I wasn’t the man. Well wait, hold on up I was! (haha). With the singing, when I was in the group with me and my brother, I can’t lie we were popular. It was an all boys school, so let me tell you the dopest thing about that school… We had dances that you had to come with your ID, only dudes from the school could get in, but we had girls from ALL the other schools coming to our dance. Man, it was crazy! The ratio felt like 11:1 [girls to boys]. Let me tell you what I used to do though. For lunch money, with the athletes or whoever, we would do 3 way calls, I would tell them call me and then call your girl, tell her you are about to sing for her. They would put their phone on mute and I would start singing! I used to sing for girls mommas, whoever, just to get cats some play. I used to get my lunch money like that. There were these twins, they ran track, mind you they were twins, so I had to give them separate voices. So I did a falsetto for one and a regular baritone voice for the other. The craziest thing I found out was, (because I would be like, “What happens when the girls see you in person and they be like ‘sing for me’. What do you tell them?”) they were using my excuses! Like, ‘Yo my vocal chords feel real raspy, I don’t want to sing right now,’ or ‘I’m on a break’ … [laughter…] that was high school for me.
