How did you get into music? 

My Daddy Was A DJ so I was exposed to a lot of music when I was younger. This was the period when a lot of southern rappers was really starting to blow so a lot of what I was listening to was Jeezy, Gucci, Webbie, UGK. Then my brother started rapping when we was really young and I was just always around. But what really got me into music is when I lost my 2 homeboys Delvin Simmons and Levi Moody.
