HHF: What would you like to gain in your career?

HHF: What do you think about today’s artists?

HHF: Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Staggz: In ten years I see myself owning and operating my own successful record label where I will be scouting raw unsigned hype such as myself and giving them opportunities that I was blessed to get from Hip Hop Forum and RAWR Radio. Salute…
