What got You into Hip Hop?
.
The older kids that we use to play soccer against in my court, they were the ones who came with speakers to the field and were playing hip hop music. I never really took note of it but it was there and unconsciously I started listening to it. Once it became a habit, my friends and I started competing with one another about who watched the latest hip hop music video first – I remember Soulja boy’sCrank Dat” being the hit at that time.
.
.
If You were not into hip hop, what would you be?
.
I would be in education- I always wanted to be a scientist though but as years went by the desire changed and becoming a teacher started growing on me

.
What is the good and the worst about Hip hop according to Your Experiences?
.
The good is that Hip Hop is the platform given to influence, and a whole generation can be influenced. The worst is giving that platform the wrong people/person

What is the Motive behind your Writings?
.
I write to express myself and in doing that, I try to inspire the next person to do the same. Also theres times where I just wanna show off lyrical skillset – you know, flex a little bit lol but as a whole, trying to make the most out of the lessons of life to be honest.

How was the experience that you travelled to USA and collaborate with Mike Will Made it?
.
Aahh man, the flight to USA was long. First to Joburg, then Germany and then USA.
I really enjoyed it though, I mean to enter a world that you’ve only seen on TV – A lifestyle that is admired by the people where I come from, was dope. I was scared though but I kinda got use to it once I was flying back.
Myself and Mike Will Made It never linked up, he was busy with the tracklist for Creed
2. The beat was whack though I was kinda disappointed, the best thing about that beat was probably the tag. However, I worked w someone else, we spent like two nights in the studio to complete to the track.

How did you get to be mentored by K.O and Kwesta?
.
K.O and Kwesta were judges on a competition I was in ( MTN Megastar), so that’s how I got to be mentored by them. With K.O he came down to Cape Town like a few times and I linked with on two of those occasions.
