My motivation for pursuing music stemmed from a desire to channel my pain, passion, and troubles into something meaningful. As I navigated the difficulties of daily life, including a troubled adolescence that resulted in multiple stays in juvenile hall, I turned to writing lyrics as a way to express myself. Although I first aspired to become a rap star at the age of 13, my focus wavered as I got caught up in street life. However, by the age of 15, I found myself in a recording studio laying down my first track.
Unfortunately, at 19, I found myself incarcerated for a 4 year and 8 month sentence. Rather than letting this setback deter me, I used my time in prison to study the music industry and plan for my future as an artist. While behind bars, I even started my own record label. Once I was released, I immediately threw myself back into the studio, recording track after track and launching my rap career.
