Because it just takes my stress away, it’s a sense of relief from the world, this shit actually takes me on another world, it puts me on an empty space as if I were by myself just chilling..
15. Taking this as a passion what works best with you for endeavors you may face (regarding to music)?
What works best for me is just like chilling out vibing out to other genres of music, watching a movie, chilling with the squad, just disconnect from rap for a little cause it sometimes becomes a repetitive thing and the creativity can go away, i try not to let the creative fuel run out.

19. who is one artist you wish to work on music with and why?
