Born in Torreón, Mexico, I moved to Los Angeles, California, when I was little. I lived there a few years before I moved once again to my current home of Garden City, Kansas. Ever since I was little I've wanted to make music, I've been in several music classes and even play the violin. I started producing in 2009 but really got into it in 2010 when I also started writing lyrics. I used to listen to mainstream Hip-Hop but I started listening to older music after I heard Doggystyle and The Chronic. Soon I'd be listening to Illmatic, Ready to Die, It Takes a Nation, 36 Chambers, etc. My music taste reflects in my music heavily. In 2011 I recorded my first song "First 2 Bomb" over a Tupac beat. In early 2012 I started recording sessions with two of my friends called Freestyle Fridays. After putting out a mixtape, we disbanded due to school and other commitments. I decided to take the opportunity to put out a solo mixtape and work on making instrumentals. In summer of 2012 I took a trip to Chicago and it changed my life, I saw a lot of things, met a lot of people, and took on a different view of things. Now here I am, working on a mixtape titled Est. 1995 and still making beats! Check it out
