His initial interest was in football which he maintained until he turned 21. All his teens he served a gang in his vicinity with the same laws as the other criminal gangs had. Lately, he was found selling drugs, specifically marijuana, which caught him in the prison. At the same time, he was also writing the verses, but he never took it as a serious profession.
