What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

I enjoy getting to regularly create something new. I appreciate the process of making music, from concept, sounds, to lyrics. Like most art, there are a lot of parts that go into making a song, and I enjoy laying down those puzzle pieces.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Childish Gambino, Tyler the Creator, Vince Staples, A$AP Rocky, Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, Travis Scott, FKA Twigs, Glass Animals, Drake, Tame Impala

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

I would use the 10K to help fund my next project. Something of worth that I could use to help me get to the next level creatively and professionally, whether it be project costs, marketing, or production.
