Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, Pepper Boy is the definition of “real.” With a no-frills lyrical style, he is perhaps best known for the sincerity in his tone and the intensely personal nature of his music.
1. Talk to us a little bit about where you're from, your upbringing, and influences that push you to make the type of music that you make.
Born and raised ..in central little rock..thats like the middle of the city..right in the Heart of it-----my upbringing was normal family life until I hit junior high school; thats when street life kinda started for me---- my influence on my music is basically me going thru stages of life..at first I was more into gansta rap shooter up bang bang..and as I got older the music would SLOWLY turn positive at times.
2. Explain to us how the Lil B cover came about, how you felt, and what you were thinking when it happened.

3. With all that you've accomplished, what do you think holds you back from getting that massive recognition you deserve?
Idk man..I make beautiful, positive, and rare music..no one has broke out from my city yet..its confusing some times..but I don't let it get me down..I stay making records for my fans..;sum times I think the industry afraid to take a chance wit me and my state.
