If you were not a Rapper/Trap artist, What would you be?
I would be a Poet, before I got into Hip Hop i used to write poems, so I guess that's where it all started and the rhythm developed inside me
If you were to choose between Music and Acting, what would you choose and why?
I'd definitely choose Music bro! Acting was just an additional plan to boost my career through media

Doing the Rhythm City extra cast was fun, it boosted My career in a big way, though I was just doing the untitled extras but to me it was big
