What's your zodiac sign?
What is your definition of a Modern Day Hippie and how do you identify as one?
I think a modern day hippie comes down to your spirit. A modern day hippie is simply a free spirit that doesn't conform to societal norms.
How would you define your style? Where do you like to shop?
I would say it depends on my mood. Some days I'm 60s mod and some days I'm 90s grunge. Since I enjoy getting fashion inspiration from past eras, I tend to shop lots of thrift or find vintage things on eBay.
How did you decide to start on your venture/career path?
I've always been a writer. From as long as I could remember, I've always enjoyed writing screenplay, poems, cheesy love songs, and stories. However, I didn't take music seriously until people around me pushed me into rapping at the age of 17. So, I studied hip hop, started posting freestyles on YouTube, and have been growing ever since.
Who and what are your influences and inspirations?
I'm constantly inspired by people who are ambitious, so I watch lots and lots of interviews to fuel me. As for what artists inspire me the most? Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Andre 3000, Lauryn Hill, and 2pac.
What are you biggest dreams?
My ultimate dream is to be able to use my gift to help cater to world peace, cheesy I know. Writing is my passion, so I want to write books, movies, and music of course.
What are some of the challenges you face?
Me versus me to be honest. I'm constantly in a battle within my own mind.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself owning every festival stage, 2 Grammys deep, and starting in an HBO show I helped co-write.
What piece of advice would you give to other young people trying to pursue their dreams?
You can literally do anything you put your mind to. Never let the fear of falling keep you from flying.
What themes do you wish to see in our generation in 2015?
The return of the real. And it's definitely happening.
Anything else we should know?
New music dropping in the fall!
