Less is more. Simplicity is awesome. That’s all you need in life. Its just my personal philosophy.
I think it’s important to evolve and grow and take risks creatively, instead of repeating yourself and doing the same thing over and over.
If you get comfortable, that’s how you fall off.
Nothing tops making a living off your passion.
Lost in this young world, I’m just trying to navigate See the pie sliced, I’m just trying to grab a plate.
Never give up and never conform.
I’ve put myself in this position where I haven’t set myself up with a Plan B. I don’t have a safety net; it’s all in.
If you push yourself to stay hungry, you’re always working towards at least taking steps forward. If you’re taking steps forward, then you’re making progress.
In anything I do I try to stay true to myself because I think that’s what matters most, and then the challenge is getting all these different sides of my personality to fit together in one box. It isn’t an easy task. But that’s basically what the end result represents.
I wear what I like to wear, I don’t pick out clothes to try to fit in or whatever, I just like what I like.
I think when people get comfortable is when they fall off.
I dunno, there were always people believing in me, but you just gotta be confident in whatever you wanna do.
I listen to a wide array of music, all depends on the mood I’m in at the time.
I think my style revolves around the philosophy that less is more, that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. That goes for my taste in design and in clothes, and even affects the way I approach music. I’m all about keeping things simple, and minimal, but being able to convey something powerful through that approach.
It’s important to push yourself to get better at your craft – whatever that is. It’s important to grow and evolve with each project.
I was slicking my hair back when I was in sixth grade.
I’m a Gemini, so there’s two people in me. Straight up. There’s the nerd who is totally zoned out in the studio, EQ-ing this kick drum, raising this snare one decibel, or swapping this high hat out for another. Then there’s the other side who’s a performer. I have to go out on stage and be electric, a fire cracker, just run around the stage and give a show.
Life is good. I’ve got a apartment that is paid for with rap money. It’s good. It’s amazing. It’s a blessing. I wake up every day and appreciate how much of a blessing this is getting to do this. But it is important to always stay humble, grounded, focused, and maintain that same ambition you had when you had nothing.
Success is just being able to do what I love for a living, spend all my time doing it, connect with fans, and continue that for a long f – king time.
What inspires me is the desire to be on. The desire to be successful. The desire to reach people through my music and make a living off it and never have to do anything else. Being able to do music full time and travel the world and share this music with everybody. That’s the dream.
Just wearing all black comes from Johnny Cash. I’m on the road so much that if I wear all black my clothes never get dirty. You can’t tell if I’ve worn the same shirt twice.
In my dorm room, I was a hermit making music, I’ve always had a sense of urgency that I don’t have forever to make this happen.
I always think I’m going to record a lot on tour but it’s always hard to fit it in the schedule, and there’s a whole lotta’ other extra curricular activities that happen on the road.
I suppose sometimes the lack of privacy can be a little hard to deal with at times.
I think any time you’re at the end of a trip you’re usually pretty ready to come home and start working regularly again.
