Bio

I'm a Producer/Engineer/Emcee, and I started when I was 14. This all began at a non-profit program called The computer clubhouse in Rogers Park. A volunteer was running the studio one day and I got up the courage to sing. Problem was...I couldn't sing. So when he sat me down and told me that, I broke down like a baby...but then he asked me something magical, "Wanna learn how to make beats?"

Since then, It's been a passion I can't let go, no matter what happens in my life, my love and gift for music is without repentance and I understand that it is more about being at peace with my maker through Christ than whether or not I can make a million dollars a beat...although that would be VERY nice.
