How old are you? Where are you from?

I am 26 years old, and I was born January 12th 1986. I am from Guthrie, Oklahoma. Swag!
What obstacles have you faced rapping? Can you give me some specific details?

A guy came up to me and booed me during a live performance at Club Hard Times in Guthrie, Oklahoma. I kept going and rocked the show and people asked us to come back; so it was all alright.

What is the greatest achievement that you have accomplished as a rapper? Please elaborate.

The biggest accomplishment I have achieved is getting my voice heard. I have been taking small steps, and my goal is for my small steps to turn into huge leaps. The master plan is for us to take over.

What is the worst experience you have come across as a rapper? How did you deal with the situation?

The worst experience is performing in front of no one. We had a performance at Brick-Town Live, and the audience consisted of a security guard and a bartender. The security guard and the bartender jammed out, laughed and told us good job after the show. In the future, we have many music videos coming out, so we are going to keep on pushing.

What are your rapping plans for the future? What are you going to do to reach your goal?

I am going to keep on grinding and focus on coming out with new music and new videos for the future.
What made you decide to become a rapper?

I have always liked music. I went down to Detroit with my parents, and I liked the way the music sounded. I listen to music in my truck and I love the way music makes me feel.

Why did you assemble PRP?

We love hip and we are hip hop. PRP decided to go against what everyone else decides to do. People like to be all normal and stuff, but we try and be the most extreme hip hop artists out there, and we love what we do, man. I love music.
How long have you been rapping in the group PRP?

We have been together in the PRP group since 2005, and I met C3 in 1998 in the 7th grade. We always have messed around free-styling and over time it got more serious.

How old are you? Where are you from?

27 years old, from Guthrie, Oklahoma. Swag!
What obstacles have you faced rapping? Can you give me some specific details?

Sometimes when I have to perform and nobody is in the crowd it’s frustrating. When I perform, and I see nobody in the crowd, it builds my character because it means that I love what I am doing and it’s tough to keep going.
What is the greatest achievement that you have accomplished as a rapper? Please elaborate.

The gigs and the opportunity to network with people that is high up in the industry. I got to perform at the Pogo-OKC, and that night we had the whole crowd fist pumping to our rap music. That was a dope performance. I also enjoyed shooting the beer pong video and the video was a huge success and is a big monster for us.

What is the worst experience you have encountered as a rapper? How did you deal with the situation?

I would say performing when nobody is there and being able to convert people to give our music a chance are the two difficult obstacles we have faced.

What are your rapping plans for the future? What are you going to do to reach your goal?

We want to be bigger than the Beatles, and we have said this since day one. We are going to perform as long as we can, and we hope we can get on tour someday. Our goal is to become worldwide, so that everyone will know what we do and respect what we bring to the table.
What made you decide to become a rapper?

I always been around music and I listened to my parent jam out to music in my spare time. Music has always been in my life, and when I was two years old, I first broke my mother’s turn table because I was trying to scratch it like a hip hop record. All the people that have done it before me are unique and the things they bring allow the country to come together. It’s all good Music is what it is.

Who is your favorite rapper? Why?

My favorite rappers of all time are Tupac and Biggie. Right now, I love Wiz Khalifa, Currency, and I am currently jamming the Kendrick Lamar album. Kendrick’s CD has not left my CD player yet. That is what I jam.
Do you have any other talents besides rapping?

I am pretty good at football, because I played football for OSU, but now I am old. I can cook well and I can do it all.

What is your dream job?

My dream job would be to be a president of a division 1 College. That is what I will do later on in my life.
What is your rapping style?

My rapping style is random, and it changes like the weather in Oklahoma. I can sing and I can rap slow or fast. I use it all when I rap because I am a talented rapper.
What advice can you give to aspiring rappers that want to make rapping their career?

Never stop or never quit, because you are going to face the depths of hell when it comes to trying to make it. Nobody will believe in you, but you got to dig deep and keep kicking ass to reach the top. It takes a while to make it in the industry, but once you do, it’s worth it.

What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear would be to hang out in the forest and see Big Foot.

Tell me something interesting about yourself that nobody would know?
I can beat C3 in a game of one-on-one basketball.
