For those that don’t know, I moved around a lot growing up. From the west, then to the east end of the city. I was born in Toronto, grew up in the west end of the city, Jane & Dundas area. Then I spent some time growing up in Brampton as well and did high school in Durham.
I started making music at the age of 12 & had my first performance at age 19.
What inspired your passion for music?
Just having a way to express myself and my thoughts. Growing up I never talked a lot , rapping was the most talking I’d do. & it was a way to be heard more than anything. Also things that I go through.

Drake , Tory Lanez , Fabolous , and Post Malone are a few creatives that inspire me to create but there are a lot more.
