I am a visual artist.  I paint, sketch, and draw.  I usually do landscapes and when I am done, I feel like a little kid.  I look at my work and say, “Wow!  Look at that!”

I am also a writer and a rapper.  I have been doing this since I was seven.  For me, writing and rapping is a way out of reality.  I am surrounded by gang and violence, and who wants to be around that? I can express myself in my writing and my songs.  I love that people listen to them and enjoy them.  It makes me feel like what I am putting out there matters.

Chicago is very nice but you really have to be careful.  But it gives me many ideas about the type of art that ������������������������I want to make. I’ve connected with the way Studs Terkel gets everyone’s opinion on a subject.
