The transition from the fast city lifestyle to a much more slow paced rural lifestyle was one that Jones struggled with. Not having any friends and being an only child coupled with not having a positive father figure around, Jones took to writing poetry to help to deal with the stress. During his Sophomore year of high school Jones began rapping with two friends and they formed the group SouthSideSquadrant. Throughout the duration high school the group released many mixtapes and saw themselves making music well into the future.
Unfortunately after graduation the group split went to different colleges and all stopped rapping. Jones as a freshman at North Carolina A&T State University placed his music on the backburner to focus on obtaining his B.S. Degree in Computer Science.
