However, he always displayed a hidden talent for rapping when he was a child, but did not let his parents or peers let in on it, until later, when he decided he wanted to venture into the world of music.As time passed, his hobby turned into his passion and he developed an interest in becoming a musician with the year 2008 becoming his first foray into the world of hip-hop and rap music.
It started with an Indie label founded by Alonzo Shaw or better known as PaperTrail Newyear and at the same time he acquired a digital distribution opportunity through the company Tunecore.He went on to release his first debut single, “Go Get Em” in 2016. His debut single garnered more than 10,000 streams on Spotify.
What sets him apart from other independent artists in the hip-hop and rap industry is his ability to use enticing word play and aggressive delivery of lyrics. He credits the 90s and early 2000s hip-hop, R&B, and reggae for influencing his sound.
