How did you decide to become an artist?

John D. Contradiction: Family was always into music, and growing up I used to always go to shows, I was always into poetry and such, then one decided to start up a hardcore band and have been just writing all types of music since.

Be yourself and be consistent if you like what you do then thats all that should matter.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do play live, as often as I can, I also attend concerts and eventually want to book some.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

street dreams was never something that talked to me, i wanted out cuz that dream it took allot from me, No priorities its overdraft or look bummy, trying to live champaign dreams with beer money.

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I released an EP, and a mixtape so far hip hop wise. Right now im putting together some projects with some dope artists.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I would, honestly the pros would obviously be the exposure and getting my message around professionally, but the cons would be the amount o work that goes into the music itself that into your doing.

Any last words?

Shout out to just everyone doing it to do it, everyone that loves what they do, and also to my people who roll with me. Shout out to Elmont long island.
