He had a troublesome childhood as both of his parents struggled with substance abuse; his mother was an addict to crack cocaine while his father was an alcoholic. Witnessing what these things had done to his parents, he decided against using any drugs or drinking alcohol, not wanting his brain to be affected.
Rise to Fame
In 2008, he along with a high school friend Montelle Talley decided to form a rap group with several others. The group would be called 300 and is based on the hit film of the same name, which follows the story of 300 Spartans who overcame over 300,000 of the Persian Army, preventing the invaders from taking over their homeland; the film line “No surrender, no retreat, only the hard, only the strong, against all odds” was particularly inspiring. In 2014, he started releasing music, his first mixtape entitled “Cursed with a Blessing”, containing several singles including “Holy Ghost”, “Ice Cream Truck”, and “Fuck Her Brains Out”, and which was produced by various artists.
The following year, his fame increased further when he made a guest appearance in the show “Empire”. The series follows a fictional entertainment and hip hop music company called Empire Entertainment, and the drama that surrounds the family who owns the company. The pilot was a success and the series has now been running for five seasons. After his cameo, he collaborated with his friend Talley, also known as Talley of 300, in a collaborative mixtape including “Gunz and Roses”, and singles such as “Mf’s Mad” and “FGE Cypher”.
In 2016, he announced that he would be working on his debut studio album, entitled “Fire in the Church”, containing 18 tracks and featuring artists from Fly Guy Entertainment which he was signed to, particularly Kevin Gates. It received a lot of notice, even gaining positive reviews from the magazine “XXL”, and peaking in the 95th spot of the Billboard 200. The following year, he released a compilation album entitled “No Surrender, No Retreat” and then worked on his second album which came out a few months later, entitled “Don’t Doubt the God”.
A year later, after making more music and promoting his recent releases, he began work on his third album, entitled “Pray for the Devil”, released in mid-2018 and containing singles such as “Chiraq vs. NY” and “Ugly”. One of his latest projects is his fourth album entitled “A Gun in the Teacher’s Desk” which was released later in the year. Some of the singles promoting the album were “Been a Beast”, and “Dip-n-Sauce”. He continues to collaborate with other artists, and feature in singles including “Like Me” by Jewelz Montalvo and “Come Up” by Innocent.
