His mother an aspiring singer, his father a founding member of Haitian Kompa group Dificil, and his grandmother a piano teacher in Haiti. I.Beam took to the piano as early as age 5. As a teenager he fell in love with Hip-Hop and R&B... and started composing his own music at home... but as soon as he walked out the doors of his Queens apartment, he says there would be somebody banging on a mailbox and the freestyle session would begin... after meeting some label A&R's at age 13 he was offered a deal with Arista Records but his mother refused to sign because of his grades.
"I put my mother threw straight hell for the next two years......" said Beam referring to a timeframe in his life that ended him with a visit to Rikers Island. Shortly after, he moved to Florida with his musical aspirations still intact and decided he would learn to produce his own albulm and make his own label.
