Some interviews you realize this person is different, more than an artist. Sitting down with Is was extremely refreshing for me. One jewel I extracted from picking his brain is his outlook on pain and love, it’s fascinating to me. ” Pain and Love go hand and hand, pain tarnishes you, love cleanses you.

What’s the formula for greatness? Tireless work ethic, an unfulfilling appetite to feed a bottomless pit, also above all, the Mamba mentality to obliterate anything and anyone in your way to obtaining Greatness. Shout out Kobe! Is encompasses all of these facets. He’s ready to make his mark on the music industry, in one way or another.
