Born a military brat in California, Matthew Bridges, known as KROE has always felt music was a part of him. It wasn't until kinfolk Demetris Evans introduced him to Master P and the No Limit Soldiers that he decided to be an emcee. In 4th grade, teachers provided students the opportunity to perform for parents at PTA programs; he and his close friends made it known that they were going to shine. The assistant principal saw his rap spirals and folders with random drawings and Freddy Krueger-like pictures and rhymes. Appalled, she had him throw it all away, but like an addict, he was back at it the next day. Still developing his style and delivery, he began to generate a buzz; but the quality of the music and content was far from what it is today. You could tell he had been getting better by the page. He started a group called the Lynwood Posse consisting of neighborhood kids of about 12 which soon dwindled down to 3. In High School, the group gained 3 more members outside Lynwood, so they decided to change the group name to Fallz Town Posse and release their first full length CD titled "The Ductape Album." The group got the chance to open up for Chingo Bling and Dope House Records artists Rasheed and Lucky Luciano. The group broke up due to creative differences. He released his first solo project titled "Dyin Song Bird," which was deep and well thought. It was a great way to let his loyal fans know where he stood as an artist. He got together with his Lynwood comrades and put out their mixtape of freestyles titled "Platinum Folks." After High School, KROE was back solo. He traveled a little bit, but went back to Wichita Falls, TX and put out "The Phoenix," to let his fans know he was back with more lyricism and dope beats. Due to an extended personal leave of absence, his next project didn't get recorded or released until a couple years later, which was the original "Birds Eye View."
