  1. How did you come up with your artist name?

“Son Kuma — Kuma means Bear in Japanese and my birth name is Barron. This bear was my English nickname and Kuma was my nickname in Japanese class. So I figured Kuma would be a good rap name.”

  1. What inspired you to start making music?

“Maybe when I heard ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ by Kendrick Lamar. I’m not sure if this is the exact event that triggered my creative endeavors; but I do remember this album having a huge impact on how I continued to move thereafter. I wanted to start taking my efforts more seriously.”

  1. Who is your dream feature you would like to have on one of your songs?

“I feel like Kendrick is the obvious answer but the not-so-obvious dream feature would be Wizkid. He’s too fire”

  1. What is the favorite song you have recorded?

“My favorite song I’ve recorded hasn’t come out yet. It’s called “Lightweight” and it’s on the album” 

  1. Do you have any upcoming/unreleased music dropping soon?

“Debut Album dropping June 18th!! Don’t miss it fam. Its hella diverse and tells a story 🤟🏽”
