By the age of seven the southern rap artist moved to South Bay Florida where he spent the reminder of his childhood. In South Bay he was raised by his mother Phylis Clark alone with his seven brother and three sisters in South Bay projects. Feet’s away from the corner filled with drugs, prostitution, & gang violence and through the mist of it all was still able to overcome the many harsh reality of the ghetto. Growing up, Billy had a different ear for music then his peers. Listening to a larger variety of hip-hop like east and west along with the traditional big southern acts he then started to developed his unique music style. This was rare because the majority of the southern hip-hop consumer only listened to southern music. By age eighteen got was given a football scholarship by Rutgers University in New Jersey, due to being a top rated linebacker nationally coming out of high school. At Rutgers the he often free styled and wrote rhymes, for friends that where involved in music. Peers started to torment Billy to take his music more seriously, because they felt he had a gift with music that could really go far if taken seriously. Billy started to take music more seriously and success began to follow. Billy also stared in a movie while in College that went straight to DVD called Rebecca’s Window, where he played a ruthless drug lord. After a short venture with music Billy was introduced to a business entrepreneur that gave him an opportunity to be involved with “Streets Mos’ Magazine” street conference in Harlem New York City, in which he won the conference with his Southern swag and northern witty flow and became the new champion of the streets in summer 2006. A conference that was won a year earlier by the rap artist formally known as “Papoose” a New York native that was at the time signed to Violator/ Jive and had a really hot buzz in the streets. As “Street Artist of the Year” Billy Da Kid began heating up mix tapes and getting spins on major radio stations such as Hot 97. The rapper has since then performed numerous venues nationally and internationally. Even though music was going well for Billy, football was a priority of his. By the end of Billy’s senior year he was projected to be a late third round or early fourth round draft pick for the 2007 NFL draft. On draft day Billy never heard his named called, but he didn’t let it break him down. At that moment Billy decided to focus on Music and never look back.
