Whats good everyone!
Im B.A.T coming out of VA.born in el salvador but raised in reston va. Growing up in Ceader ridge i was influnced by hiphop. It was a rough area at the time and i found peace by writing poetry. Both parents worked hard to support 3 boys. so we was left to take care of each other. I was the oldest. I started to write raps in 7th grade. Wasnt good at all. but i stuck by it. I knew Victor Camacho from middle school. We was always good friends. But in 9th grade we ran into eachother while skipping class. He told me he was going home to record with a few people and asked if i wanted to join in. i was like fuck it, why not. So we headed to his house and i fell in love with producing. i worked with vic on every song. Then alot of bullshit happened and people split. Vic and i decided we could do this alone. so i started to rap.mannnnn it was so bad. my first verse i recorded and i will never forget was to the Cam'ron Purple Haze beat..i loved that shit..and we stayed with it.. a few months down the road. i found out vic knew Dub. Now me and Dub seen eachother in every fight in school. its was lunchin. but they grew up togther in Island Walk just a stone throw away from Ceader Ridge. They had recorded a song with my best friend Bryan..Dub heard i rapped and from then it was a rap. Tristate was born. We been a group for about 7 years. I just started my solo career. and so far so good. check us out link is on my page. we have huge projects coming out for the group. Its gonna be a great year for Tristate.Of course we all do our solo shit.
