Growing up in the church, Trap Boi Gangsta fell in love with all genres of music from the beginning such as: gospel, R&B, Soul, Blues and of course Hip Hop. The day He heard Master P’s “I’m Bout It” was the day he decided he wanted to be a rapper. As the years went on his love for hip hop only grew stronger.
At age 17, Trap Boi Gangsta, his brother and 3 friends formed a group called the “Trap Bois”.
