You just released a new single “Get Em Up (Birthday Vibe)” for the New Year, what was the inspiration behind the song?
The song “Get Em Up (Birthday Vibe)”, featuring Fatman Scoop, is a fun birthday song that everyone can have a good time dancing to. It’s a song for all ages, and it’s a song to bring everyone together. My inspiration for the song is putting the fun back into music, nowadays music isn’t fun anymore, and I’m here to save today’s music.
How did Fatman Scoop get involved? What was it like working with him?
Working with Fatman Scoop is amazing; he’s very professional and very humble. He’s the type of person that when you work with him, his good spirits will rub off on you. He’ll guide you in the right direction and make sure your song sounds right. Plus, I have been a fan of his for so many years, so I was very excited to work with him. Fatman Scoop got involved with the song through my Son Oun-p, they were in the studio together, and my son played the song for him; he loved it. He didn’t believe I was Oun-p’s father; that’s what really made him want to get on the song. The words from Fatman Scoop, “This is not a young man’s game, this is a good man game,” that’s exactly what I am a Good Man. Fatman Scoop is someone you have to appreciate in the music business.
You have been in the rap game for a long time. Why was this song so special to you?
This song is special to me because of the good vibe that’s coming with it, and for a person like Fatman Scoop to hear something special about this song that made him want to get on it. I love to see people dancing and having fun, and I’m more than happy to see them dancing to my song, and that’s special for me.

What else is coming for you in 2022?
