Born In Brooklyn's East New York Neighborhood and Raised In Queens, Spit Gemz had to learn from an early age how to hold his own. In his formative years, he was uprooted from his life in Brooklyn at the young and vulnerable age of 6 due to his fathers incarceration. In an extremely unstable environment at home, he was constantlly being uprooted between Queens and East New York until the age of 17. In 1996 Spit Gemz was dragged to a new home, this time it wasnt Brooklyn or Queens, it was Juvenile Jail. Throughout his timultuous time being confined, he picked up his would be lifelong passion, writing rhymes. After a 2 year stint in Juve, he took 1 thing with him, h is rhymebook. Being from a Broken home and living the life of an urban youth, he started to dabble in hustling off the books like many young adults from the street. He was blessed in 2001 with the love of his life, his Daughter, but in the same year he got locked up again and caught a 5-10yr sentence. After a 6 year stint in prison, he came home to a family to feed, but no solid job prospects. He resorted to the one thing he knew well for some quick easy money to carry his family........Hustling. Unfortunately just 2 years later, he found himself yet again in trouble wth the law, this time he was hit with a slashing charge, he beat the case but was violated for parole infractions and spent the better part of the year 2009 up north. After his release in 2010, he decided to dedicate his life to music and hasnt looked back.
