1. He likes his music described as “new Memphis.”

He used to call it “Memphis trap white-boy music.”

He blew up on the platform while in college.

3. The first two songs he ever recorded he used GarageBand.

Now he uses Logic.

He said “6’6” in a song because it flowed off the tongue better than “6’7.”

8. He has no plans to slow down.

He’s really been enjoying being creative and making music right now.

It’s the longest album he’s ever made, and it’s nearly ready to come out.

11. Brendon Urie from Panic! at the Disco and Smash Mouth have both slid into his DMs.

Gordon Ramsay’s daughter also told him her dad is a big fan.
