The video for “Beat up the Beat” is interesting. We shot it in Miami with a fake police car and really amplified the hook where I state that we don’t stop for police. Should be coming out in the next couple weeks.
Iconic hip hop figures like Eminem and 50 Cent have served as sources of inspiration for your music. How do you manage to incorporate these influences while preserving your unique sound and artistic identity?

My second single to drop would be “Space.” It’s more of a melodic vibey spacey type of song. I like to switch things up. I’ll be experimenting with all types of vibes in the next upcoming months with all different types of beats.
