Background: I started coming up with lines in my head at the age of 12 I was telling my man I got rhymes(I listened to RunDMC, Ice Cube, Ghetto Boys, Eazy-E and Young MC....) I liked to get my Mack on at the Fox Hills Mall, so I would come up with sweep lines to kick to the hotties. He said I couldn't be a real rapper. I played ball through Elementary and High School. Smoking and chilln' out one day after I graduated from High School I saw a commercial for C.S.D.H. for classes in the studio and a 48 track console, I was hooked. In my second year in college I was shot at a college house party in the hood by an AK-47 assault riffle I stayed in Cenntinela Hospital in Inglewood for two months, I was released right before 1999.
