Queens bred up and coming rapper Val, credits his friend Tonye for introducing him to the music, from an artist stand point. Val rapped and wrote rhymes for fun at first. He began to write with friend E, who then introduced him to Burna J. Together, they became a group named Diamond Thieves and soon after began creating their first mixtape. Val, later moved to Tampa to study animation, and a year later realized that music was his true passion, and switched his major to Recording Arts. Re linking with Burna J in 2007, pushing through to 2009, Val is now going to make himself known, with production by The Heavyweights, great lyrics to match and with over 100's of songs written and dozens recorded.
