What is the best advice you’ve been given?
6ix: I met a woman at this Powerhouse gym on Southfield road in Michigan. She showed up at my job at the moment at Krogers on Greenfield rd.

That quote was burned into my soul from that day on.
If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
6ix: How much value is given to the music that is being created. Music does so much for life, and because there is a high saturation of it, they feel as though the value of it should go down. Light up some good kush and put some headphones on, you’ll know how much music is worth after that. It’s up to you as an artist to market yourself.
