Im TaNkOnPaInT, the artist that turnt producer. I been making music since i was 9. My grandaddy was a great friend to Ray Charles, while my grandmother took care or Ray for multiple years. When I was 14, I got a job and bought my first karaoke machine. I recorded hundreds of frestyles. By the age of 17, I was deep in the streets and started to see my life change right before my eyes. Still at 17 I had dropped out of school and my mom made the best decision in my life...she got me outta there!! She made a phone call to Rochester, New York and told my father to come and get me becaue I was too hard-headed and wouldn't listen. I thought it was all a joke, but the following week I seen an unusual truck pull up in the drive-way...it was my dad. He said, "Wassup...you ready to go?" Then I said, "No!". Then he said, "You going anyway." And I was like, "No I aint!" He ended up making me get in the truck anyway. I was mad all the way to North Carolina, until I realized this is real! This a brand new start. By the time I was 20, 3 years into NY, a few beat downs from dad, and I still wouldnt listen, my life took a drastic turn for the worst. I ended back in Florida and thats where it all started. I stopped giving a damn about life, stopped being around family, got into the criminal world and ended up doing time in jail. I told myself right then that this wasnt for me. But I only knew one thing, and that's street life and it ended me back in jail over 10 times within 4 years. The last time I got in trouble, I was falsely accused and was looking at life in prison. Some kind of way God got into my life. I started to pray more. He gave me another shot at life, when I knew I was innocent the entire time All i'm saying is I am who I am. Ive learned to acceptance God into my life and he's my personal savior.
