Born and raised in the tough Chicago streets Darvell Goodwin raised by a single mother was destined to lose. Brought up just around the corner from the legendary United Center on the west side violence erupted everyday in his presence. Unable to stray away Vello had found himself in the mix of gang violence and had almost been exposed to the drug trade had it not been for his father moving him to the southwest suburb of Plainfield Illinois. Vello had always been diligent and smart keeping good grades and striving through the honor roll. When he was young he was very passionate about art and the many forms of it, and began to take on art forms himself such as graffiti. From that point on art had always been in his heart and the hip hop culture it brought influenced him to become Chicago's own Vello listening to trending pioneers such as Common, Scarface, Nas, DMX, and the Wu Tang Clan. He then began his journey as a rapper at the age of fourteen by writing poems and short stories to describe his story for the people to relate too. His music is very outspoken and more of a verbal mind opening session with his unique style of taking hip-hop through the generation he was born in giving everyone something to listen to.
