Short Answer
11. I make music because: Sometimes the poems come as songs…
12. I want my fans to: Listen beyond the beats.
13. If I could share one thing about myself it would be:  God loves what I’m doing…
14. Wild Card!  Why does the best shit (e.g., music, poetry) happen when you’re hurting?
15. I want my musical legacy to be:  That people listen to my work far beyond my immediate presence…That it remains social commentary reflective of our (post)Modernity.
