I''ve been rappin'' for 9 years and love to produce tracks. I grew up listening to Kris Kross and 2Pac. When I turned 14 rap became very important to me and I formed a group under a label called "Jam Tight Records." The group''s name was "1st Born," it didn''t work. Then I formed a new group at 16 called, "Platinum Status." I met Eric and LaBryant in 10th grade; we were the perfect team. Eric wrote the hooks, LaBryant wrote the lyrics, and I produced the tracks. I admire producers like Timbaland, Dr. Dre, The Neptunes, Lil John, and Mannie Fresh. I was made for this rap game.

I moved to Houston when I was 10 year''s old. I''ve always enjoyed music. When I was 3 years old, I was Michael Jackson''s biggest fan. As I got older, Cash Money really inspired me to rap. My biggest inspiration was Lil Wayne, because with me being young, we had a lot in common. I saw a group of young talented rappers and figured I could do it. During my 9th grade year I started writing rhymes and free styling in the hallways at school. If I had to choose my favorite rapper, it would be a tie between Jay-Z and Lil Wayne. Through the years, I''ve progressed into raw talent at the age of 16.

I have been rapping since I was 12 year''s old and grew up on the North East Side of Houston, Texas. I have been seriously rapping with Platinum Status Superstars for a little over a year now. Writing all the catchy hit hooks is the qualities that I bring to the group. I admire Russell Simmons for what he has been able to accomplish in this industry and P. Diddy for making music for everyone. I respect Master P. above all because I see him as being exactly what I am when he was younger. He is a survivor, so am I. Right now I am trying to make money the right way and trying to make all of my dreams come true.
