I grew up in NorthSide, Pittsburgh where he was first introduced to music by his father who was a drummer and his mother who was a poet. Ive always loved music from Tribe Called Quest to Wu-Tang to Jimmy Hendrix. I joined the Marines at 18 there for it put a halt on my music due to constant trips to Iraq and Afghanistan. Eventually i decided to get out after 4 years to pursue music as it was my real passion and i truly wanted to focus on just music. As i got back home i got into producing before actually recording and writing, so I've only been rapping for a year and a majority of the time producing.
