I was born IN MARYLAND and lived in Washington, DC in 1983. As I was growing up I remember listening and seeing my father singing in the church choir, to me my father is a renaissance musician. Being able to listen to the radio and hear artist like Run DMC and LL Cool J just to name a few. I would have never imagined how much they would influence me to go for my destiny to become an artist. That's when Hip Hop was really delivering a message. There was no beefing during those times and the competition was real hip-hop music. I knew with hard work and determination I would become one of those great Icons.
