“I like to write real and honest music, in the hopes of connecting with people that have been through similar situations that I have been through. With ‘SIR’, I wanted to show my supporters where I'm at and where I aim to go, so when O12 sent me the beat, I thought it was the perfect canvas to open up about this important stage in my life and share my growing pains with listeners”.
