I was born in Kansas in 1993. My mother and I moved five times before I was six. After my mom married my stepfather, we settled in Newton, Mass. I was exposed to hip-hop at an early age because my mother was and still is a big fan of the genre. She used to always play hip-hop around me. I loved music in general and would always listen to the radio and sing in the shower. I could memorize lyrics and melodies quickly; I knew the lyrics to every song on the radio.
