S: Where did you grow up?
M: I was born in Silver Spring Maryland but grew up and lived most of my life in Montgomery Village Maryland..
.up until I was a junior in high school THEN I moved to Franklin New Hampshire to my grandparents house. I lived there from the junior year of high school up till I was like 19 or dropped out of college freshman year.
S: Where are you currently living?
M:I currently reside in Portland Oregon. After I dropped out of college freshman year I decided to go on a cross the u.s little adventure. I went thru places like Denver and LA. But I had some family in Portland and this was the one place that really felt right so I stayed in Portland Oregon.
S:What inspired you to make music?
M:My dad used to make music when I was young. So I remember being just a youngin seeing my dad with all his friends..smoking and drinking making music. It really caught my attention so I feel like as the years went by I sort of gravitated towards making music like he did. It was always rap. I grew up listening or at least always hearing some raw hip hop.
S:Could you compare yourself to another artist?
M:I try to stray myself away from comparing myself to any artist. We all obviously have influences and artist that we listen to. But as far as comparing myself to any..I try not to do that . I try not too even listen to much hip hop at all really.
S:What is the next project you’re working on?
M:I got an album coming out mid of next year that I won't release the title for because its still being worked on. But, I currently have an album done, entitled "The Babushka Lady LP." and its all produced by 1 dude (Lo Fiction) and.. its set to drop around Valentine's day 2018. So a lot of upcoming visuals and singles that are being released will be off that project.
S:Besides music, what’s another passion you have?
M:Honestly I. Just love writing . I think that's why I enjoy rap music so much. I'm always fuckin writing . Since this is a sports website, who’s your number one team? Being from Maryland you know I'm a skins fan !
