His musical style is best described as a blend of Midwest rap (a style of hip hop - performed by artists from the Midwestern United States – that, in contrast with its East Coast, West Coast and Southern counterparts, has very few consonants) and hardcore rap (a genre characterized by confrontation and aggression, whether in the lyrical subject matter, the hard, driving beats, the noisy sampling and production, or any combination thereof). He said in an interview, “I’ve been like this my whole life. I’ve always been a class clown and a jokester. I’m just an energetic person. That’s why I want to bring laughter and fun back to the game… I really want to change the youth. I come from Chicago and I come from the hood. I’m from Englewood, like the bad part… I just want to make sure my brothers, sisters and my daughter are straight. I consider myself a role model now and that’s really important to me.” He’s had a stellar career with 5 mix tapes.
