Q: Where do you attend college currently?
A: I go to the University of Miami, but I'm in New York for meetings and to go to the studio. To be home!
Q: You're majoring in music. Can you tell me a little bit about the program at the University of Miami?
A: The program is called the "M.A.D.E." program which is musicianship, artistry, development and entrepreneurship. You get a little bit of every aspect of the industry.
Q: How is it balancing a social life, friends (at home and at school) and then music?
A: It's extremely difficult... I'm not going to lie. I think there's a lot of sacrifices that are made, but at the end of the day, this is what I want to do. It's kind of cool because my experiences in school contribute to my music and vice versa. I love it. It's a great experience.
