How did you get into the Music Business?

I got into the music business at age young age of 6 or 7. My father was close to Run DMC and Jam Master Jay (R.I.P.) and would bring me alone to hang when they would tour close to the carolinas.

You were on some big tours over the past few years’ man. How were you able to get involved with that?

Man a friend of mine that own’s DCap Grfx,inc. a design company based out of Jacksonville Florida do alot of work for promoters around the country. So when he get jobs for things he feels could be beneficial to my career he would introduce me to the promoter(s) and let them know about my Alicia Key’s affiliation through Manager DJ Walton and prior shows, it’s pretty much a done deal after that...on top of that we be rocking the crowd harder than signed artist. So after a couple of that through Dcap’s hook ups now we get calls directly for paid shows.

I understand that you are managed by Alicia Keys Road manager?

Aww Yeah...Dj Walton a.k.a. Manager of the Year!

What’s the process been like trying to break out of the South? I know there is a lot of artist trying to get on.

First you gotta make a hot record, expose that record and then if it’s that “crack” they will come running and once they come running you supply them with more and more!
