Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I’m from Jamaica queens, but you can call me grim. I like art a lot, horror shit, ha! I like fighting or mixed martial arts and I love music with everything in me. I never intended to make music outside of making beats but I one day was like whatever nobody wants to rap over what I produce cause it’s “different” so here we are. My mom’s Panamanian so I’m afro-Latino. Also West Indian. I’m into sound design and I can draw play a few instruments. I’m pretty chaotic but a calm kinda chaotic, The scary kind though.
What Inspires You Every day? : I family member I know I got killed, they took him from a strip club, to a house, shoot him, took him to the basement, then either the next day or another came back and set the house on fire to try and hide the evidence. I felt guilt cause he was trying to help me out and shit but I stalled on him. My other childhood also passed in an accident and another friend I was teaching how to make beats passed. Loss inspired me, and the mental loops that caused me. My art is pain. I lost a lot of people to violence, disease, accidents, and made some promises I want to keep that’s why I’m here. That inspires me not to end it.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Do what you want to do how you wanna do it cause in the end it’s not going to matter what anyone had to say, don’t be like some sort of psychotic, idiotic, Elitist. But live your life how you want.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : I want to score music? Maybe due sound design for spaceships, or something like nobody would do for fun lmao. I overall just want to be comfortable and at peace even if by myself in the end, I don’t care for money in excessive, romance, deep bonding I care about experience life. I got a bucket list!
What is a positive message you would like to give others? : The shit you want to kill yourself, or harm yourself or hurt yourself over eventually ends. It doesn’t mean you won’t slip or fall but everything we feel is temporary bittersweetly, happiness and sadness, pain and euphoria.
What questions would you like to ask others?:Did you vote? You taking care of your mind and body? Y’all willing to cause chaos for change? Haha
