As a kid from Trenton, who or what inspired you to start making music?

Was there ever a particularly verse or song that you wrote that made you think “Damn I can really go somewhere with this rap thing” ?
Honestly I wouldn’t say particular verse or song but I had got that feeling that I could go somewhere with it when a youngboy around my way told me my music saved them. I asked him what he meant and he told me they had got into a car chase and while they were on it they threw on my “First Day Out” and he said once he put it on as his chase music they ended up getting low from the boys. Once I heard that I was like damn these niggas believe in me fr.
