“Griot,” and “Artist Storyteller” are how he describes himself. 

Lloyd Gregory Wade was born in Monroe, Louisiana in 1975, the second of four children to Lloyd and Josephine Babers Wade.  His fifth grade teacher, Ms. Dimmer, found his notebook full of cartoon drawings. Concerned and impressed, she enrolled him into the Louisiana “Gifted and Talented Arts” Program. This program would infuse an otherwise shy child with the tools needed to be called an artist.
