Azazuz, tell us a little more about how you first got into music!
My father was a traveling gospel musician, so I grew up around some form of music!
My sister was big into poetry and hip hop.
She introduced me to the world of rap.
During middle school, I acted as a hype man during a record label audition.
I enjoyed the experience and pursued my own musical career.
My career exploded when I transitioned to florida after high school.

You have a giant influence across TikTok! Tell us a little more about how your music went viral on TikTok!
My music went viral on tiktok from my promotion of my popular single "Onlyfans" with encouraged sex workers worldwide to get their hustle on.
Women felt comfortable using it because the song was helping bring money to their table.
Shortly after, I had other songs [Reaper, Issa Crit, Patty cake or pat a cake] get popular on tiktok.
It benefitted the creators more than me because there are women that used my audio without tagging me and the video hit within the hundreds of thousands in views and comments.
What would you say to any aspiring artists/influencers who look up to you?
Invest in yourself and don't get so lost in the thought or art unless you are doing this for fun.
Entertainment is still a business at the end of the day, and any business that is going to thrive needs a constant source of income.
Our job is to entertain others, not entertain ourselves.
Make products that can be used in multiple situations and not just as leisure listening.
Do you have anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you?
I have two new songs titled, "Corpse's Bride" [prod by beat demons who is credited for work with bad bunny, 6ix9ine, azazus and more], and "Me All Black".
Corpse's bride is a follow up to my halloween single, "Reaper" which is about things that go bump in the night.
"Me All Black" is a tribute to the Black Panther film.
