[With hip-hop heads going crazy for his “Nasty Freestyle” anthem, Texas native T-Wayne talks to SOHH about his close-knit bond to “Flicka Da Wrist” hitmaker Cheddar Da Connect.]

Me and Chedda Da Connect are like brothers. Chedda took me off the streets when I was like 15 or 16. I was a young age but I didn’t have anybody.

It was just me and my little homeboy driving around in the car, trying to make it. Chedda had been watching me for a long time. One of my home boys that had been shot and killed and Chedda was like, “Man, you can’t be in the streets like that.” He had took me in because we had been sleeping in the car and he was like, “You should just come down to Houston and focus on music.”

So he took me in and really helped me with my whole music career. We’re like real-life brothers, not real, but just really close.

It’s a blessing just to see him with “Flicka Da Wrist” because he deserves it and I deserve what I’m getting. It’s all we ever wanted, just to get somewhere in music.

He works hard and pushes me. He could have put out music a long time ago but he’s been pushing me for years.

I feel like he deserves to get where he’s at right now and I deserve to get where I’m at.

Everyday is a blessing to see both of us successful right now.
