The Bay Area’s own Symba stops by Power 106 for our exclusive Now You Know series. Speaking on his roots, he states:
“Being from the Bay keeps me grounded. Especially being out here in LA, ’cause you’ll get sidetracked by a lot of things going on. You’ll wanna join a lot of things that basically you shouldn’t be involved in. Being from the Bay will let you know like, ‘Nah, I can’t do that. This ain’t what I come from.'”
Speaking on his biggest influences, he states: “In life, I gotta roll with Dame Dash, Master P, J. Prince. I like independent people. People who came from the bottom with their own people and did their own thing. Started their companies from the streets. My musical influences would be 50 Cent, Ja Rule — as crazy as that is — Fabolous, Mase, Nelly. I like the player shit, the shit that the females like. That’s what I always grew up on.”
