[CM]: How long have you been producing music?
[RJC]: I was introduced to music at an early age. I started playing the piano at the age of 10, and after learning how to play the piano I started going into composing my own music. I realized I could do that, so I just started writing and coming up with my own compositions.
[CM]: What artists have you worked with?
[RJC]: I enjoyed working with Lil Durk, had a chance to put in some work with Kelz, really enjoyed that.
[CM]: What was it like working in Atlanta?
[RJC]: Man, it was an experience, it was crazy. People in my city, Chicago, they love my music, but that came over time… A lot of people in the city wasn’t creating the sound that I was. So when I went to Atlanta and they heard my sound, I was only out there for about less than a month, and my name was buzzing all around there. I worked with 112, Gucci Mane, Future, and a few more.
