Interviewer: Give us a brief of your background.
Ortega: I’ve been working on music since I was 10 years old when my mom bought me a karaoke machine and I started recording freestyles on Cassette Tapes. It was once I got into the whole party scene when I was around 14 began to throw house parties and making money then I started to emerge as a Hip Hop artist by releasing music by performing them at my house parties. I had major labels offering me deals but I was just too young & hard-headed that I rejected all the offers and stopped making music as I went back to being a student-athlete & started to chase my dreams of being a professional soccer player. Once I achieved playing college and receiving a scholarship out in Kansas I got back into music since my college career came to an end as my transcripts fucked me over & was ineligible to play losing my scholarship and just leaving soccer and college behind... Now I’m set to release 3 projects in 2020 & a bunch of singles so I’m excited to be back in the game and ready to take over it too.
