CM: Right out of the gate, you caused massive waves while you were just a teenager. Dropping your hit single “wet” which premiered on MTV, VH1, CMT, and BET and gained so much attention. How did you feel as all that unfolded?
AB: To see myself on such platforms was huge! I was young and just starting, and of course being on TV back in the day was so impressive! We weren’t so big on streaming services.
CM: At what age did you realize that you were destined to be great and what are some of the key steps you took to get to where you are today?
AB: I was just a little boy. My great grandfather was a musician back in Honduras and so was my great uncle. When I was a boy, I sang in churches and my father was an emcee, so I always wanted to be here on this stage as a musician.
CM: I know you deeply value inspiring others through your story. What are some of the biggest hardships you faced while on your music journey?
AB: My biggest hardships were dealing with naysayers and people “hating on me” of course. I have to fight through but it’s never easy for anyone to deal with negativity.
CM: Is “Charity” something that you feel strongly about and if so, how do you think we can inspire more people to do their part and help contribute to charity worldwide? What role does music have in charity awareness?
AB: Yes, charity is important to me especially since I didn’t always have it easy in life. Music has a huge role to play in all aspects of life including charity.
CM: Who are some of the musicians you felt most inspired by as a child and who inspires you the most today? On the same note, what was the creative process behind your hit “listening to Drake”?
AB: My favorites growing up were always Kanye, J Cole, Nas, Jay Z, Drake. And listening to Drake my guy Synthsei made a beat with a loop on it that sounded like Drake. I guess it wasn’t lol, but I structured the song around that thought lol.
CM: What message would you like to share with aspiring musicians around the world?
AB: Simple answer, don’t give up no matter what happens!Tweet
