"..music is an expression of the soul, when i listen to or create musical pieces i make sure it resonates with my soul…"
As a young child at the age of 3,he would recreate beats that he heard on TV or off the radio with his unique beat boxing style. In middle school,his peers & friends would gather around him to listen to him beat box because he sounded like his sounds were coming out a BOSE STEREO SPEAKER. This unique ability was his first call into the hip-hop culture. Around the age of 9,he started writing poetry & short stories in note books;it wasn't until he heard "COMMON'S I USED TO LOVE HER" on a 90's mix in his dad's car in 2001, that he felt those butterflies in him,he had it on repeat for days and one day while in class wrote his own version of the song behind his school book; adding some of his own lines and paraphrasing some of Common's. That day marked the BIRTH OF A PASSIONATE RELATIONSHIP that was never going to fade...
