So, what’s up Leitroleion? What’s on your mind? What's good just vibin thinking of a way I can be great and do great things.
Tell us everything about your track ‘Lil Ghettos Boi’s. The track is a take on Donny Hataway's 1972 release of Little Ghetto Boy which has the same message as then. My take is a fresh modern spin on what's happening in the ghetto still to this day. It's one of those tracks that give the youth hope so they don't have to follow the norms of the Ghetto.
When did you start writing music? I have been writing music for over 25 years but taking it seriously over the last 8 years.

What are your hopes for your future? I hope to one day not only help but also inspire millions to come together for a better way for all of us.
