What do you do:
Where do you work:
Jurassic 5, Los Angeles, California
When did you realize your interest in music:
Probably when I was eleven or twelve. I didn’t know what I really wanted to do, but I knew I would be an entertainer. I didn’t know if it’d be basketball, sports, or music but I knew it would be in front of people.
What inspires you:
It depends on what I’m listening to. I may see a concert or watch a video. I might hear a song on the radio; it might be an R&B song. It might inspire me to write something. What if I had this beat, what would I do to it?
How would you advise others:
The number one thing is to be self-sufficient. I have a lot of respect for the South, from Houston, from Memphis. All these MCs out there because the number one thing they do is they don’t wait, they put their records out… If you go to any one of these states and go to independent stores everybody has their own record out. Each one puts out their own stuff and generates their own interest… That’s what I would say. Don’t wait on the label, do it yourself, put your own record out. You have to blow up in your own backyard first.
