He was also raised by a single mother after his father was sent to prison for 14 years. Unlike his brother and dad, the rapper decided to go down a different path in life.
“Shortly after my grandmother past and brother when to prison, I set up my own studio and just started rapping. I went to the Apollo Theater in Harlem to try out. I did a lot of things. I just never stopped. I kept going,” he said. “Music saved me, and my sound is genuine and real. When my brother went to prison, everyone thought I was next. However, I just want to touch people. I think that’s what I’m here for.”
