How are you?
I’m excited. Blessed to be alive. Got a new song idea im gonna start. thank you for asking.
Can I love you forever?
thats completely your decision. forever is a long time though, i hope id be able to keep anyone’s love that long. im bad with love sometimes.
Your throat tattoo is cute
im glad you like it. its gonna be there forever. tattoos are like time capsules. the moment in time that i got this will always be important and real to me
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
water is my favorite.
Should I quit university?
that really depends. school cant teach you everything, but there is great value to take from it. but as far as artistic pursuits you have to learn with elbow grease. kids are graduating from school with degrees working at starbucks. thats tough. i think whatever route you choose education is huge, the decision is just institutionalized or self motivated.
Is your sperm fizzy since you got electrocuted?
i got super powers from the experience. only downfall is electronics seem to malfunction on me.
Anymore music with Donnie trumpet in the works for the future? Your last body of work with him was a classic
me and nico are going to get back at it. we got magic
I want to suck your dick. How can I accomplish this?
you gotta get your courage up and stop posting anonymous
Do you believe in God?
i do. i think god is what you make it. i believe that god is like the god particle, which is some molecule shit that is like a particle thats found in everything. basically saying that god is in everything around us; the air, the the water. i rap about god alot subconsciously. i just hate how man uses god as an excuse to perpetuate evil. i think religion has been one of the largest catalysts in negativity ever
Would you ever work with A$ap Rocky or Travi$ Scott?
shout out to A$AP Rocky he told me happy birthday i fuck with him for that lol. but i also really rock with his album and visuals pushing the boundaries and sonics of popular music.
Would you ever collab with kid cudi?
i fuckin love cudis music im really psyched for his new new.
Do you believe one day humanity will be united? And what would have to happen for this to occur?
humanity is humanity. as far as we’ve come from caves we still retain so many of our intrinsic properties. we love, we deceive, we fight, we hate, we fuck, we change our minds, we protect our own. we want to live forever, we hate getting old. i think though, that in 50 years, when our generation is really in power i think the racial hate will be less. because we've grown up loving each other. i have brothers who are white mexican black. and i would die for them.
