With my confidence!

Who would be a dream music collaborator of yours?

Travis Scott and Lil Wayne.

What does your songwriting process look like?

I start my songwriting process by listening to and creating my own beats. Then, I get my muse.

Your music has a signature Trapper (trap rapper) sound to it. In future music releases, are you looking to experiment with your sound or continue this signature style?

In the future, I will be experimenting with my sound and continuing my signature style.

You are a passionate, talented skateboarder. Do you ever get inspiration for songwriting while skating?

I don’t get inspiration while skating because I am focused on tricks! Skating is hard.

What has the reaction to “Trap de Diseñador” been like from fans?

The reaction to “Trap de Diseñador” has been very positive, and the fans say it has a fresh sound. They like the beat that I made with my friend, J.S.
