The album is a self-proclaimed memoir that chronicles his personal life of pain and sacrifice, through struggles and challenges - summed up simply - about Life!
The 27-year old rapper from Augusta, GA grew up in the small town of Rome, GA, in a community infested by elements of crime. Surrounded by the pitfalls of corruption common in inner-city neighborhoods, he witnessed many of his friends fall victim to becoming another failure of the system, in and out of revolving doors in detention homes and city prisons. Although his mother raised him and 4 other siblings as a single parent, he was always reminded by the words of his father, whom he praises for always encouraging him to work hard to make a living.
Determined not to become a statistic of his own trappings and wrongdoings on the streets, at the age of 18 he enlisted in the military as a form of escape from his environment. That decision would prove to be a good choice. Little did he know that his calling to become a hip-hop artist would be fueled by his first performance in front of a captivated audience of U.S. military troops during his deployment in Iraq. The energy of the crowd and their fascination of his live shows ignited his passion to pursue his dream of becoming a recording artist.
