|Blow Ya Back Out|
|Call on Me|
|Start Over ft. Big Keys|
I was born and raised in Forrest City, AR. Moved to N. Little Rock when I was 19 in 1999 moved back to FCA in 2003.
What inspired me to do music?
The love of good music what more can I say? I grew up on a lot of soul and r & b like the Gap Band, Al Green, and Marvin Gaye. My uncle got me started on really listening to rap. He played a lot of Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Kool Moe Dee, etc.... I was always able to write. Starting writing poetry and won my first poetry contest when I was in the 3rd grade. After I graduated, one of my homeboys was looking at one of my notebooks and told me I could flip 'em into song form. Started out trying to freestyle but couldnít do it at first. They started a cipher and I'll write until its my turn and would have written up to maybe 48 bars. Starting recording myself free styling with 2 tape decks and did my first freestyle song off the instrumental to Dave Hollister's Favorite Girl. Moved to Little Rock and kept writing while I was living there I met a few guys who helped me get better free styling and start running around Little Rock with my crew battling anybody. I met Big Keys right before I moved and he gave me all his contact info. Moved back to F.C. and recorded my first song with my homeboy Randy Cottrell in his shed. Started recording with Keys shortly after. I have recorded 3 full cd's: True to Life (2003), All and Nothing Else (2005), and Loveletters and Death Threats (2010). 2 untitled mix tapes and 1 group cd Boss, Mac Mob "Getcha Stacks up". Life and the feeling that I am destined for more than a normal existence is the reason I keep going. The need to provide my daughter a better life than I ever had and the feeling that I could actually contribute to my hometown, my home state, and others is my motivation. I feel like if I stop, I'll be letting too many people down. Besides that, I hate the garbage thatís being fed to the youth. Music with no substance is just as bad as any substance abuse. Music influences people and motivates people to keep going when they think they canít. How could music do that now if has no substance or is pointless? I'm here to bring back meaning to the words we speak and put Arkansas on the map.
