Who are your influences? What is some advice that has stuck with you?
I’m influenced by my parents, my mother is from Barbados, my father is from Trinidad. I also draw influence from my city, New York. I was born in Brooklyn, but I rep Hempstead, NY, where I started rhyming w/ SmooVth when we were youngins.
Musically I’m inspired by my team #TheWinners, which consists of SmooVth from Hempstead NY, Rozewood from Amityville, NY now residing in LA, Sean Rosati from Boston, Marvelous Mag from Brownsville Brooklyn now residing in Miami, JuneLyfe from Boston, our producer Giallo Point from the UK, AL Divino from Lawrence Mass, Sage Infinite from New Jersey, and El Ay from the UK.
I remember hearing Russell Simmons say “Use your f***in’ resources.” I ran with that, applied it to my life.

The cadre of lyricists known as #TheWinners have changed their line-up over the years but the most recent recruits were two highly underrated MCs outta Murda Mass: Al Divino and JuneLyfe. Divino is a Lawrence native, while June is a tried-and-true Bostonian.
The point is that, as we’ve been telling you every chance we get, Massachusetts seems to be becoming the new mecca for hardcore hip-hop.
Now, although Divino left the crew because he wasn’t content playing the back and paying dues, June has humbly held it down while the more established members get their shine on.

#TheWinners are a New York-based crew comprised of the likes of SmooVth, Hus Kingpin, Rozewood and Rosati. SmooVth and Hus Kingpin, who together form the group Tha Connection, have been releasing music for over a decade and the roster as a whole is a well-established one who specialise in sample-heavy boom bap production and intricately crafted street narratives. They continue to release music at a relentless pace but remain pigeonholed to a small corner of the hip-hop community.
With Hus set to release his much-anticipated Dreams Of Sade album perhaps 2018 may see them gain more acclaim…
