So I naturally had an interest in entertainment and I always was rhyming so I grew up writing raps and freestyling at football practice and family gatherings went to highschool and started to gain interest in mixing. I got tired of paying off studio time with b******t engineers so I took my time and learned how to record myself still in High School. So I developed a hunger to always hear myself on new beats so I decided I want to say thank you and I really appreciate the love I get from ya’ll on every project keep believing in the music and the brand.
