He liked hip-hop, rap and R&B his entire life. He also likes to hear other types of music to give him other ideas to change it up and create different styles of songs and lyrics he creates. He loves to listen to Kanye West's music and he revolves his self around him in his own music a little bit and is his favorite rapper. He also likes Lupe Fiasco and Common because of their metaphors and intelligence in their lyrics. Kid Cudi, Drake Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne are at the top of his list also.

He loves to do what he does best and loves making music for people. Everyday he's on his computer for hours doing music and trying to become better at it. His sister Queen Cee, who is a huge R&B singer in Hamilton, inspires him to continue to do music and helps him realize that he can help make his family have a better life. His sister won R&B/Soul Recording of the Year at the Hamilton Music Awards in 2008, which inspires him to have as much and more success than his sister. His brother-in-law is also a hip-hop artist and his father is a DJ, teaching EJ more about sampling and vinyl’s to help expand him in the music industry.
