The development of his unique style is the result of his early musical influences. Growing up Duffie was always surrounded by different forms of music. His mother introduced him to a wealth of music as a child, all of which influenced his development.
Duffie’s musical journey did not end with his mother’s influence. Growing up in “Gotham City” the music that permeated the neighborhood was rap. It was here that he developed his musical tastes and interests, all of which have had a profound influence on the direction his musical journey has taken.
From age 15-19 Duffie lived a hard fast life, driven by the desire to make money. A series of unfortunate events landed him in prison doing a five year bid. It was time spent there where he decided to make a decision which he never looked back from. He decided to pursue a rap career full time.
After realizing that making music was his main goal, he began to showcase his talent to local venue in Orlando, making sure that his name and music were being heard. He is noted for his realness and unique style that he has brought to scene, and his popularity has now begun to grow.
