INFLUENCES

When I really think about it, what has the most influential impact on me is life itself. The soon-to-be-released album "Updated" is a reflection of where I am in my life. I’m currently trying to gain sight of a promotional system for my music career, refusing to settle in my personal life, and trying to obtain elite levels of bodybuilding and nutrition. These are the challenges I'm facing, and that’s what my music is about.

But you probably wanted to know what my musical influences are. So here goes...

MUSICAL INFLUENCES

Lil Wayne - Carter 3 III, I Am Not A Human Being, Carter IV, I Am Not a Human Being II

I doubt the idea of recording music would have occurred to me if it wasn't for Lil Wayne's hip-hop music. He truly is one of the greatest to ever do it.

Eminem- The Marshal Mathers LP, Encore, The Eminem Show, The Slim Shady LP

My first rap was written because of "8 Mile" the movie. You may not hear his influence in my music, but I can assure you his music had a huge impact on me picking up a pen and beginning to rhyme words and statements. He's a true legend.

Kanye - KIDS SEE GHOST, ye, The Life Of Pablo, Yeezus, Watch the Throne, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, 808s & Heartbreak, Graduation

One of my favorite artist and always will be. You'll hear similar melodic intros, hooks, bridges, and outros that are heavily influenced by Kanye on my albums. 

Jay Z - The Blueprint III, Watch the Throne, Magna Carter... Holy Grail

Magna Carter... Holy Grail-- the pinnacle of hip-hop music. I aspire to create that level of music one day. 

Beyonce - BEYONCE, Lemonade

2 of the greatest albums I've ever heard in my entire life. Again the pinnacle of urban music. The Production on both albums are not of this world.

STRONG CONTENDERS 

I can't say that the following influenced my music but they are among my favorite records of all time.

Lorde - Melodrama, Pure Heroine

I don't understand how it's possible to have this amount of hits on one album. I Love Lorde's music so much and always will.

Taylor Swift - Reputation 

A great album. The production and performance was great. 

G-Eazy - The Beautiful And Damned, When It's Dark Out 

Kendrick Lamar - Good kid, m.A.A.d. city, DAMN.

Travis Scott - Owl Pharaoh, Days Before Rodeo, Rodeo, Birds on the Trap Sing Mcknight

Meek Mill - Wins & Losses, DC4, Dreams Worth More Than Money, Dreamchasers 3, Dreams and Nightmares, Dreamchasers 2, Dreamchasers

Chief Keef - Finally Famous
