“I’ve done a million of them, you’re going to hear too many next year, it’s not a secret, there are features with Grammy winners and all that,” he said.

“I’ve never actually approached people before, I think that’s what happens when you’re original and real, you get me? There’s going to be an attraction when your style is clear.”
