After that, I was in a production deal with Adam Gazzola. He produced for Ruff Ryders,Def Jam, LL Cool J,MC SERGE (3RD BASS) EVE,JADA KISS,DMX, THE LOX ECT. BCM Recording studios after that. I learned a lot my good friend (C-MILLZ) about being a songwriter and great performer. Stopped rapping for 2yrs. Came back trying to find myself went from Ish to Trench,to Gotti, to Young Don (my fav) to lil soldier to souljahboy then when soljaboy tellem came, I was too content with the name to change it so i became O.S.B. or The O FOR SHORT.
