Born in Louisville, Kentucky, I came to Austin when I was eleven. We moved around a lot and my father was absent. My mother was diagnosed with depression and schizophrenia while my brother was diagnosed with schizophrenia only. Labeled a trouble maker, I was in a gang and sold drugs until I met my mentor, Zell, when I got to high school. He then introduced me to The Cypher Austin's Hip Hop Project at 16. I put out a few projects with them until I was 18 and I've been doing music on my own since then. A few years ago, I decided I'd start my own label, Hard Life Entertainment. I've put out one project on my own so far. I've also done small acting gigs in a few local productions.
