What’s the name of your new EP and what inspired it?
I started seriously rapping at 22, I played around with it a bit starting around 17 years young. In my late teens I started hanging out at a studio on International Boulevard Lets Rock Studios in Oakland learning and Smokin up game; eventually that studio was sold & I moved on. In 2011 I record a few records at Laughing Tiger studios in Marin County & distributed a few recording around Oakland & San Francisco. Those records where produced by The Legion out of San Rafael California.
In 2015 I dropped my first EP titled P.U.S.H. a few records off that EP had a little traction around northern california when Thizzler.com picked it up & once Worldstar.com posted the visuals things started to move for me state wide. That EP had production from a few independent production companies; The Reinforcements Production Company out of South Los Angeles. About that same time i started experimenting with my ability at beat making and learning that part of the game.
In 2020 through 2021 during the pandemic; I jumped back in the lab & produce about 100 records or so; then wrote & recorded to most of them. In 2022 we released the Buckshots EP. Buckshots was a collection of 5 records that was inspired by mountain life, self-reflection & the social climate in the urban areas in california over the course of the pandemic.
This upcoming year in 2023 we’re dropping the Trigger Talk project. My Inspiration for Trigger-Talk is experiences & perspective; plus the love of the art form & the culture partly, however, the cultural construct of the west-coast today is a driving force also behind the project also. We all have triggers in life socially & personally it’s part of being human, so that’s what inspired me to title the project Trigger-Talk; with that said, this project will touch on some triggers I’ve dealt with beginning with toxicity seeded from childhood & how I’ve over came or managed these trigger toxic traits. We’re also expressing sonically triggers that possible relate to others in the world & it’s societies
