I say Im not with that [stuff] because I feel like it can get corny. I dont wanna be put in a box as to what I can do as an artist. My movement is focused towards the dreamers — whoever they may be… I just dont want to be boxed in because a nigga like me can get claustrophobic.
I found myself musically. Before, I felt like I was experimenting a little more and seeing what I could do. I still do that because thats me, but its definitely more polished.
“Real Niggas” was just a track I came up with when I was listening to music and hearing the [phrase] “REAL NIGGAS” being used so much. Everyone claims that they’re a real nigga, so I wanted to name the track something generic so [listeners] can be like, “Oh another song using ‘Real niggas’, but then you play the song nothing about it is generic.”
I really wanted to come hard on this track, so there would be no doubt that I got what it takes! I spent so many nights racking my brain trying to get the video right… I wanted people to watch the video and be like DAMN this [guy] is on some other s#!t..and I think I did that.
With this next project I’m really bringing it back to where this all started. I moved out to Florida when I was 15 and I met my brothers out there in Ocala. We got into some wild shit and we lived in a suburb called Sun Valley, thats why this tape is called “in the Valley”. The music on this tape will definitely stir shit up — its that good!
