He started listening to Hip Hop around the age of 7. His first favorite Hip Hop album was Dj Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince Home Base. The first CD's he ever bought were DMX's It's Dark and Hell is Hot and Jay Z's Volume 2: Hard Knock Life at the age of 8 or 9 which had a lot of influence on his attitude about himself and Hip Hop. He started writing poetry at the age of 9 and began writing raps when he was around 11 or 12. He started taking music seriously around 15 years old, with no style developed on the mic. He started to learn how to make beats on Garageband back in 04 and started recording freestyles with his friends. He didn't actually learn format until he was 16. He started paying attention to a lot more New York artists( emcees like Mos Def, jay Z, and Big L). Around that time he met a lot of people that had a better understanding of writing in bar format and recording music. At this time he started listening to more local Hip Hop artists and stumbled upon Binary Star and One Be Lo. Through a youth center in downtown A2(Neutral Zone), he saw One Be Lo perform and after the show was given advice from One Be Lo on how to approach the game. Later he became known as T-Mic and formed a few groups with a few good friends(Street Game, Verbal Lock, Tru Prophecy)
