THEA: When I was about 11 years old I mostly listened to 50, Timbaland, Eminem and Alicia Keys. It wasn't until I was 14 that I discovered Jedi Mind Tricks, Nas, N.W.A, Biggie, Tupac and underground hip hop. The first time I heard "Is Happiness Just a Word" by Vinnie Paz, it felt like a wrecking ball hit my face and he's been my hero ever since. Artists that continue to inspire me are the same as the ones I discovered when I was 14 and I keep meeting artists that I feel inspired by. The lyrics are important to make me feel inspired by artists.
