There are so many musical influences for me and I would not want to exclude anyone because they all impacted me in some way or another, but if I had to list some I would say: Tupac, Biggie, Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot, E-40, Eminem, Proof, Bizarre, K-os, and MF DOOM. These are the artists that have the biggest impact on me musically as a influence.
A lot of Audio Technica hardware, and Adobe Pro-tools for mixing.
To those starting out in this music industry, be prepared for any feedback, no matter if it is good or bad feedback be humble and thankful that someone even took the time to listen. We all grow musically with each project we produce, and never be discouraged if you truly have a passion and love for music.
