Name one artist you dream of working with (dead or alive) ?

I’ve started to take my music journey seriously once i moved to Louisville, Kentucky! I really developed as an Artist from the ground up living here in the city! i started off homeless luckily with a job set up when i arrived. Really having to figure everything out from scratch contributed to the type of my man I’ve become to this day. Really starting was a struggle but i knew exactly what i wanted to do. The simple fact that started taking it a step time and meeting goals continuously gave me motivation to keep going!

What is your writing process when creating music?
My Writing process consist of listening to the beat literally over & over again. i usually start off writing the hook/Chorus, thats what come faster on the pad, then i break it down with the verse. i might section the first off depending on if i have different parts of the first verse. that also depends on how i go in with my flows! I don”t write unless the beat touches my soul. i have to really feel it inside of me, its like it’ll give me chills knowing that i could be super creative on a beat thats really hitting my ears. i am able to write on my phone & or on notepad but with my phone i color coordinate my flows and words.
