On how he was introduced to music:
Music has always been in my family down to my dad through my uncle. I’m just the next generation since it’s always been around me when I was younger when I looked up to my mom and dad to Michael Jackson and B2K was my favorite band growing up.
On signing with Epic Records:
There was a bidding war between Epic Records and Jive-now RCA-, which was bittersweet just having lables bid over me was really cool, but I ended up going with Jive because it felt better over there and they have my favorite artists like Usher, Chris Brown, and Justin Timberlake. It was an amazing feeling since all my hard work was finally paying off.
On his debut album:
We don’t have a title, yet but we have good quality music coming out for everybody. Not just my peers or kids younger than me, but all ages. I have amazing writers and producers The Underdog, R. Kelly, and so many others. I’m just excited for the fans.
