And stay consistent of course.
How has COVID affected you since march? How has it affected your industry?
I haven't been able to perform since March and how it has affected the industry artist can’t tour and do shows right now so we can’t make any money so that’s hurting the industry.
What do you think of the City of Orlando?
I think Orlando is a great city but i have never been to Orlando. I’m not from Orlando but I can tell you about Chicago.
What's something about Chicago that ordinary people won’t know
Me as a kid growing up in Chicago it was hard because of what i came from. I grew up in a shelter barely had clothes.
It was Me, my Mama, Big Brother and my Big Sister. We managed and made it out the struggle (shelter). Chicago isn't the best city but its a lot of love everywhere. Besides violence, Chicago has been strong for a long time but a lot has changed in my generation.
A Lot of killing, Police Brutality, Gang Violence, and No Structure. These are all examples of how my generation has been affected a lot.
What are your hopes and dreams for the future?
My hopes and dreams for the future is to be a traveler I want to explore the world with my family and do things i never got to do growing up.
I want to gift something to this world and show that I'm ready for anything thrown at me. Shout out to my management Kamdre Ent.

I can’t respond to that question because I m not following anything on AI right now.
