My name is Michael Spearman. My stage name is Fa’Ness. I was born and raised In Pittsburgh, PA. Daineene Spearman and Michael Booker are my parents, and I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters. I have traveled every corner of my city and I am proud to say that I know many people and many people know me. I started writing music at the age of 10 years old. The first rap I ever wrote was a battle on paper against my brothers. I spent a couple of years working, and running the streets. Pretty much doing things I shouldn't have been doing like using drugs, and selling drugs and guns. I'm glad to have experienced those things, because it made me stronger and gave me street smarts. As I continued writing and recording music I was able to get a handle on my life.
