Shtoney Is from Uptown, DC. He lived most of his life on Kennedy St. In 2008, he attended Howard University’s Middle School of Math and Science, HU MS2. While there, he was one of the top students in his music class. He learned about rhythm, measures, beats and various elements of music. That is when he decided what he wanted for his life. The school provided free Apple Laptops, to all students, which first introduced him to the recording and music producing software, Garage Band. He has been doing his own producing, writting, recording and mixing since he was in 6th grade; age 10.
During the first half of high school, he spent the first two years at Duke Ellington School of the Arts, where he improved his instrumental and vocal techniques in depth. "THE MIXTAPE'S COMING" -Shtoney
