" I never knew I had a musical talent. It was a time when I didn’t have a clue what an 808 was. The Way everything came along as far as me traveling to different states, meeting people who’s been in the game for years….it’s a huge blessing! I remember growing up listening to Lex Luger, Metro Boomin & Southside beats. After I saw a video of Soulja Boy showing off his skills on FL Studios, I downloaded the program and was like……WTF IS THIS SHIT? LOL!!!
I never watched a YouTube Tutorial on how to make beats…EVER! My brother "Montana Corleone" taught me 80% of how to use FL Studios. He basically taught me the basics, which gave me what I needed to master the program.
The first hit single I produced in my city was "Fallout" by Wreckin Squad. I Remember Just hearing people ride up and down my street; walking through the halls in my school listening to the song but nobody knew I produced it lol, it was crazy. The feeling was Epic and PRICELESS. A lot of people still to this day knows that it was me who produced Fallout for Wreckin Squad. I loved it.
