Born Adryion Andreyas Labrelle Lindsey in Fresno California, Atown also known as A.T. $hawty $hawty soon showed his family and peers that he is remarkably bright and it wasnt hard to shine at anything that he did. "I DONT KNO WHY, I JUST KNEW THINGS PEOPLE 10 20 30 YEARS OLDER THAN ME DIDNT. THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT LIFE THAT I ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD, MY TEACHERS CALLED IT SPEACIAL. MY MOMMA CALLED IT ROYALTY, GRANDMA SAYS IM JESUS CHILD, I JUST SAY IM TOO A.T. TO FAIL AT ANYTHING I TRY..."
And even as a young black kid growing up in Central/Southern CA "Teezy" would be known as the smartest kid in all his schools. Well liked by everyone around him at school and in the neighborhood. A.T. says that as a kid he had so many friends that he just was cool with everyone... "TO THIS DAY IM 21 YEARS OLD AND MY EXPIERIENCES IN LIFE AND THE LOVE I GET FROM PEOPLE IS UNREAL. I CANT EVEN BEGIN TO EXPLAIN MY ENCOUNTERS GIFTS AND BLESSINGS. I ALWAYS KNEW THAT I WOULD BE HATED BY MOST..." A.T. was not only a natural comedian, he also had a certain look that seemed to charm everything around him. A certain glow of leadership that guaranteed Teezy a positive outcome in any situation. Growing up with parents that shared the same traits gave lil A.T. room to exsercise these "gifts" as a dailylife advantage. Over the years A.T.s Family moved a royal series of times, lived in over 15 states and balled in every major city in the U.S. by the age of 13, yung A.T. had been to, and done so many things and places, Using His creative streak to compliment the fact that he always had something slick to say, but it always was clever, and Odd in its Life Lessons. Middle school was like Hell for A.T. although he was always popular, he still was concience about being an overweight teen, but his upbringing and his bloodline would only use that as gas to be a BEAST. " I ripped niggas, witty clever and cold like a pimp, while thugged out and raw as a gangsta bully. at 13 I was 6 3 340 pounds. spoiled and gamed up by my dad, rap, and the internet, I decided if ima be This nigga that everybody hate, i might as well give them a reason. So i started making songs about being a real nigga, that says shit just how it is to a young nigga. IM A.T. BITCH , IM SMARTER THAN YOU, I GOT MO MONEY THAN YOU, YEA BITCH IM FAT BUT AINT NO REASON WHY YO PUSS SHOULD HUM THIS LOUD.... AND IM MORE HANDSOME THAN YOU. FRESH LOL"
With popularity, clubbing, sex and leadership... druguse, and hereditary hood utensils, streetlife seemed like the only thing Teezy wanted to be apart of. Eventually He gave up on school, and did everything in his power to live like he really felt... like there was no hope but the hope to get rich and gangbang and in 2009 at the age of 17 Atown would quit going to highschool in texas and moved out of his parents house and dived head first back into the grimey streets of his hometown of Fresno Cali. With the help of his cousins and half brother Junie, he would chase dreams of becoming the ultimate "NIGGA." "The plan was to do everything Grimey you can think of to get paid, fuck all the bops and bust at tha enemiegos. And on the weekends rap about the adventures and talk that shit. I was doin so much i couldnt believe I was so coled. I was A.T. that nigga... I had the reputation, the swag the team, and my music style was different, everybody loved the early hits. I was taking Trips out of town in rentals. knockin bitches up and down the 5 freeway from mexi cali to vancuver. All my niggas was in the streets and the bitches still aint shit, it was just about time to blow up i had my city...."
