V-Henny: Who and What inspired you to make music?

V-Henny: How long have you had this creative vision and what pushes you to
be consistent ?

Count: I’ve had the vision of rapping since 1996 while jotting down lyrics to paper while on my terrace of 300 palisade in Yonkers, NY. I even ordered a rhyme book to study syllables and rhyme patterns.  I wasn’t consistent for awhile but I said it’s time to go hard or go home now  so I’ll be dropping a lot soon and staying with it. 

V-Henny: Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Count: Nas and Jay-z.

V-Henny: Do you feel like you have overcome any boundaries you have set for
yourself? What were they and how did you conquer them?

Count: Yes I have set boundaries to be professional at all times, and to do what I say and say what I mean. I feel like , I learned to not limit myself to a style of music that doesn’t fit me like everyone else is doing . Like today to me everyone sounds the same and sometimes different is better. 

V-Henny: When did you come to realize how important it is to understand the business aspect of music? 

Count: After leaving the booth one session a long time ago , and a producer I met in NYC told me that my team and I had good lyrics but no one would ever hear us or take us serious until our songs were mixed down properly. I knew then it was more to the music than just the rapping in the booth aspect. 

V-Henny:  In order to succeed in life you have to know how to give credit and give back . Who would you give credit to for your success thus far?

Count: Basically myself for persevering and sticking with it . Basically Know one believes I can do this . There have been people along the journey, that have given me studio time and a chance but only I have put the writing in and stayed with the process. No one will care and  be happier for me then me. 

V-Henny: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Count: To let the real in. Give a shot to some unknown artist . There’s a lot of talented people out here , doing this for the love , that need a chance to show the world they can do big things under the right machine. 

V-Henny: What’s one thing you would want your fans to know about you?

Count: That I’m accessible and available.  I’m for the people, ready to expand my brand by staying in my own lane . I want to give them something different , real rap about real life things that are out here occurring today. That we can all be real, just being ourselves and that be good enough. Stay prayed up and you can achieve anything.
