribute to revive the state of R&B and making it popular as it use to be?
it maybe a wrap for R&B as a form of mainstream music as far as comebacks but I feel we all can keep it alive by paying attention & keep it alive by listening and creating! I love R&B music! I feel R&B has merged with hip hop at this point it’s so many tunes that are more hip hop than R&B but it has evolved into what we hear today!
