What do you love/loathe most about the holidays?
Definitely getting presents, getting money from family. That’s popping. Why would you hate anything about the holidays? It’s a happy time. You get to see your family, that’s popping.

What’s your gift-giving style? Personalized presents, or a Starbucks card for everyone? 
I give people money. Nah, weed. Definitely. Cause you can share that. It’s a gift that we share, you feel me?

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?
My drumset. My father bought it for me, probably like, how old was I? Like 12. I had that red drumset since I was 12. I got it for Christmas and my birthday, cause my birthday is the day before Christmas. So I was set, didn’t need shit else.

What’s the worst gift you’ve ever received?

Some girl bought me a fuckin’ Aeropostale white short sleeve polo. I still got it to this day, that shit is yack. Never wore it. I don’t think I’ll ever wear it, ever. That’s outta pocket.

If you could ask for anything this year (and money is no object) what would you ask for?
I want to buy a sprinter. A big ass sprinter, the Benz sprinter. I would deck that out, 15-passenger swag. For me and my friends, we riding. Gotta have the big system in there.

What is your favorite holiday tradition that you share with friends or family?
I guess dinner, we don’t really do too much. We used to do big dinners.

What’s your favorite holiday snack or food?
Candied Yams. Them shits is ultimate.

Without looking it up, what are the ingredients in eggnog?
Umm, I don’t even know. What’s in eggnog? Milk? Some type of like, St. Ides swag. Milk and some eggs, mad eggs. I don’t know. That shit get you fucked up though. It could be spoiled milk.



Any idea how you will spend New Year’s Eve this year?
We may be doing a big ass show this year for New Year's. Can’t talk too much about it yet though.

If you could be any character from a holiday movie, who would you be and why?
Hmm… The Nightmare Before Christmas guy, the skeleton, what’s his name? Jack Skeleton. That movie was hard.

If you could plant a New Year’s kiss on your dream crush, who would that be and why?
Wow, y’all getting crazy. I don’t know. I know who I want to say but I don’t know if it’s outta pocket. I think I would want to kiss Paige Hurd from Everybody Hates Chris. She’s bad.

What was your proudest moment from this past year?
It’s been so many. It’s crazy, there was a lot of them. Opening up for Miguel. We did a whole little run of shows at the end of the year that was wavy.

What are you looking forward to most about 2013?
Making more music. I want to go to L.A. next year, play some shows out there. Going overseas too, traveling with the band and shit. Mad shit. What is in eggnog… I’m still thinking about that. I can’t front I’m looking it up now. Brandy, whiskey, bourbon. Aight, I didn’t know it was that serious. But yeah, word.
