Born on December of 1986, and with no father around, Breed was raised by his mother and grandmother. He proclaims "As a kid, there were only 2 things I knew; 2 things I could turn to - hustling and music." With a passion for rapping and hustling, Breed decided to combine the two and rise above his tumultuous surroundings. At the age of 9, he was already freestyling over old-school classics, and he recorded his first studio track at 13. Breed's influences include 2Pac, Biggie, and Big Pun, but he counts rappers from Miami and the South as his biggest inspiration. "The M.I.Yayo and the South as a whole had the biggest impact on me. Rick Ross, JT Money, Trick Daddy, and Piccalo were my real influences."
