Outside of school he connected with his local church singing and playing instruments for Sunday sermons.

In his sophomore year of high school, Mr. Beatz alongside his two best friends began producing tracks with the only equipment available to them, a Yamaha DJX and a tape recorder they used to dub tapes over one another creating multi-tracks. Initially the passion for producing was merely for personal gratification until several friends and family members’ encouragement inspired him to pursue his passion professionally.
