What makes me a unique artist is I bring a different cadence when I rap. I always rap about things that I do. I never fake anything, it all comes from the heart.

When it comes to art in this music game it really depends on you but for me it is something you can hear or see especially when a person put their sweat and tears into their project.

Unique, Rage, and Artistry.
