David Baptiste aka C.I.T.Y was born September 6, 1988 a resident of New Orleans Louisiana, first discovered his musical talent at the age of 10. Coming from strong jazz background music is in his blood. His great grand father Louis barbarian and great uncle Paul barbarian can be considered as two of the founders in the movement of jazz music. Growing up in the hard streets of the 7th ward New Orleans would not be an easy task at a early age facing a harsh reality. Coming up under his older cousins he found music as a way out. Getting older he discovered he could also use this as another way in. growing a love and a passion for expressing himself, but also noticing and addiction to the streets and fast money. I quote “ rapping was just another hobby until my junior year of high school.” were he decide to follow his passion and become one of the best people doing it. City decided if he was going to do it then lets do it different and give people something they can remember. So for that he mixes his rhyme up soulful, gangster, real rap, club rap, August 25,2005 was one of the biggest turning points in city’s life. While being forced to relocate to Dallas TX he realize what’s real that life is to short anything can happened and would happened and he had no control over life but he could control music.
