Raver Mag. had an opportunity to interview with MK after his MainStage set at Imagine Music Festival, this is what he shared up with us.
RM: When did you know that you wanted a career in music?
MK: My advice for the up-and-comers would be to not try to sound like someone else. It’s hard now with the young kids because they see who’s popular, they go home and try to make something like them. I think that that’s a really bad idea.
