As he got older, growing up in the ‘90s artists like Nas, Biggie Smalls, Jay-z became monumental influences when it came to lyrical creativity. However, it was at the 1987 Jack the Rapper contest in Wyandanch High School where he fell in love with the stage. Even though he did not do the greatest job starting out, it planted a seed from that moment on.
Being from “Far Rock” you have to know how to survive in a community where only hustlers reign supreme. Even though his family has always supported his craft, reality of his every day struggle got the best of him and his dreams of rapping came a distant memory. It was not until he made a promise to his mother on her deathbed that he gave up the street life completely and focused on his music.
