Hailing from suburban Ohio, now residing in South Carolina, The Exception is no stranger to the game. Beginning his recording career in 2005, starting in his mom's living room and performing at local talent shows, he's scratched and clawed his way to gain the respect of peers and fans alike. Having performed with the likes of Asher Roth, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Dej Loaf, Big KRIT, Mike Will Made It, Scotty ATL, Stalley, Raury and more, he lives for the big moments. With licensing placement on the arcade video game "Pump It Up DX", stations on all major internet radio platforms, such as Pandora and Apple Music, and multiple albums on all major online distributors, his reach is international. In an industry full of complacency and monotony, he is The Exception.
