Born: January 19, 1987
This Cincinnati’s native roots run deep to the historic Lincoln Heights. He has his own unique story much like his hometown… Inspirational and tear-jerking.
After being exposed to the world of Hip-Hop through artists like Kris Kross and Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony, his idol Jay-Z and the stories told by them it made him pursue his endeavor in music. At 18, Gamm was truly intrigued by Hip-Hop and sought after something more than school and sports. “Neither challenged me enough”, Gamm explains.
Realizing the charisma he was born with Gamm began to guide his peers not even knowing his own purpose yet. On August 4, 2006 at age 19 he was shot in Downtown Cincinnati on 14th and Vine Street. “I believe everything happens for a reason even though I never said two words to the guy who shot me”, he recollects. He found Elementz Youth Hip-Hop and Arts Center in April 2005 and strongly believes that he was destined to get shot to awaken his passion in music.
By 2008 Gamm was recognized for his efforts to help build his community, bridging the gaps between young and old, white and black. The unconditional love for his sister, Serenity, is what motivated him to want more. The sudden death of his beloved uncle, Kevin Williams SR. and home-going of his dearly cherished grandmother, Elease Wiley also served as motivation to put his hometown, Cincinnati, on the map. “I will not lose! All I know is win!” Gamm declares.
