Before Fame

He played violin in school but never really got into music until afterward. He has severe ADD, didn't do well in school because of it, and was wondering what he was going to do with his life, when he met aspiring rappers that would later become his Village 777 peers. At first, he considered the idea of Village 777 as a bit of a joke. He even called it Swag Village. But soon he was sucked into his love for rap and music and hasn't looked back.


In 2014 he was nominated for XXL's Freshman list, called an "artist to watch" by The Huffington Post, named Chicago's "best kept secret" by Revolt TV, and termed as a soon-to-be breakout artist by Chicago Reader, The Redeye, and Chicago Magazine. He performed at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas, for radio host Peter Rosenberg's showcase.

Family Life

He grew up in Hyde Park, a diverse, middle class community. He is an only child.
