Higher Frequency: What are some of the things to you that are most challenging being an artist from Atlanta and making your moves thru the city as an entertainer, are there any challenges like things you may attempt to accomplish but there’s things in the way of you getting to those goals and ideas?
KD Moneyy: The most challenging thing in Atlanta is building a fan base because the culture has changed.

Higher Frequency: About the new single “Tesla” let’s talk about this for a second. What does this song mean to you and what is it about exactly?
KD Moneyy: The song Tesla means the world to me and I feel like it’s the song that’s going to put me on the charts. I initially made the song for people running from law and because of the new DA in Atlanta who’s really trying to crack down on rappers.
Higher Frequency: Radio promotions or Online promotions which one of these platforms you feel may show you the most support right now?
KD Moneyy: Really I have received an equal amount of both radio and online support, but if I had to choose one I would say online because that’s how more people are able to get introduced to my music and brand and it’s all pretty cool because at the end of the day one more new follower and fan helps me and the music that I am putting out to reach even more listeners and as I continue to see my Spotify numbers increase it helps me to realize and appreciate the growth.
