As a child my earliest memories are screaming and aggressiveness . My only memory of my parents together is my Dad holding a knife to my Mothers throat. My Father was a cheating, lying, abusive Scumbag.
My Mother even tho she wasn't "Mom of the Year". She did everything in her power to keep Me and My Sister safe. I ended up inheriting Anger issues such as Manic Depression and Intermitted Explosive Disorder with a side of ADHD. Plus being the only white kid in Asbury Park NJ in the 80s I had my work cut out for me. Got kicked out of West Bangs Avenue Elementary School faster then I got in. That started a never ending cycle. At seven yrs old my Mom met my step pops. He was a drug addict and an alcaholic. Pretty much a good dude tho. He was in and outa jail and rehab and kicked the liquor and just smoked weed with occasional other stuff. So I ended up in and outa psych wards for my Violent Out bursts .Eventually got kicked out of my house and moved in with my Gma at 15 and my Mom bounced to Florida wit my step pops. My Gma helped me out in anyway she could. Do to my abandonment issues and the fact that the Drs I was forced to see having me heavily medicated I became an every-addict. Drinking,Smoking, selling and snorting my own medications I was given the name Pilz by about 15 yrs old. Surprisingly I managed to graduate high school. After that Women and Drugs became my vices. My psychotic Father stayed at my Gma's house. I tried ta make it through the craziness but after the Scumbag pulled a gun on me I left and tried to stay in Florida for a little. Again my color made me the minority,and with all the crime and drugs down there it just fueled my need for dysfunction .I do owe a thanks to Florida. I would never of started freestyling and Rapping anywhere else,but after the drug dealing , introduction to guns and getting into fights left and right I headed back to NJ. At this time I was in Jersey with nuttn but the clothes on my back. By My early 20s I became a heroin addict. I robbed people and sold Drugs to support my habits. This went on for about 2 yrs. After numerous arrests and some over-doses I finally ran out of chances and Went to jail for 2yrs ,went to rehab for 6 months and Came out on Drug court. After my release I Started taking rapping seriously,kept my nose clean and Graduated Drug court. Then I went through some fucked up shit . I Had a couple small slip ups wit drugs,but picked my self right up.Then about 2 yrs ago I started to feel very sick, my feet swelled up, my memory started to go, my organs and joints started to have horrific pain and after about a year of that I got diagnosed with lupus. Lupus is kinda crazy considering I didn't even know what it was at first. I started Rapping again and I am currently pushing my self everyday to chase my dreams no matter what happens. It's hard to do but if I stop then Lupus Wins.i am still fighting my addiction, but winning of corse,My mom got cancer,my step pops has Alzheimer's and my Gma is in the first stages of losing her mind. I have good friends making Music with me. I met a great Girl that really cares about me and has really helped me since I got diagnosed with the Lupus. I believe in god and believe that I have gone through all this and was given the talent to make Music so I can help people learn from everything I have been through.Yes things have been hard and maybe I didn't get to have the best childhood or even adulthood for that matter but I'm glad I know what I know. I'm not gunna be brought down by the negotive things . I will use them to educate my fans and fuel my motivation.
P.S. I believe that everything happens for a reason as long as we don't fight against the progression.
