Bio

I began writting music when my brother passed away in a car accident. Before that, I was in the basketball team with my brother at Pike High School. When he died, I couldnt see basketball the same anymore, and i began writing lyrics to ease my pain. What began as a pain reliever became something bigger.

I started to get the buzz around Indianapolis about my Music, so I started to turn it to a career. In mid 2011, I created a label called "Fly America" with DJ Yung 1. I released my Single. "Last Night" on June 12th, 2011 on youtube, and It has gained 450,000 views since.

Going to today, I have released two mixtapes on Datpiff.com. My first mixtape, "Walking Distance", released on July 26th, 2012, gained 17,000 downloads and 33,000 views. My sophmore mixtape, "Saturday School", released on November 10th, 2012, gained 36,000 downloads and 113,000 views. We gained the "Bronze Medal" for having 25,000+ Downloads.

My Music Videos are seen on MTV and IMC. I have Radio Play all across the Nation, majority of it from Indiana.

What sets me different from any other musican is that I dont use profanity in ANY of my songs. I want my fans and listeners to know who I am as a person. I ain't a gangster, I never use drugs or drank alochol, so why talk about it? Its not who I am.
