Today we’d like to introduce you to ATG 103.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I been through a lot of situations, everybody got different situations and just because I ain’t go through what the next person went through doesn’t mean what I went through isn’t shit you know. Excuse my language. My brother used to be in a rap group named Killin Spree and he was raw as hell so that’s what drove me to make songs and start putting my thoughts down on paper. I never wanted to be a rapper for real until later in my life it was just my passion hobby. I had a lot of different passions growing up. Eventually, around them, high school days is when my homeboys was coming to me telling me the songs I been making are really good, so that’s when the idea of a rapper started clicking in my head. Started dropping on SoundCloud and Facebook and getting feedback, people started to look at me as a rapper even though I still didn’t look at myself as one! After high school, I would drop songs still but I was focused on other things, mainly in the streets just doing what I’m doing. That led me to go through a turmoil of things in my life I would look at as a minor setback. Now we here present day and I’m dropping like never before, Apple Music, SoundCloud, and YouTube. I just dropped my new music video “AYE ZOE” which has 20k plus views. I’m one of those go getters, there Isn’t anything I see stopping me to reaching the top. I’m coming whether they like it or not.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Situations been real since day 1. I always had a hard-working momma. My mom is originally from Haiti and if you from South Florida you know how that go. Shit my mom been working all her life and still to this day! So I’m really trying to make something shake. Me and my siblings basically raised each other/ ourselves. My ol gurl was always at work trying to make ends meet. Growing up into a man, I faced my own struggles. There was a time I was hustling hard but sleeping in abandoned apartments! I faced betrayal, Jail, Street situations, family situations, all types of things. The struggle don’t do nothing but make me go harder. I got this fire passion inside of me to change my situation, make accomplishments, and just to overall go harder to get to bigger and better heights. So I commend the struggle cause it molded me into a solider.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I could be known for a number of things depending who you talk to. I’m a real musician though. It’s more than just about the money for me. I want the money that music brings, don’t get me wrong but I really want people listening to and enjoying my music. I’m most proud of me and who I am becoming. What sets me apart is everything about me. I can show you better than I can tell you.
What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
I love everything about the city to be honest. The good the bad, all of it. Everything about down here is just saucy. We different in everything we do.
