With a unique style of music, Tell us about your musical inspirations growing up?
I never wanted to be a rapper. It just happened one day and I got lucky.

If you could define Mississippi Hip Hop, how would you explain the southern style to the world?
Mississippi is one of the most underrated states when I comes to Hip Hop. Southern style music gives life to the soul.

While many may feel you are copying a wave due to the success of Lil Nas X, you’ve been making music a bit longer than the “Old Town Road” creator. Tell us about your musical background?
I honestly created yup on my tractor on accident. Lil Nas X made an incredible song and promoted right that is all.

Also known as the Trap Cowboy, how did you discover and design your own sound?

Growing up in Mississippi everybody is country. All you see is acres and acres of farmland. You grow accustomed to the country lifestyle if that’s all you grew up around.

Your biggest hit, “Big Boom” is both comical and catchy, how did the concept come together?
With the help of my little brother we created a master piece.

Did you know “Big Boom” was going to be a hit?
Honestly I did. I told my managers as soon as I finished writing it.

While there are some similarities, have you gotten a response, comment, or reaction from Lil Nas X on “Big Boom”?
Nope… When he signed his record deal the label made him unfollow me I’m pretty sure of it.

How’d you feel knowing some of today’s biggest recording artists like JuiceWrld are fans of your Country Hip Hop style sound?
It feels great for someone to finally just give me a chance just try something new for a change.

Do you feel Lil Nas X’s success to bring Trap Country to the mainstream benefits or hinders your success?
Success. Because people respects it more. Like these kids can make you a superstar who cares if adults don’t support you?

Produced by Dozier, bouncing 808’s lay the ground for 1$t to address anyone with something to say behind the scenes.
