I’ve been really blessed to work with a lot of great people. I, I wake up every morning and I think about it like, wow, like, is this real?
It was a long grind for me. You know, I’ve been doing this full-time for almost twenty years from this super underground.
From the super underground artists from like the 2000s, you know, your Little Brother and Boot Camp Clik and, and then eventually working with, you know, 50 Cent and G-Unit.
And then from there it just snowballed. At this point, I’ve been, you know, really blessed enough to work with a lot of people.
Two Grammys, ten Grammy nominations, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Drake, Travis Scott, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Khalid, Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Moana.
It’s been pretty crazy so it doesn’t feel real a lot of the time.
