Pete Miles was born on the East side of Pittsburgh in a small but well known neighborhood called Garfield. Garfield was full of blossoming musical talents from theater to hip hop. Pete found his niche when his older cousin whom he had always looked up to overheard him battle rapping against a friend around the way. Winning the respect of his older cousin was more than motivation. It was the beginning of a journey, a journey that would make him the top emcee in Garfield and get him raving reviews from hip hop magazines and DJ's alike.
