Biography

Born and raised in the backwoods of a small town called Minden in Northwest Louisiana, Truth began writing at an early age. He found that through writing poetry, rap lyrics, and creating art, he was able to express himself and re-channel negative energy that was built up from seeing his family endure enormous financial hardships. His earlier writings echoed the harsh realities of poverty and how it directly affected the quality of life he and his family endured. From living without some of life's basic necessities, often taken for granted by others, Truth continued to evolve as a person and artist. His life turned a corner, when he was transferred to a city high school, where he began experiencing more of the eminent struggles that are commonly found in inner city and urban environments.
