How did you come up with your stage name?
I played ball and I was pretty cold with it so they used to call me “BNASTY” for professional purposes. We just dropped the ‘Y’ because I still feel like I’m cold at what I do musically.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
When I dropped my debut single entitled “l Lose It” back in 2014 with that brought in a lot of engagement and I realized that I was building something real. I wanted to grow my fanbase by being consistent.
A group of loyal fans and supporters is what gives me the motivation to keep going and keep turning it up a notch. They’ve come to expect quality music from me and that’s what I want to provide so I do the best I can to remain consistent and drop new music, vibes, sounds, and all of that.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I get some of my musical influence from classic artists like Nelly, Ludacris, and 50… New age Artist: I would have to see Roddy Ricch, Gunna, and Lil Baby & PnB.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
Drippy Love came from a Series of “Drippy” Complicated relationships from my personal experiences. Being through relationships can come with ups and downs.
I just found a Wavy Vibe to express what a lot of people go through every day with relatable situations and incorporated that into my music. I still believe we can learn from our past experiences as men especially and be hurt and even vulnerable but all the while show love and appreciation for when you do come across a good woman.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
Of course, I always maximize my ability to stand out, be heard, and be seen however I’m not going to knock my hustle and feel like even in this crowded industry I can be one of the best to ever do it if I stay consistent and hard working with a good team around me.
What are your plans for the near future?
My plans are simple which include continuing to build an organic fanbase of loyal supporters who appreciate and like the music that I make. That I keep it 100 by being authentic and hopefully network with some other great hip-hop and music artists.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Oh definitely. First and most importantly, God for the gift and allowing me to do what I’m good at and being able to create from this passion. Secondly, everyone who supports me and works with me.
How can fans find you?

What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
A few jewels that I’ve learned along the way is that you have to give this your all. Focus on being as authentic and as original as possible to avoid comparisons and remain consistent. In due season you’ll see results. Keep grinding.
