Depends on where we pulling up. Usually a small group of people
but sometimes bigger group, really does just depend.
What is one stage you want to sell-out?
First stage I want to sell out is The Forge in Joliet. It is like my stomping
grounds and it’s where I perform the most, selling it out would be a massive
step. Bigger scale, and Madison Square Garden.

I would love to perform in Florida, I love Florida
and I’m going to move there after I graduate.
New York too because Madison Square.

performing there again on June 12th and I think that one might be the biggest yet.

I could see myself on tour with artists I’m close with. Dream Ki, Okdeazy, Renz,
Lil Wavez, JMove, if you see them on my projects one day I’ll probably tour with
them. A bit larger scale I’ll say G Herbo or Lil’ Durk because Chicago and I’m
told a lot that my style is clearly influenced by them.
Who produces your music?
Wide range of producers who send me beats and also beats I find from YouTube and
buy leases for. PSA to all rappers, please don’t steal beats.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Rich, living in a mansion in Florida. Either because of music or because of crypto
and NFTs because those 2 things are currently all I care about and what I put
most of my time into.

driving, I get my license in July, so far I like any car that’s foreign. I don’t
like the way American cars drive.
What’s your favorite place to travel to?
I’ve only ever been to Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio & Florida, hopefully I get to travel
more this summer. So far definitely Florida.
Did COVID change your career for better or worse?
100% for the better. I was able to spend much more time working on my art and really
focusing in on everything I actually cared about. Being fully E learning, my grades
in school totally tanked but I made some of my best music & made a lot
more money than I’ve seen before then.
