Everyone was making it look so east and there was a lot of garbage out at the time so I’m like “yo I can do that!” An old friend of mine had a laptop with the software to make music and some 10$ gummy headphones and I ft. On my first track ever. It took me all day to write my 16 lol

Zoe Forte: For starters the hardest and longest process is finding a good beat. from there it honestly depends on the vibe & energy I get from it. Sometimes I can hear a beat and just go off straight bars figure the hook out later. Sometimes I get a beat and I put an extreme amount of thought into every detail; do I want to start with a hook or should I go straight in? should I intro the song? Do I have a subject?how should I approach it? Etc. 

V-Henny: Tell me about your techniques for overcoming creative blocks.
