In an interview with "Whatz Really Hood DVD", he was asked about his distinctive style of rap, and he responded with,
"Yeah, well I mean of course I was influenced by a wide range of artists in many genres. But aside of Em and Bis, it wasn't until I watched the Wu-Tang Clan "Triumph" music video that really made me want to do rap. It was so raw and in your face, I mean you know, I said to myself that this is what I want to do."
