Have you performed in front of an audience?
I do perform live. I don't sing live though because I am not very comfortable with my singing as of yet. I enjoy performing very much because it gives me a chance to connect with my fans and the crowd. A special moment was when a girl gave me a t-shirt that said "I Love Sean Prodigy" on it. It made me very happy to know that I have fans that enjoy me and my music.
Your musical influences
Drake is a major influence on me. Only because he is relatable and I can say that I'm like him. I'm not afraid to take chances with my music. The most important thing to me is making music that I would enjoy myself but also make it relatable to my fans. A lot of me goes into my music. Another influence of mine is Eminem. Eminem makes music that he wants to make. He doesn't care about having radio hits or anything. He speaks his mind no matter what and I do the same.
