What inspires him to rap started from a rap song by American rapper Nas “I Can” this song inspires me because the message behind this song is being what you want to be if you work hard at it and you can, so he can to reach his goals.

His dream is to work hard and make sold out shows both locally and internationally. Rap inspires us to go after our dreams and have faith that if we have the melodies and great lyrics, rap never had much to offer me, the Sky is not the limit.
” You have to keep your vision clear because only cowards love in fear. We always ignore the ones who adore us and adore the ones who ignore us and such is life. God is Love because he first loved us”.
