as I can to my music.

[TUHH] How did you get started in music?

Smarts :
I've always love to rhyme since I was a kid, but really started focusing on recording
when I no longer heard what I wanted to listen to through various outlets like radio, tv and
music stores.

Well Caper and I had done a track that Su-Preme produced before on my album Political Party a few years back.
He just sent me the track and I was with it.

I heard the verse and chorus and knew my direction.
