What is your name and what city do you rep? I go by the name of Fonzo W and I rep, Alexandria, Va.

What is unique about you and your music?
Ive been told I have a different sound and I also like to talk about things that aren't "popular".So while someone else is talking about having beef or murdering someone, I am talking about preventing beef and going to school and making a better way for yourself.

What shaped your music? What shaped my music was : What I have seen, where I grew up and where I am going. I care a lot about my future.

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally? I realized it when people kept telling me that I have a gift, and that they love my lyrical content. Also,the reaction I would get at open mic nights as well. The messages I get from fans keep me going and make me think to myself, "maybe I really do have a gift".

What type of music do you listen to? I listen to all genres of music. I love music as a whole. I listen to everything from Kenny G all the way to Lecrae.

Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist? Joyner Lucas is the most undervalued music artist. His lyrical content, story telling, hooks, melodies and how he puts a song together is nothing short of brilliant, yet I don't hear him on my local radio station. Its crazy to me. He has music talent out this world and yet undervalued.

Who would you collab with out of any Artist or Producer? If i could collab with any artist, it would be J. Cole. I feel like we talk alot about the same topics, he is just more well known than I am. He talks that "real life" stuff and I do as well. I also really like Kehlani, from her flow to how her voice sounds.

What ignites your writing & creative juices? Life. I look around and I see things always going on, and my mind has a lot of things running through it all day. So I use these thoughts and I put it on paper. I just hope one day millions of people can hear it. My wedding vows got some love. One site shared them and I got over 27m views, but the real messages are in my songs.

Success to you is… Changing lives through music. The more people that hear the message I have, the better. I will feel like I have success, when I can get kids to get out of the streets and go to school. When I can see less violence because of my music. When I feel like I am helping make the world a better place.

What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help an artist starting out? Quality over quantity. Take your time. If you have to re-record a song 30x, then thats what needs to be done. Every thing you do will NOT be dope. You need friends that will tell you the honest truth about your product.

Any upcoming projects or tracks you are apart of? I am always working on songs, but I have a song where I mention the Ball Family. The song is called Duerme...It means "He Sleeps" in Spanish. People slept on them and now they are laughing there way to the bank. People criticized Lavar Ball, but I have I have a lot of respect for him. His brand, how he conducts his business and how he pushes his sons are beautiful and you can see why they have and will continue to be successful. I also have a music video that is out against murder. Its entitled " Broad Day". All I read about is murders that happen in Chicago, Baltimore, and Southeast DC and If I can reach them before the police or the coroner, I can maybe help prevent another young black male in prison or another mother burying her son.

Where do we find you music / social media?
