Colfax on the beginning of his career:
I started making music when I was 15. I didn’t take it seriously until I was 19. When I initially arrived in Phoenix, I met one of my close friends Marquel and that was around 15 years old. He also made music and we kind of just clicked from that point. We used to give each other homework assignments to make different types of music. We always pushed ourselves and would go from making a song without cursing, writing strictly hooks, songs structured with a chorus, etc. His father was Iroc Daniels who worked with a number of people in the industry from DJ Quik, 2 Chainz, Corey Gunz, etc. Being around Marquel and Iroc growing up, it really put things into perspective for me that being an artist wasn’t too far fetched. Not because of his status, but being able to see someone else do it and make a career out of it. It wasn’t necessarily “impossible”. I genuinely love creating content. I started to get a response on my music via soundcloud and I had released my first project, ‘Mile High State of Mind’ which got a lot more traction than I expected. At that point I was already in a relationship with music as I was creating content but after that I fell in love and I’m still working now to pursue my passion.
