If you want to get into the music business, learn about the business before it learns you. Do you want to do it fast or do it right? Study your art. Stay away from ego.

Winning the Grammy.

Red, blue, and gold.

What’s your goal in creating and playing music?
To bring an experience that helps create and preserve the culture I grew up in for future generations. I find that there’s value in true roots and taking pride in who we are. I find more peace in spirituality. I love my family and fans. Our ancestors protected culture and fought in what they believed in. They believed in religion and it saved their name. There’s no point in existing without that. Learn your fate. Trust in God.
