6. Who was playing on your headphones when you were growing up?
When I was Young as far as I could remember Bob Marley was my favorite artist. When the genre changed, Biggie Smalls , born on the same day as me 5/21 , was a major motivation to me , but so was his rival . I really felt the life of both of those two. Jay z, also from Brooklyn was automatically next in line...
Then when I moved to Columbia South Carolina at the age of 13 it was, young jeezy and Gucci . And Wayne. When I moved back to Brooklyn at 17 , Drake started doing too much 🤦🏾♂️

10. Do you agree with the Pigeon?
I agree with pigeon today but ima Gemini but I might not tomorrow . 🤦🏾♂️
"Power Up" reigns over the night with a skeletal minimalist beat and autotune used as an artistic tool to add much-needed melodic layers, and this type of production is extremely efficient as it doesn't allow for any bullshit! With a braggadocios and egocentric attitude, Cris Cain reveals himself to be a real boss. I just want to blow one, and smoke one while listening to Cain's abused epic drills that turn me into a womanizing gangsta king who has trampled all his enemies underfoot and who has an iron throne and a court of bitches to spin for years and years...
