Klay Dot: I am a rap recording artist/songwriter with no genre of music; I just love to make great music that the world can relate too.
3 Voices: What inspired to you to become a rap artist? Who are artists that have influenced your music career?
Klay Dot: Well about 4 years ago I attended an open mic but I was just “playing around” but a couple of songs in I seen that the crowd love my style and delivery, so I just ran with it and been taking the music more serious. My big influence and mentor is the “KING” Drake! Drake has taught me a lot through his music, personal life and business decision. Now Jay-z and Kanye West is also up there as well but I just can relate to Drizzy more.

3 Voices: You were a part of a music group called Liberti Movement, where you all managed to audition for the X-Factor and made it to the next stage of the process. What was the experience like? What was one thing you learned about the music industry from the X-Factor?
Klay Dot: Horrible, the music industry is full of politics but I understand business so I just choose to focus on making great music and building strong relationship with people in my music career. The Show X Factor was horrible because what they showed on camera is one thing but behind the scenes is another thing.
