TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY: Wassup Major!
MAJOR: Hey Ms. Tiffany, how you doin?
TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY: I’m doin’ great! How have you been?
MAJOR: I’ve been good, just working on my music.
TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY: That’s good! Okay lets get down to it. How did you get started as a rapper? And how long have you been doing it?
MAJOR: Since I was young, about 9 years old. My uncle had a studio and I used to go down there and listen to him create music. Music runs real deep in our family and I just figured I would see what I could do with rapping. Also seeing rappers on TV and on YouTube just made me say, “Yeah…that’s the life I wanna live.”
TIFFANY LASHONDA RILEY: You currently have the hit single Money Dance. Tell me how the song came about and who were some of the people who worked on the song.
MAJOR: Been seeing a lot of different dances in the clubs. I wanted a song about people who are out here grindin’ and getting money. T-Rex did the beat for the song and of course I wrote the song.

MAJOR: I’m still working on my first album, and it’s still untitled, but I’ve been doing promotions, shows, and staying in the studio.
