Cantrell was raised in Albany, Georgia and traces his roots to the rich hip-hop culture of Atlanta. He discovered jam-skating as a creative outlet and by his teenage years, he was able to turn pro as a jam skater—joining the historical breaking crew TBB. After high school, he accepted a scholarship to play college football but says of this time that he "couldn't shake the feeling that this was not my path." After much consideration, he left to pursue a career in music & subsequently won Converse’s “Rubber Tracks” contest.
Not long after, Cantrell's music was discovered on Soundcloud by MiSCHiEF BOY and a collaboration soon formed. That work would eventually become the “Stardust 2 Angels” EP out 08.24.18 via Mass Appeal Records/UMG.
