Tabaris: My biggest surprise would have to be people I have never know reaching out telling me about my music. That felt amazing. Even a few major artist.

By making a business. New online clothing business, Food Catering and more.. and these people are making money!  plus I felt like this song is a club banger and would get people moving.

Hurt was done for those who did not have anyone for Valentine’s Day. just felt like people could relate vs having a relationship or not. I just would always try to keep songs relatable!

Tabaris: I love hearing what producers send me so please reach out haha. I honestly will play the beat for maybe 15 to 30 seconds. After that I will upload it and just take whatever route I’m feeling at the moment. The beat definitely has to put me in a mind set.
