“I used to feel like I was in a box. Even though that box was cool and successful, I didn’t feel like I had a voice. ‘Cause I don’t rap, I don’t sing. Basically, whoever I’m with, what they say is my voice in a way. People can interpret beats in any way, but with lyrics, it is pretty straightforward,” he says, after experimenting with his voice in some of his latest sounds. “It’s been hard building things back up, but I’m in a way better mental place. I can do whatever I want; I feel free.”
