Tell us about your music background and upbringing with hip hop culture.
Musically drawn in since a kid, was very much into dancing in the basement with my cousins to old jams my mom and aunties would play at their parties. Then we started snooping in the albums when our parents would leave…and find NWA albums at the bottom of the pile. From there I was in love with hip hop and everything attached to it from fashion to lifestyle.
