THE TSAN30000 INTERVIEW
shot by @josh.ex
I was born in Atlanta and moved to Sacramento until I was 6. I moved back to Atlanta and would live there for the next 9 years. In those 9 years, I was mainly an athlete who enjoyed music but had no intentions of doing anything with it. I was just a normal kid. I wasn’t the best at basketball but I still had big dreams for it. I wanted to go to the nba. I moved from Georgia to PA in my sophomore year of high school to live with my dad and play ball up here. It was here that I realized I didn’t want to go to the nba or play college ball. I didn’t even really want to play high school ball that much. I wanted to make music. I started making music the summer going into my senior year, at first playfully. But I became very serious about music very fast and began perfecting my craft over the course of my senior year. After I graduated, I devoted 100% my time into myself and my career and the difference could both be seen and heard and I started to blossom into what I am becoming now.
Are you from Philly? What does the local music community mean to you?
I’m from Atlanta. The local music community means a lot to me because at the end of the day even though I’m not from here, this is where I live now. This is where I’ve met some of my closest friends. This is a community that I consider myself to be a part of now and I would love to be able to impact the community in a positive way and show people something different.
Who are some of your biggest inspirations?
I'd say my biggest inspirations are definitely Wayne, Uzi, Rocky, Carti, Gunna and Unotheactavis
How would you describe your sound/vibe to someone who’s never heard your music before?
I feel like I make two types of music. I make music that you can just have fun listening to. It’ll be something that’s catchy and fun to sing along to and hopefully it’ll change your mood a little bit and make you happy. And then I have music that I put more thought and emotion in to and I feel like you can feel that music. You can feel like emotions and relate and maybe it will make you sad or make you reminisce about a certain time in your life you felt what I’m saying.
You recently opened for Nascar Aloe at Pink Sotano. What was this experience like for you?
It was hot as fuck. But I had fun, I try not to think to much while I perform. I just want to enjoy the moment and I want everyone to capture and enjoy that moment with me. So it was fun. I hope everyone there had just as much fun as I did.
Tell us about your most recent release. What does this project mean to you? What was your inspiration?
My most recent release was my music video for Pop A Bean. It meant something to me because it was my first visual. But tbh that was a throw away. That was just to show niggas a sliver of what’s coming. We shot that the day after I recorded that song and none of it was planned so.... imagine what’s coming next!

Do you have any new music or visuals dropping before the end of the year?
Yes. I have a tape coming at the end of this month and I have a few visuals lined up so look forward for that definitely.
Who are some of your dream collaborations? Are there any local artists you would love collaborate with?
I want songs with Wayne, Rihanna, Uzi... I would love to work with A$AP Mob all those niggas are fire. I would love to work with Thug that’d be AMAZING. I just want to work with with everyone who’s authentic and makes great music tbh.
Do you plan on performing live more often?
Yeah I love performing. Whenever I have time to perform, I’ll be performing. I love the interactions and just being able to share that energy with everyone there.
What’s next for you?
Going Up!! I’m just going to keep working, keep growing, and keep elevating until I can’t anymore. I look forward to any and every blessing that comes my way!
