He began rapping at a very early age and at the age of 13 he and his older cousin started making beats. They realised that it was hard to find instrumentals ro rap over so they made their own.
He was never interested in any hobbies, such as sports or games so all his free time was spent om making music.

At the age of 16 he became a producer for a vocal hip-hop group and after this was a succes, he started producing for other artists in the area.
That was the crucial point because he realized that he could make himself a career in this branche, do what he likes and earn money.
The influences in his music creation were Shawty Red (an American producer who worked with Snoop Dogg and Gucci Mane) and Drumma Boy, one of the most talented producers and composers in hip-hop and R&B.
He was very hardworking and after he made his name known he produced a single “Rocks” for rapper YC and the single came to No. 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. The single boosted up both the careers of Sonny Digital and YC.
