I went one on one with him in a hip hop Q/A to get a better idea of his love for the art
Who are your top hip hop influences?
What is hip hop in your Words? Why?
A playground because I can basically do what you want now. Hip hop is my canvas and I love to highlight my feelings in every track I do!
What’s your hip hop origins?
I was definitely listening to Hotboys (Lil Wayne, Juvenile, BG etc) and Lil Bow Wow. That raunchy music hit my soul and definitely has an influence on my sound!
What does your name mean?
I’m tattooed from I head to toe since I was young. When I started rapping (Yung Inkky). I love tattoos, besides music, they are another way for me to tell my story!
Artist you style yourself after?
Nobody right now but Lil Baby style motivates me. Using his melodic methods but adding in my own style is what I have been working on recently!
Three quotes about hip hop?
“Be the best at your craft”
Influenced by the likes of Lil Durk, Dababy, Roddy Ricch and Lil Wayne, Inkky makes music that not only makes you feel better but also makes you think about improving yoounur life in the right way. He is an amazing father to five children, a Nike and Ethika fanatic (The latter whom he has big plans for the future with), loves seafood, likes getting tattooed as his moniker suggests, and has plans of becoming not only an award-winning recording artist but also a multiple business owner which includes a record label.
