Rhyme Scheme, how are you feeling?
I'm feeling blessed. I'm happy to be here. Thank you for this interview.
Could you tell the readers a little about yourself right now?
I am a new indie artist making positive music with a worldwide sound. I am working to get my music to the next level. I speak 5 languages and have a PHD in Political Science. Music is an avenue for me to convey my message.
How do you feel about hip-hop right now?
Hip-hop is evolving right now. Artist such as Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Talib Kweli, and Nas are keeping hip-hop authentic. There is a lot of new talent who make the industry very interesting.
If you could change anything about Hip Hop right now, what would it be?
I would like rappers to speak about something more real than the TV screen. We need to break the cycle of glorifying violence and drug use. Talented artist can rap about anything beside the latest trends.

They both are dope but I like DJ. Premier better.

KZR Beatz produced your latest single "Four Letters", what other records do you have
produced by KZR Beatz?
I have several records with KZR Beatz. "Ready for Action", "Internal War", "Summer Time", and "Can't Stop".
How would you describe KZR Beatz sound?
He has a very unique sound. It's a soulful/Hip hop sound from the 90's.
What other beat makers are you working with right now?
I'm working with Nabeyin from California and TMZ from Detroit. They both have dope sounds.
What can listeners expect to hear on your forthcoming LP titled All Black?
All Black will give listeners a taste of real hip-hop. I will express my raw emotions and thought patterns.
