The American hip-hop artist, whose album Flow Riiot has been produced by DJ Premier, says everything reveals a pattern if you zoom out far enough

How would you describe your sound?
I like to describe my sound as being primal and raw. Animalistic yet soft and docile at times. Beautiful and Rough. Deep. Emotional.

What informs your music and songwriting?
Connecting with objects and humans. I am fascinated by the answer always being inside the test. Everything is a pattern if you zoom out far enough. I feel inspired by how intense and incredible something can feel and how we can see that same experience happen between other living or non-living things. For example the symbiotic relationship between a tree and the sun. The tree using sunlight to release oxygen allowing us to breathe. Humans breathe about seven to eight trees worth of oxygen a year. Sometimes love can feel that way. Feeling connected to the way of our world and many other worlds inspires my creativity.

How have you evolved as an artist over the years?
I have worried less and less about if it’s good enough or if it’s “right” or “wrong”. I am more and more myself in every moment which allows for my channel to be open, free and clear.

What are you up to at the moment artistically?
Right now I am performing live around the world and writing more. I am also moving into the Sound+Touch project with a very talented body healer Amber Lee. I guide humans through a sound meditation looping my vocals and playing guitar// soft drum while she uses her magical healing powers through touch.

What’s on your rider?
Black coffee, water, Palo Santo.
