Penning his first song when he was only nine years old, the young artist started rapping for fun: I wasnt serious about rapping at first, but people kept telling me that I was good and I should pursue it Following this advice, the young rapper began to study Jay-Z, DMX, Jadakiss, T.I. and other renowned rappers in hopes of learning how to be more lyrical. His homework paid off and by the age of 12, Young Boy Tizzy improved his rapping abilities and became a serious contender on the local rap scene.
