Tell us about your background and getting to where you are today!
Growing up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn was truly a blessing. Living and being raised in a Hispanic household with parents who were very diverse in the music world truly opened my eyes to music differently. It made me appreciate different types of music as I got older.
When did you start making music?
I started doing music about 3-4 years ago as a hobby but didn’t take it seriously until about 2 years ago.
How did you get into music?
The way I got into music is actually very interesting. I heard a song on the radio one day that I personally didn’t like much. I remember telling myself “I can’t believe this is on the radio”. Coming from Brooklyn, I grew up hearing some amazing music from the artists I consider great and at the time I was like “I can do this”, “I want to be like the greats” and bless the radio with some amazing music. So I just consistently worked until I found my sound and I won’t stop until I share my vision with the world and keep getting better.
Who inspires you the most musically?
Drake, Jay-z, Gashi, Nas… I can keep going.
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
Depending on the track, I want people to feel what I’m portraying. My feelings and emotions. All of my tracks I always base off an experience. I want people to be inspired and show that if you work hard you can do it too. My music is very “work hard, play hard” and I will always believe hard work beats talent.
Tell us about any new projects you have coming out!
I have a new project coming out soon called “REER”. It’s actually the word VEER spelled in Jedi. The definition of the word veer is a sudden change in direction. I feel like this project is a more serious approach to my music and you can hear the evolution from my last project and that I’m here to stay, embracing my Brooklyn sound and showing that sudden change. I also love Star Wars so I threw that little language change so people can ask me what that means and build the curiosity.
