Misterelle write of himself: "Being from an area where you're more likely to go to prison than to college, would make even the most whimsical of characters second guess their future. But Richmond-bred rapper Misterelle had another plan in mind. He dates back, "to a kid Richmond could be as vast as the entire universe and at the same time as minuscule as the ants on the ground ". And to a seemingly malnourished little boy, the world couldn't be any bigger. He traces his musical background back to his boyhood. "I'm remember when being in children's choirs at school and plays like The Nutcracker. I would lip-sync whenever I can get away with it."
