Everything else is just kind of scattered around.
How does music influence your life :
Music doesn’t just influence our life , music is our way of life , our music is what separates us away from majority of our generation because majority is out here selling dope , gang banging and killing. But with music it just brings our souls at peace.
If you werent creating music , what would you be doing instead :
Most of us would probably be doing something with art, like graphic design. Something that involves us to use our mind and think outside the box to explore the creativity.
Where do you see yourself in the next five years :
In the span over the next five years, we see ourselves doing extravagant collab hits with Erykah Badu.
Who or what are your biggest influences :
Hip-hop pioneers such as Nas, Big Daddy Kane, Lauryn Hill, Slick Rick, etc. Our biggest influence is just being different from everybody else and staying true to our own identities.

Top Dawg Entertainment fasho’
What is your stance on the progress that rap and hip hop may or may not be making right now :
Artist now a days aren’t putting their soul into their music. There aren’t any feel good vibes, just a lot of negativity and anger yelled into the microphone.
