Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
Growing up in New york city, I learned early on that most people only care about themselves and nothing else. This lead to a strong sense of selflessness and made me open my eyes to the atrocities in this world and the problems that face our generation. I grew up in a middle class family however an influx of narcotics lead to my parents becoming addicted to heroin while I was still young. My other siblings grew up surrounded by the benefits of a wealthy adolescence however I was too young to remember this and only have memories of my families struggles and downfall. I eventually stopped going to school around the time my mother had left my family, This lead me to become very depressed and my father had turned to drinking to cope with his loss. I felt responsible for this and as all my siblings left us me and my father stuck together. His drinking got worse and I couldn’t psychologically handle the situation so I turned to drugs. I started taking anything I could find and ran away from home to trap out of my friends crib in Brooklyn. I stayed there for 2 years, I began selling and stealing drugs to survive .During this time I began writing stories and lyrics, these works eventually became ritual as I used them as an escape to create my own world.
