How did you first start making music?

I first started making music when I was playing around on Garageband on my iPhone and used Apple AirPods to make a song. It was called Myself which I put out in my first year of highschool, I did get a lot of criticism and people appreciated my art. From that moment, I loved what people told me, it made me happy. I just knew that I had to start working on my craft and that I should create more songs.

What’s been happening recently?

Just released my new song Suits On featuring Stay Swaying on all platforms. Been collaborating with artists abroad from the UK and local Toronto artists.

What influenced the sound and songwriting of Suits On?

It was strongly influenced by a slow guitar and low 808’s produced by ProdXyv and BENHEET It has an up-beat yet mellow vibe to it, making it a perfect christmas song for karaoke challenges. Putting together experiences that were happening at the moment, Sway and I had put it all together in a song. With the hard beat switches, and classic kick drum the beat is finished as a certified RNB winter track.

How has Toronto affected your music?

The engagement from Toronto is absurdly high. Toronto pages haven’t been showing me love. Toronto music mainly revolved around the violence and that is something that I stay out of entirely. Taking my own route, I know Toronto gon’ notice me soon over time.

What is your best memory from the video shoot?
Just the process of making the skits and shooting the shots with my suit was the best memory. The creativity that the videographer, Sway and I had when shooting different scenes during the video, for example the mirror scene as it switched from Yasmeen, the model to Sway.

Where, when and who did you film with?
We shot this music video around my birthday in June, and filmed it with ShotAt11 in a photo studio that was a partially greenhouse.

Who are your favourite artists?
My favourite artists are The Weeknd, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, J.I the Prince of N.Y and RealestK.

Are you happy with conversations being had about your music?

I came to the conclusion that you actually have no influence over the setting or manner in which a discussion about your music occurs. Everyone has their own opinions, which they frequently voice online. I am aware of my supporters. I do read and keep up with everything that is happening. I value the criticism, and I take to heart everything that spurs my artistic development.

Who are you listening to at the moment?
Askae is an artist I truly love listening to at the moment.

What do you like to do away from music?
I play basketball, I feel it gets a lot off my mind and I just love the game. Recently, I started to meditate and read spiritual and self development books.

What’s planned for 2023?
I got a lot of music lined up for the year, just trying to shoot the music videos on my own time to plan out my marketing strategies. Just trying to grow as an artist and do better and more progress than the work I put in 2022.
