I was born and raised in Berkshire County, on the western edge of Massachusetts. There were very few examples of hip-hop artists from my rural hometown, but the music made its way into my life when I found CDs that belonged to my older brother. Inspired at age 11 by The Score by The Fugees, Illmatic by Nas, and other late 90s hip-hop, I forged a path not previously traveled by any white kid from The Berkshires.

My rapping is socially conscious, intelligent, forward-thinking, emotional and lyrical.
My production is described as classic hip-hop, boom bap, pop, eclectic, jazz-fusion, R&B and electronic.
