Primetime was born July 22, 1994 in the Southeast region of the Nation's Capital. He's always had an affinity for writing since he was younger. In his middle/high school days at parent teacher conferences his teachers always told his mother how great of a writer he was and if he ever thought about doing poetry. At age 13 Primetime started rapping, but didn't take it seriously until his junior year of high school. In 2012, he had his first performance at "The Let Out" in Philadelphia. That year he attended Delaware State, and a year later he was known on campus for performing. His biggest performance thus far was at Delaware State's Homecoming, he opened up for Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, Shy Glizzy, and August Alsina. He dropped his first mixtape 7/22/14 entitled "Prime Suspect" on Spinrilla.
