Originally, I’m from upstate New York. The neighborhood I grew up in was very mixed. Every race, every religion. Now, I live in Atlanta.
I’ve been writing poetry ever since I can remember, and my older brother really got me into hip-hop because he listened to NWA and Public Enemy when I was growing up. My first commercial taste of it was when they started playing Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff on the radio. Hip-hop was just around me, so I absorbed it. When I was a teenager, me and my girls started rhyming about the chicks in our town as a joke, and I just never stopped.
I’d love to work with Eve, and Missy’s style is crazy. I love her cuz she’s so damn innovative, not scared of anything. She’s on that next level shit. I’d also like to do something with a singer, like Nelly Furtado or Pink.
