I'm half black and half jamaican. Alongside an older brother, i was raised in the Fort Greene Projects til the age of 9. My parents were able to move our family to a two family brownstone in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn. Though the change of address was good, it was the begining of a tough road ahead.
Life started to change for me. Music was always a driving force for me, but i was always told that i should focus on having a career and that music would only be a hobby. In my preteens nothing was more important than cutting schools, girls, just havin fun, and more than anything making money. Selling drugs, and causing havoc were my priorities.
I was always intelligent, and a fast learner, but how could i learn if i didn't go to school. By the age of 16, my mom was sick of it and decicded to kick me out of the house place me in an in-house drug program with 30 other people. I was supposed to come back after completion, but two months before my 17th birthday, i left New York and moved to Atlanta... I spent the next 4 years homeless off and on, finding small jobs here and there, and even hustling from time to time to make ends meet.
Through those crazy nights, only a pen and pad kept me sane. Hard times nearly reduced me to nothing, but i got myself together and made the move back to New York. I returned with a name, an agenda, and a vow to never fall again.. I moved to Brownsville, BK.
Riverdale to be exact!!! I did right by some of my wrongs, kept myself afloat, managed to build a home studio with some help from my father and friends, and set sights on my music career. It's been Hazardous Hitz ever since!!!!!! Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
