Warner Robins, Georgia
How long have you been making music?
3 Years professionally but I first started writing and rapping at 12 years old (i never recorded anything back then)
What genre would you consider your music to be?
I am a Multi Genre Music Artist
What inspired you to pursue a career in music?
A week before I turned 8 years old I lost my mom to a car crash and also lost my great uncle and granddad to cancer that same year. Pain and trauma is what inspired me to peruse a music career. We didn’t grow up in the best living conditions and would move basically every year at the end of the lease to avoid evictions. I write about a lot of this and more in my music and it was therapeutic. I’m a very shy yet confident introvert so I got pushed out there to rap for the class and also at church and people loved it and some could even relate. It’s pretty cool what it’s turned into now, I’m able to heal myself and others as well as support myself, family and community financially.
What are your biggest musical influences?
I try to soak in everything around me as an influence, even if it isn’t music related. I can watch a movie and take that story, the emotions and vibe and create music based on that. As far as artists I listen to all artists and genres to learn from them, but artists like Kanye West, J. Cole & Lil Wayne definitely stick out. They influenced me as a child growing up and even now as an artist I watch them and have a new found respect for their work.
Are you signed to a label or are you an independent artist?
In 2017 I created my own Label called Team Crazy Kids LLC
What have been the biggest challenges in your music career?
I would say the fast pace transitions. There has been a lot of inconsistencies. I’ve met more artists and producers and have so many new doors being opened, But I still haven’t settled down to really focus on my art yet. Also there has been negative changes in life such as lost loved ones and even bad deals that I’ve been a part of that have set me back. I don’t want to use any of that as an excuse but I feel like once I can settle down in my creative space my music quantity and quality will increase as well as my fanbase the Dream Team.
How many songs or albums have you released to date?
I have 3 albums available and around 15 singles
Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
My latest album (and 3rd album) is titled “Larry The Legend”. My thought process while making this album was to leave a legacy, none of us will live forever so how do you want to be remembered, I asked myself. I hope this project is a reflection of all the hard work I’ve put in since 2017.
Any plans for new music or upcoming projects we should know about?
I have around 10 new Albums in the works. A rock album, gospel album, a few old school and new school hip hop albums, a few collaboration albums and more
