2020

YJ: What’s your current hustle?

2020: I'm currently a student, I’m working towards my Bachelors Degree. I have a year left so thats my main goal. Then hopefully go back for my Masters. 

YJ: Has what you’re doing now been a life-long interest? 

2020: Photography has been a love of mine for a while. I appreciate the quality and being able to capture what I see, it’s crazy to me. Music was something I always liked but got into it very late because of how my house hold was. My parents are very religious so I was brought up on a lot of gospel and didn’t really get deep into music until high school.

YJ: What’s the most memorable career advice you’ve received? 

2020: "Go to college!" 

YJ: What’s been your biggest obstacle? 

2020: Going to school and working for myself. It’s hard but I’ve been able to do it for 3 years and only have one left so I think I will be ok haha.

YJ: How do you see the photography & production industries changing within the next 10-15 years?

2020: It’s scary to think what the music industry will look like in 10-15 years from now, because things change so fast. Photography in my opinion will always (somewhat) be the same because it’s really about capturing moments but I am excited to see how well phones will get at being photographers secondary tool because of how advanced these cameras are getting.

YJ: If you could tell your younger self one thing about life, what would it be?

2020: Enjoy every second of it because once your in the real world your going to miss not having bills to pay.

YJ: Where do you find inspiration, when needing it? 

2020: Whenever I need inspiration I go take a shower or a bath, that’s the space where I come up with my best ideas. I also go to my parents house for a few days, put my headphones on and make music by the window. 

YJ: What has been the most fulfilling moment in your career so far? 

2020: Juicy J hopping on a beat I produced, he’s a legend in my book. Shout out to Swoosh for that.

YJ: What would you say to someone who may think that their talent is not an ideal or possible career path? 

2020: I tell everyone: Do whatever you want. We are literally capable of doing whatever we want and there are no rules in life. There’s no rule book that says you can do this but can’t do that. If your're not good at something keep doing it. You get better with practice. I quit making music at the beginning of high school for like a year, then picked it up again towards the end in 2013 and was just playing around but while playing around I started making stuff that I liked and just been doing it ever since and I just kept getting better. I didn’t start making beats that I liked until summer of 2016. I still don’t like most of my videos because I know I can be so much better but it will happen over time.

YJ: What do you see the future holding? 

2020: I can’t really even say where my future will be because I have no idea. I know it will be good, great, amazing but I can’t tell you exactly how because I don’t know. But one thing I can say is that I’m dropping a lot of music this year.
