Times I've Been Interviewed

I was interviewed by KDMR Podcast in 2018 to talk about my career growth in Journalism, Artist Development and as an artist. The KDMR crew also gave me a chance to drop some gems and keys off for you up and coming artists.

Childish Gambino Camp 5 Year Anniversary Review (via Blavity) 

 

I consider Childish Gambino’s “Camp” and I feel some people sleep on Glover’s debut full-length album. So I wrote about it for Blavity.

DJ Sav One Covers Afropunk EP (via HipHop Nostalgia)

 

After making the Top 16 in the Afropunk Battle of the Bands competition in 2016, I released an EP called “Afropunk EP” which contained all the songs I would perform at the Battle of the Bands. The OG DJ Sav One picked this up and wrote an endearing and honoring piece on the EP. I couldn’t be more thankful.
