What's up Jay Mayne, what's new? 
Just kickin' it, I've been workin' on new music. Also tryna break into the production world. 

Why now for this Seahorse show?
I feel like the city needed this show. It's been a minute since ODOD touched the people. Also my boy Jason Wadley is moving so we had to show him love. Can ya feel what I'm saying.

What's the hottest track so far this year?
We only early in yet. I'm still listening to Yo Gotti's CM8 and Freddie Gibbs (Shadow Of A Doubt). Saw a dope Uncle Murda freestyle though (haha) that count? (Editor's Note: Yup).  

What's your favourite blunt wrap?
I went hard with Swishers, but they took them and Pom Pom's off shelves. Found a plug, tho.

New Yeezy Boosts or new Jordan 4s
Neither. Nike SB Stefan Janoski's or some dunks.

Young Thug or Rich Homie Quan?
Both got joints. Young Thug has more plays.

Cool Ranch Doritos or Ketchup Doritos?

Cool Ranch but I can never finish a full bag. Ketchup (is) ill though.

What's your favourite Snoop song?
Prolly "G'z Up, Hoes Down" bonus on Doggystyle.

What's your second favourite Snoop song? 
All of Doggystyle and The DoggFather. 

What skate clips have you been grinding lately?
I watch skateboarding every day so it's hard to pick a clip.
But Daewon Song just did some next-level stuff.

What do you usually drink in the club? 
Usually I drink water in the club. Anything else, they might catch me off my pivot. #ChopTrees.
