  1. I collaborate with many people Artist, producers, Songwriters, Video Game developers, movie Producers. That way I stay with fresh new Ideas. I believe that many brains are better then one. It doesn’t matter if it is a new upcoming person or a seasoned one. It takes a lot of patience because ALL ARTIST HAVE EGOs. It just matters if they are humble.

    1. Shout out to my amazing partner PCP! Music is the single greatest art form in the world, so the possibility of making it my full-time career as well as the many different collaboration opportunities with artists and fellow composers keeps me grinding hard

  2. Motivation is my son. Inspiration comes from all the new young talent that’s being brought into the game! Competition inspires me to be even greater!


  3. besides pure love of the sport i would haft to say music is always evolving it never stays the same!

  4. Music Is My Passion , My life My Language , So what really motivates me to keep making it , is the dream of gettin bigger in the game , of cours with benefits lol , Green papers ^^

  5. What inspires and motivates me is when I hear an old genre of music re-invented and brought to the new age. I love hearing a new hip hop song that sounds like its straight outta of the early 90s. Also, when an artist that we havnt heard from in ages releases a song or an album. That always inspires me to make some heat or to atleast try to cook up something.

  6. Jst the sound of music it self all them dudes dat jst make if fun,it just keep the heart popping

  7. What motivates me are my influences; Q-Tip (ATCQ), Pete Rock, DJ Premier, etc. Whenever I feel stagnant with creativity, I just watch an interview of theirs & I instantly feel inspired. Whether it’s by the things that they say or just their longevity in-general. Sometimes, you need words of encouragement for an extra push. Other than that, I’m inspired by life. There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t strive for success. My only objective with music is to influence the world through ‘audio art’.

  8. The love for music keeps me going. Even with an everyday 9-5, I got music playing in my head. Growing up listening to music has been a pass time in my family and nothing else really make sense to me, but music. This is a true passion, a love……a way of life.

  9. Honestly my drive is the youth man causethis wack ass industry is destroying our youth. I want to bring this shit back to the days when we had head nodding music with messages. Not this jump around IMA dope boy massive killer music. A lot of youth are missing the proper role models and a lot tend to look at musicians. Think about it 9 times out of10 they do some of the shit they rap about or dress like some kinda homo. Pretty much I wanna take it back to hip hop

  10. Making music is just stronger than me, every decision I make in my life are made with the goal that one day I’ll be able to make music all day everyday for the rest of my life. It’s the only thing I really like to do and the only thing I am sort of good at

  11. Nobody tells this to people who are beginners
    I wish someone told me. This is for all of us who do creative work.
    We into it because we have good taste but there is this gap.
    For the first couple of years you make stuff, it’s just not that good; it’s time to be good.
    It has potential but it’s not, but your taste.
    The thing that got you into the game is still killer.
    Your taste is why your work disappoints you.
    A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit, most people I know who do interesting creative work went through years of this.
    We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we wanted it to have.
    We all go through this.
    If you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you got to know its normal and the most important thing you can do is to do a lot of work put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish something.
    It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap and your work will be as good as your ambitions.
