The music community in Minneapolis is really incestuous so I've gotten the chance to work with a gang of people who have worked with Prince, Mint Condition, got to spend some time with Mujah Messiah, Atmosphere, P.O.S., Rhymesayers, a lot of poets around there.

My thesis in terms of all my art is finding the beauty in the ugly truth. Just find the beauty in realism and what's there.
