“I was born and raised in Zimbabwe and I moved to America when i was 14. I grew up listening to a lot of Oliver Mtukudzi and Brenda Fassie etc, just the Legends of Southern African music from the 80′ and 90′s then my older brother Prince introduced me to hip-hop when I was 8 years old. So when i started producing music I always tried to fuse the two into something unique. After high school I chose not to play college soccer and instead I moved to Tampa to go to school for music.”
