Where are you from?
I’m from Toronto, Canada. Home of some of the best hip hop producers on this planet.
Tell us about how you got into music ?
I first got into creating music in high school. I had a deep love for hip hop music and freestyle battling so I chose to pursue it professionally.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
My friend and neighbor brought FL Studio version 4 to my place and told me to learn it so I could make beats for our crew. Soon after that I got hooked and it became my life. The reason I use FL Studio is because makes the work flow quicker for me and I also learn something new everyday about it.
