Darrell "Reezyree" Barnes was born in Chicago, Illinois on January 16, 1986. Not having a stable parental background throughout most of his life, he began expressing himself silently through music. "Not having both parents around at the same time I had to learn how to survive on my own; even when I was facing adversity from the street life." He was raised in Chicago on the Southside, 114th and Harvard and in a small city in Florida called Leesburg. During his 9th grade year at Leesburg High School, he moved back to Chicago and attended Du Sable High School where he earned his high school diploma.At the age of fourteen, he became a solo artist, mostly writing his rhymes. He started by conveying his emotions through his music, and then began battling between other rappers to help perfect his skills. This is when he was known to be called "Reezyree" in the hood. He moved back to Florida when he was older to hone his entire arsenal of tips through trial and error and help him become more versatile by observing southern rapper and their styles. Now, at the developmental stage of his career, at age twenty-Five, he has now been performing on stage for a little over five years. He has done several shows at a club called The Lounge in Orange Park, Florida and Elk's Lodge, Club E, Bill's Blues Bar and Exedus Lounge in Chicago.
