Why this name?
Too much Ninja Turtles as a kid and Wu influence in my teens.
Do you play live?
Haven't hit an open mic in years, but I've always loved jumping into cyphers and leaving people shocked. Best thing I've heard a few times is "you make me wanna quit rappin'"

I never had any real shows, but most people I ever spit for anywhere gave me my props... and that's real love, no hype.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Eliminated the middle man for a long time for people in the Tonedeff, Napster era. Not anymore. Now music labels, corps, and product labels own this sh*** too.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
All I need is an engineer and a beat. Of course.
Your influences?
The RZA influences me alot, in music and hip-hop philosophy. I'm influenced alot by artists like Enya as a cultural identity thing, a respect for her beautiful ways and her secluded castle lifestye I'm so jealous of. Lauryn Hill for content. I love the Unplugged album not just Miseducation - very underrated as a thought provoking lyricist.

Canibus as someone who's still here, still raps just to rap, despite the crucifictions. That's a real artist... f*** the money, f*** the fans - do it cause your life depends on it, 'cause you're meant to do it.

Tonedeff for honesty, self sufficiency, perseverance, originality and creativity, and for never being afraid to do something different for his own reasons.

2Pac... too much to even start typing ha
Favorite spot?
16th Street Mall, Denver
Equipment used:
Cool Edit Pro and a built in laptop microphone... that's it. NO BUDGET PRODUCTIONS
Anything else...?
Shouts to Mom, Ghattz, Ecko, Sestren, Tooth Lucero aka A-Bone, Martina, Chan, Anne and fam
