I’m a pretty egotistical guy, and I was like, “Damn, I look fresh.” I was like, “Yo, I look frizzy-fresh.” I was walking around that night, and when I get drunk I often get parts of songs stuck in my head, so in my head it just popped in somehow. “ I get my frizzy-fresh on, yes I do .” And I kept saying that over and over throughout the night; I don’t know where it came from. So after that I went into my homie Miles’s crib — shout out Felix Beats, he produced a ton of my stuff, that’s the homie right there — I went into his crib and I was like, “Yo Miles, I got the hook, man. Tell me you have a beat that bangs.” And it worked out perfectly. I just sat down and wrote those two verses in like 20 to 30 minutes.
Those verse aren’t my most impressive lyrically, but overall, the whole song — because it was so catchy and such a good beat, that’s the song that we decided to make the big single and make the big push for the video. I definitely think it was sort of a turning point in my career, but I tie that more to the Vindicated mixtape than just the song “Dude.” After I released Business as Usual I really feel like I had a breakthrough with the music I was making. I was just in a different place lyrically with my flow. That’s why I named the mixtape Vindicated because I think trying to be a rapper is the corniest thing in the world. People are like, “Yo Kam, why are you trying to rap?” Vindicated was my proof of here’s what I can do in my efforts to try and be a rapper. It definitely was a turning point, that video and that mixtape. I’ve been contacted by A&Rs from some of the biggest labels — Universal/Motown hit me up, a guy from Atlantic hit me up. I’m definitely trying to get recognized for the hard work that I’m putting in. I’m gonna try to keep working and building on that little buzz that I have now.
They weren’t hitting me up trying to sign me, they were just hitting me up to say, “Yo, we saw your video, we like what you’re doing.” Like I said, it got 80,000 views in the first month — which isn’t a huge number. You look at someone like Mac Miller, his videos get a million — Yeah, but for the hype that you got, 80,000’s pretty big. They’re saying, “Hey, cool video, keep up the hard work. We’re gonna keep tabs on you from now on.” So it’s not even a foot in the door — I guess maybe they’re looking through the peephole in the door, they finally see me. Here’s my top four, I think, in order: first of all, number one, Roc Nation, no question. Jay-Z’s the best MC of all time, and you also have J.Cole, who is one of my favorite rappers and another one of my biggest influences. You also have people like Jay Electronica, he’s the essence of hip-hop if you ask me. Kanye’s so amazing; Common’s so amazing; John Legend’s so dope; CyHi the Prince is so dope; Big Sean’s so dope. Number three, Young Money, because again, I’m a huge Drake fan, a huge Lil Wayne fan. I’m not the biggest Nicki Minaj fan, but everything she does is getting huge numbers. And then fourth, I’d have to say Maybach Music, probably. I’ve got a few different ideas about what I wanna do for my next two or three projects. I view mixtapes sort of like a checkpoint in video games because it’s your most recent reference point. If you die in a video game you go back to the last checkpoint, which is sort of like your most recent achievement in the game. Similarly, if someone unfamiliar with my music asks to hear my music, my most recent mixtape is a checkpoint of sorts in that I can show them how much I’ve achieved as a rapper.
