  • Music is therapy. Music moves people. It connects people in ways that no other medium can. It pulls heart strings. It acts as medicine.
  • 'Vote Love' means vote equality. It means vote change. It means vote what's right for humanity.
  • I'm as honest as I can be.
  • Its easy to view politicians as corrupt and voting essentially an act of picking the lesser of two evils. I understand that perspective and feel it's valid.
  • I put myself in the place of the listener when editing my writing. The last thing that I want to do is be preached at and told who to be or what to think when listening to an artist. However, I do want to be inspired. There's a fine line.
  • I'm someone that examines culture and tries to break down why things are the way that they are whether its hip-hop music, sex, race, or consumerism. I try to examine it and scrutinize it to the point where I can write a song.
  • You need to get outside of your comfort zone to write songs that are interesting, songs that are compelling, songs that are different from what other people are writing.
  • I definitely use 'smiling while rapping' as a tool in the booth. I want to have fun while recording.
  • I want to make music that I like; not something that I have to make because I think it's going to sell.
