6. What do you feel the music industry is lacking? Substance. The creativity is at a all time high I feel the new generation are coming in younger and younger with a different mindset and approach but they don't know hiphop. So their missing the point.
7. Tell me about your latest single? I recently put out a EP called "ForeverTime" on 9/11. Its really expressing the crabs in a bucket mentality. It goes deeper into consciousness with the song "ForeverTime" it expresses the purpose of life and love through two different people's eyes $

9. What area do you feel you should market more? Definitely visuals I need to shoot more videos take more pictures I haven't done so on purpose. Cause people will judge u by your appearance but know nothing about you.
10.How did you come up with this single/project? Any inspirations? It started out as just a song but as i continued writing it i started incorporating some of my experiences along with some other ppls experiences and it became a story.
11.What does your stage name mean? I've always been one of those ppl if it's hard and I'm struggling i don't want you to know that. I keep my composure. I always made things look easy. Like if I can do it you can do it.
12.Have you done any shows in the past and do you have any recent shows or tours coming up? I have done a few shows the one that stands out the most is the kodak show at the norva I was obviously lit and they kicked us out the norva before i could perform. My exact words "you telling me I'm to lit these ni**as got on ski masks" very memorable moment.
13.How do you describe your music to people? Different mix the 90's flow with the 2000's energy a little 80's concept A dab of soulful 60's&70's passion and you get ThaAlmightyeaze
14.How would you define the word “success”? Success is the outcome of your journey. You find your success by measuring your progress from where u started to your present.
15.Are you looking for an independent label deal or major label deal? (Why) I really want to stay independent for as long as possible b/c nobody wants to pay someone a portion of your earnings when you put in your all. I mean if a label offers me a deal they obviously see the potential and don't get me wrong I'll rather play for the Lakers than be a free agent
16.Have you created a career, marketing, or business plan? Not necessarily. I do have another MDMA_TV (Million Dollar Mind Association) we have idea after idea so definitely stay tuned in for that new Kerch coming for the winter "NOMiD" shirts are always for sell.
