Boston Culture: Being from the 508 area, has that allowed you to make the music you create today? Where exactly were you raised?
Growing up in the 508 I’ve had my fair share of experiences. One of my first ever studios in the 5 is at Ladder Dream Studios over on Dover Street. I was raised all over Mass. My Grandmother lives in Roxbury, I was born on the Southside of Brockton and spent most my years growing up with my grandmother in Roxbury. I went to school and shit out in Taunton MA though.
Boston Culture: Does living in Boston give you a different perspective on the music scene?
Overall Boston rap is divided, you got the high level rappers and the drill rappers and it shows. All levels of rap are solid though cuz that’s the culture.
Boston Culture: Where did you get your name?
A lot of people actually ask me this. The first four letters are for where I’m from Mass, the “iahh” part stands for I am holt. Holt being my last name, I think identity is everything.
Boston Culture: What is the meaning behind the song, Letter to Griffin?
Letter To Griffin was inspired by my dawg who recently passed, after he died I was really in a bad place and once I heard that beat shit just clicked.
