Born in 1992 Plato Max (real name) Orlando Favors was raised in a two bed apartment with seven siblings in a village jus west of Chicago, IL called Maywood. With his mother always working, father on and off drugs and older brothers in the streets Plato quickly drew to music as an outlet. He was inspired by artist like nas, az, jadakiss jay z and lil Wayne off their ability to tell stories about any situation especially his situation. It was not until Plato was in the 9th grade when he started taking music serious. Writing on the daily basis and recording off a lap top. In 2011 he linked up with his long time friend and god brother Tre woods (real name) (Clifford Grant) from there the journey began.
