Queen’s is up Next though; every other borough had its go around & now it’s time for the city torch to land in my towns.”

Thirty Six Seven: ”What has been the hardest obstacle for you, as far as being a producer?”

Thirty Six Seven: “It’s forever long live rocky! - who was bro to you & what was his impact?”

CallUpTay: “Man Rocky; that was my dawg.. I can’t lie he was a true talent. He was like my version of a Lil Snupe - he could freestyle all day long if you’d let him; & stay on topic while he’s doing it. His life was tragically cut short in August of 2015. shit sent me into depression but I’m here making sure I make this work.. I’m doing it for him."

Thirty Six Seven: “What’s your favorite part of being a producer my guy?“

CallUpTay: “My favorite thing about producing is the fact that you can bend sounds to ANY creation you want it to be. I can literally rip up a sample & make it do what I want, or I can keep the essence of a sample & make people groove like it’s their first time hearing it, like I did in with LouGotCash on Tatii."
