Q: How do you write? Do you write lyrics first and find a beat, or do you find the beat first and then create lyrics? Would you be interested in doing a short interview?

A: So I usually do a little bit of both. It really just depends on the song and what it needs. I tend to write a skeleton of the song and with maybe a verse or chorus then I'll show the other guys and we take it from there. We would love to do an interview. What would it be for?
