"One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain"

Music loves me and I love music. Growing up like all little brothers do I looked up to my big brothers, always wanting to hang with them and find out what happens past bedtime. I think of my oldest brother as wise and my middle brother, well, lets call him tuff love.

Although I was born in Saint Anne's Bay, Jamaica I was raised in Boscobel. Reggae music is the only music I knew existed or even thought of listening to. A single mother, with myself being the youngest of 3 boys made the decision to move to America for a better life. Brought to the place that we knew as "foreign" I was rapidly exposed to new music all around me. The first song I recall hearing that I realized was not reggae was The Men In Black theme song by Will Smith. Having 2 older brothers who were exposed to American high schools in the late 90's, I became familiar with the hip hop culture in a relatively short period of time. As a young child who was always curious and always questioning the world around me, there was one question I was asked that I could never understand or wrap my mind around to give an answer.

"What do YOU want TO BE when you grow up?"

As I grew older and I started listening to the music around me, I was first simply influenced by the different sounds, vibrations, tones, and rhythms of different songs. I first showed my interest in music by creating beats. The entire summer of 2003, I took my own formation of music to the next level, and I learned how to use different programs to create beats. I had friends who knew how to rap, so I started inviting them over to use my equipment to record what ever they wanted. When I saw the skills, the talent, and the fun they had making music, it sparked the idea in me to begin to write my own music.

After 7 years of struggling in Broward County, Florida I was brought to Palm Beach because my mother finally started to make tnhe living that she worked so hard for. Myself being homesick, I traveled back and forth to Broward County as often as I could and on those train rides would be the moments I made my 1st songs, With my equipment in Palm Beach and my homies in Broward, my equipment got dusty as was not put to much use. This was when I began to sit down and more seriously write on my own in my free time. Writing rhymes released my mind of the stress of a new environment, a new school, and no familiar faces around me to share.

Now, after years of writing music I am more hungry than ever for the success that most people only dream about. Although practice makes perfect, perfecting my craft has taken a lot of inspiration through struggles and personal life experiences that have given me a story to tell.
