My brotha Sensi Koop, only because the knowledge he gave me and the times he helped me out when I was homeless and didn’t have anywhere to go. Without him it wouldn’t be a Dxnny Dolphin best believe.

The fact that you have the power to change the culture and influence people to do better. Isn’t it crazy what music can do to people for the greater good.
10. What impact do you want to have on the world?
Sort of a iconic impact and more then just music really like building schools. Teaching the youth that you don’t have to be a rapper but you can own the label, be the songwriter. I just want kids involved in art so they can stay outta trouble. Trust me jail ain’t worth it take it from me.
11. What are your ambitions with music is this just a hobby or is this a full blown 24/7 lifestyle your embodying?
This 24/7 all day everyday I can’t do nothing but rap and create art. This ain’t for the weak hearted I gave up school, relationships, and family for this just to have my name In the history books and there isn’t a damn person who can’t stop that.

I keep saying my homie Gojibeanbryant because goddam I ain’t seen a rapper with so much passion and gritty vibes with their music in a long time. And he looked out for me when shit was rough with me. Plus he’ll outwork any rapper you put on the board. Look out for him he just dropped a new video on YouTube called Skate Slide it’s mad fuego.
13. Anything else you have to say ?
Remember you have a gift people wish they could have don’t take that for granted no matter what because it can be taken from you in a heartbeat then what you left with? Who ever is reading this your apart of the culture put yourself in the history books, help ya community, and teach the youth creativity instead of violence.
