During the live Q&a, Jevon Doe summed up their sound, eventually boiling to four words.
"Has South in it," he says. "Has that H-town in it. You could feel from where I am. You can see what I'm sayin'. But it is also global. I feel that it is very global. I feel as if my voice attracts them, so I feel like what I'm talking about also attracts. I think that there are a lot of people in the world who just want to hear someone talk about real shit, but the cool sound of it. But really cool. So I think that's really what my sound is generated: H-Town, South, global, great."
Jevon also the credits from a fellow H-town legend, as one of two artists that ignited his desire to rap.
"The first artist that I really began to taste it was Z-Ro. He is from Houston. From there, it was Lil Wayne. The two of them there really got me wanting to rap. And then on top of that, it was Drake, Childish Gambino, Big Sean, for that type of artists that really kept me trying to get it."
