Who are your influences when writing – lyrically and musically?
YL: When writting I let the beat talk to me and write a hook.Or sometimes I may write a hook and find a beat that fits it.Musically as a fan I still listen to Naam Brigade a legendary group from my Hood and my cousin Nikki Flowerz they always got some hot lyrics.Of course I am a Jay-Z and Jeezy fan as well.
