I was born in New York City. The year was 1986. A good year if you remember correctly. The Mets won the World Series, Mike Tyson won his 1st heavy title. The classics The Bridge and South Bronx were released. It was a good year for the city. With this optimism coming out of the city I was poised for something greater. This along with my upbringing, great friends, and one of the most diverse neighborhoods in NY, The Lower East Side, I had a good start. However it was Hip Hop/RNB/House/Reggae that had me truly inspired. I guess I would consider myself a 2nd generation listener to "Urban Music" if you would call it that. My parents loved all that was Hip Hop/Soul/RNB and just about everything under the sun. My attention was on Urban Music since young.
