Adams' mentor, New York rapper Mickey Factz, said the same thing, Miller said.
Even the idea of a successful album gets Adams excited. His music career is literally all he thinks about, he said.
When he’s in class at IU Kokomo, he’s thinking about lyrics and about recording. When he’s not in class, he’s writing music, listening to himself perform, recording and promoting himself on social media. Often he’s still up at 4 a.m. working.
There’s no time to stop, though.
“The moment I take a break, someone else is going to take my spot,” he said. “I refuse to let that happen. There is no Plan B for me. My Plan B is to make my Plan A work.”
