Skilled Sample producer born in Gary indiana, Raised in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Produced Chris Cracks “Social Media is not the internet” & “Sandwiches fit in weed bags” & currently working on my first self produced rap album.
I was born in Gary Indiana, to straight poverty. But in the midst of that, hip hop was the background music to my environment & I always knew I wanted to be apart of it from a child till this day. When my parents separated we relocated to Milwaukee wisconsin so when my pops would come & get me we traded verses on Wu-tang-CREAM, The lost boys, Big daddy Kane -No half stepping, you name it East coast & pops had it. My uncles were heavy in the GD’s & loved west coast rap, you name it they had it. Moms was into Chicago house & R&B 70’s-90’s, my sisters new jack swing, my brother Midwest rap from Bone Thugs, Crucial Conflict, Do or Die. we talking all 90’s. The older I got the more I felt the desire to create. The influence of relevance is what I understood the most. Middle school hit & my teacher would make me rap for the class, one day my brother walks in with a TR-808 drum machine & it was over. I’m rapping and making beats, at age 13. But being where we from nice things don’t last long, machine comes up missing now I’m just rapping. High school comes & I get introduced to Frooty loops, but the computer crashes now I’m just putting out mixtapes. Now I’m working full time off my Maschine & I love nothing more than to make beats and raps. Plus I’m recording myself, I never took the initiative to get my beats to other rappers. I got my 1st placement and it’s my goal to land more
