Born and raised in New Jersey, music began to run its course during his childhood until present day. With his high energy and power punching lyrics “Millz” is a cut above the rest, heavily influenced from the early age of hip hop by artists such as Mobb Deep, Jay Z, Lloyd Banks, DMX and Fabolous. His latest single John Stockton his garnering attention nationwide. I recently had a chance to chop it up with him and here is what he had to say-
How long have you been doing what you’re doing and how did you get started in the first place?
About 8 years strong. A casette player Walkman is what got me started on wanting this dream. First set of headphones I ever rested over my ears bought life/music to me.
Who were the first influences on your music and style?
My parents and slick rick were my first influences on my music. Moms gave me style!

I feel like Drake would have to be the most influential and successful artist of today, from the way he packs houses,album work,marketing schemes and just all around great music he puts out consistently.
What aspect of the music making process excites you most, and what aspect discourages you the most?
Backings and Ad-Libs I love getting loose adding different effects and excitement to the song to keep my self and the listeners entertained.
In your experience thus far, what is the best piece of advice in this business you actually followed? And one you didn’t follow, but now know for sure that you should have?
Everyone isn’t your friend and everyone doesn’t have the best interest in you unless it’s super beneficial to them.
Business and pleasure don’t mix play everything at arms length.
Which ingredient do you think is most essential in making your sound and style the way it is?
I call it the wax on wax off treatment just a certain focus button I turn on within myself to keep my style and sound pumping the way it is!
