What inspires you to be a creator?

First of all, it's just apart of who I am. I've loved making music and sounds since as long as I can remember. However, the two factors that put a battery on my back the most are other elite creatives and artists, and the idea of the artist I can become. From people like Kanye West, Bruce Lee, and Flying Lotus to people around me like IMAKEMADBEATS and Cameron Bethany, these high-level artists do what they do so well that it drives me to become just as great in my own lane. People like the ones I mentioned are known for pushing boundaries and I would like my name to be apart of that conversation. I've always had this vision of what that level of mastery of my craft looks like for me and I'm excited to reach that level and I look forward to the daily grind it takes to accomplish that. I hope that someone sees me one day accomplish those things and is inspired to become the best version of themselves as well.

What is your vision for the Memphis arts community?

I envision a community where most artists have to elevate themselves to a point where they attract people to Memphis internationally. I see a place where all artists are so much themselves that they inspire everyone else to do what they do just as good. I envision a place where healthy competition pushes the boundaries of what is expected from this place and I see the community constantly collaborating to make stellar works of art at an extremely high level. Overall, my vision for the Memphis arts community is that it is a community recognized nationally and internationally as a hotbed of diverse and extremely creative artists.
