While growing up in different parts of Richmond Virginia, I started to hear different types of music. What also gave me that raw desire to further myself to poetry with an beat. I recited my first poem in front my classmate, teachers, and classmate when I was eight years of age. My family also played a major part in my love for music and poetry. Aunt Carla Was an reggae & go-go type of person. My mother was an more Temptations & Luther kind of person. Uncle Main was an house music listener. So with that being said theirs no type of music I haven't attempted to listen to. In school one day we had an field trip an one of the assistance stated were going to listen to something different today; So of course everyone was upset. The selection that was chosen was heavy metal & rock-n-Roll. The First minute I hated it but once I open my ears I understood, the band I was listening to was Saliva. From that day on I never judge music from what it seemed to be I will open my heart and listen from within. I Started officially rapping when I was 15 my first group was 6 Shotz ENT which consisted of myself and my cousin Marcus & Wesley. I think we were together for about three weeks before disaster struck. Being teenagers with nothing to do we decided to do something illegal which ended 6 Shotz ENT.
The results ended in probation with separation from each other for an year. Which got me off track I was an senior in high school Waiting to graduate with pending possible felony charges. With an great mother and a lot of prayer that was the wake up call I needed. So myself and Wesley attempted to try again, To team up with some of our other cousin who had an group Power House ENT. For the first two years everything was great it seemed like that was the right move for me at the time. Once multiple opportunities came someone got big headed an forgot the team so with that being said I HAD TO GO. So June 2010 I started this group called Amp'D Up ENT Corporation, Which brought me an respected name I think like n the first week one of my songs ranked 500 out of one million other people, so I was like yeah boy lol. In three weeks time I dropped my first mix-tape ever Just Do You. Me an my partner Yung Star Spent Hour less Nights day in and out to create this mix-tape. It was an success for me, to be able to accomplish something so fast from when I was an kid to believe in really happened. I'm just an kid with an DREAM an one day I shall succeed. Music my life it helped me through an lot of stressful situation I remember when life seems to hard to bare I would grab an instrumental an go ham.
We had many family function when all the boys would get together an create an cypher. Of course he same problem I had back then still remains to this day I'm different so when most people see change they get scared an turn the other was. In high school I use to get kicked outta class because I will be beating on the desk making beats for the other rappers. Same thing I was doing in seventh grade but something strange happened in seventh grade my teacher didn't kick me an my peers out. Instead he set us up an interview with some local artist to go farther with our music. Well It was all good couldn't wait to get back the following year but of course I had to move. So from day forward I promise myself I will Never I MEAN NEVER LIVE WITHOUT MUSIC
