I was born March 19, 1985 in Philadelphia, PA where at the age of 5 started playing the drums. By the age 8 I was the drummer of Emmanuel United Methodist church and sang on the children’s choir. By the age 15 I began traveling to different churches in the Philadelphia area playing and singing for various programs and events. At the age 16 I began recording rap& R&B music with a former member of “Stets Sonic”. During the time of my recording I was asked to play for a Jazz band entitled “Theory” where I was the drummer for about 2 years. Being in a jazz band was new to me, but also helped me get better understandings of different music. During my time with the band I got to be around and see other artist and musicians and learn a lot and at the same time got a chance to be featured in a Philadelphia local magazine “Fusion”. Facing a life where I came up around drugs, violence, and trouble I began turning to some of the wrong things in life and giving up on faith. At 17 years old I was re-baptized and become a member of Mount Carmel Baptist located on the west part of Philadelphia where I joined the Mount Carmel Youth and Young Adult Choir directed by Sheila Hughes.
At the age 19 I re-located to Williamsport Pennsylvania where I had learned my father was residing and decided to try to get away from the bad things and start my life over on the a good path. Even though I was a strong believer in GOD, I also believe that he gives you gifts and talents for a good reason and felt that my gift was being a good Rapper, Singer, Dancer, Drummer, Producer, and overall an entertainer. Saying that I say even though I rap, sing, etc. My faith in the lord has never changed and I believe that because of his will I have a gift to share not only with family and friends, but with the world. By the age 24 I decided to invest in my own studio and get the thing I felt I needed to make my dream possible. Now being 26 years old I am recording, producing, writing, and doing shows showing my gift that I have been blessed with. As far as my goals in life I plan to go back to school to get a degree and to sign with a label that can help me grow more as a man and as an artist. I have many dreams of being something in music and I feel that dreams are worth chasing!

- sounds like:
- It may sound cocky but I consider myself to be just a gift to music. What I do is different the other rappers because I am not that. I don't consider myself as a Rapper because I feel when you are labeled a Rapper you have a certain image set for you so I consider myself as an Artist. Reason being is that I don't just rap...I make good music for all ears.
