Tell us about Mirror Muzik the label.
"My right hand Gutta and I started the label. I was like 18-19 and he was 22, we would sit around and make music all day for no reason so we decided to come up wth a label name. I came up with like a thousand names before I got to Mirror Muzik. We went an incorporated it and ended up building our own studio and from there we started doing our thing independent, out of our own pocket."
What would you say is your best body of Work?
"I would say "Reflections." Not saying it is my only body of work because i’ve had music before then but just the way it came together. All the songs were already out all I had to do was put the songs together into a tape. When I listen to it or ride to it, it's like I can’t skip a song, I just let it ride out. Even when people tell me when they listen to it they say, they can’t take it out, they just let it ride out, and they don’t have to skip a song. I guess because all the songs were singles at first or were already out so it already had the impact. That’s why I say it’s my best body of work. That time was when I was finding myself as an artist. Back then, I was doing music but I was more into the lyrics and the structure of the song. As I became more conscious and aware of my music, I put more into the message and energy into my songs song. That’s why Reflections is my best body of work because all the feelings and emotions that went into making that tape."
So you are working on your next project, so what can we expect from the project?
"The project, I don’t really want to put a date on it because as J. Cole said: “Ideas don’t have a date”. And it hit me like damn he’s right because it’s not a finished product until it’s done. The creative process you cant do that at the same time as you do the marketing and the promoting process. So I want to finish the creative side first, and then when its done I'll put a date on it. But I’ll say it’s about 67% done. It’s coming soon though. The title is Mirrors on the Wall: Reflections II."

Who should we expect on the album as far as producers and do you have any features?
"I’m sorry y'all it ain’t no features on the tape and since its Reflections part II, I wanted to use my life, my story, my everyday troubles and struggle to connect with the audience. That’s why I have no features. Rippa produced the entire album because for a project like this you have to sit down with the same mind and channel the same energy and create"
What’s next for this project?
"Just tour and hit the fans to xpand the fan base and make money. The website coming soon too with merchandise. Along with a short movie/documentary that’s gonna tell the story that goes along the project."
