“Ermm, yeh, I guess so. When ever I wasnt too busy I would often write a few lyrics in my notepad. And as everyone has done at lest once in their life, sung in the shower.” [laughs] How do you feel after your rapid rise to fame?

“Well Im astonished realy. I never thought I would become this popular so fast. I’m only hoping my music for the fans will last.” What’s the chemistry with you and Nikki Minaj?

“Nicki Minaj? [laughs] I dont realy know what to say about that topic. Erm...pass.” Who have you most enjoyed working with so far?

“I think i’ll have to say Nicki minaj. I know you were probally expecting that answer, but shes just such a bubbly person. She always gives it her all and brings such a good vibe to the studio.” Are there any new artist collabs we can look out for in the future?

“Yeh definatly, me and DJ Khalid are currently working on a album where me and him will colaberate on a series of different songs.” How old were you when you first found your passion for music?

“I think I was about 9 when I got into music. But it wasnt until I was around 15 when I realy wanted to pursue a music career.”
