When you first debuted before the public, we see you as the son of a rap mogul, but you have made a path of your own. Was it hard making your own path separate from that of your dad?
I’ve always had a strong mind frame, I was prepared by one of the most successful people in the business my dad. You are so talented, you’re a rapper, actor, basketball player, entrepreneur, fashion designer, big brother and model which do you enjoy more? I can’t choose one over the other I love it all.
We see you’ve taken a love for designing. Tell me about your clothing Brand ROME EVERYTHING, and what’s inspired your line.
It’s fashion business, I want the number one boys line, I’ve always loved fashion because being in the public people always paid attention to what I was wearing. Fashion is a lifestyle now. My line is young and fresh like a young Versace. It’s a lifestyle brand.
How would you describe your personal style?
Personal style is everything, I like to be laid back I love joggers and a fresh black t-shirt. I also love dressing up like James Bond, brings back a 1970’s feel.
Any new music?
New music coming back full throttle, I have a new group Money Mafia, I’m president of No Limit, I’m bringing back real. My new song “Till the Club Close”- it’s a love song but you can bounce and dance to it. I’m excited about new talent I’m working with Young June an artist from Pittsburg who was working with Jay-z. I’m working with this producer Black n Mild. My dad’s a legend and I’m feeding off his knowledge.
Can you talk about a fan encounter that completely took you by surprise?
My fans have a lot of fun with me. One time at a grocery store, I heard a fan plotting about grabbing my ass and I could hear everything. I walked up to her, told her to grab my ass, and she ran away and I told her to come back. We know it’s coming. We are all human.
What do you do on your chill days, when you aren’t working?
I’m a chill person, I enjoy working, I love movies, I love watching 1950’s movie classics like “Grease” and I love working out.
Are there any new projects you’re working on that you can talk about?
Coming up with Rome Everything glasses, swim, candles, and smell goods. I have a few shows. Me and Angela Simmons have a show and me and Master P have one. I’m always looking for new talent, I’m working hard with Rome Everything, it’s a lifestyle.
