“I was going to college in Long beach - when I dived into Soulection radio before Soundcloud was the big thing. I got immersed into heavy trappy style vibes, high hats, all of that.Soulection didn’t really have a big presence then, so I decided to make my very own Soulection-inspired playlist on Spotify. If I found songs that had a similar vibe and I added them to my “Soulection collection and vibes' playlist."
What music did you listen to growing up?
“I love having a vibe going. When I grew up, my parents listened to country and I was attending Catholic school, so I really had no idea of what Hip-Hop was until 3rd grade, when I joined a public school. - I got lucky enough to be referred to kiss.fm by my old elementary school friend, where I first heard Top 40s music. I’d sneak to my local internet store where I’d burn CD’s with music from the 60,70,80’s etc. ”
