When did you start your music Career?
I Began writing poems at a very young age after reading Shel Silverstein books.My life began with The Giving Tree. I presented poems to my school in Boise, Idaho, and was published on the spot in a book called Happy Poems. My Father moved us to Barstow, California. Where my life began to be gangs, drugs, and probation. At the age of 15 I took my poems with me to a rehab facility, Our Family foundation. Napa Valley, California. It was there that I was taught music theory and how to play the piano. I learned classical music and was inspired by the rap scene. Being the rebel that I was, I set forth to merge genres and rock the world with poetry.

I will be one of the greatest writers to ever live. I hope to break many world records with hard work, and dedication.

Do you attend sessions? What makes a good session?
Once or twice a week I unload my ideas to the studio. Cooperation makes a good session.
What inspires you to write music?
All my life my emotions were not accepted. Even if I liked my songs, and other people liked them, I didn't want my generations to come, to see me as Csme. But I realized that I can be who I want to be now, and change who I want to be later. So I didn’t try to do anything but be myself. Music became the best way to express the real me.
What do you like most/least?
I keep the Earth. I remove people's trash and try to make the World a better place.
I value all things that are of the Earth.
