I started my journey in church both my parents turned there life around once I came into play my dad was more of a stickler and stayed with the gospels once he got into it my mom kept her R&B thank God lol I had to sneak and listen to it when my dad wasn’t around. I used to practice singing with my dad a learning instruments piano drums and dancing with my mom but once I grew up and was able to branch out I was introduced to rap music and fell in love with it so much and love the express and confidence it gave I immediately gravitated towards it. I grew up on Bone Thugs Tupac lil Wayne Jay Z Three 6 Mafia lol all of them. I started free styling right on my front porch at the age of 15 with my siblings.
