Born in Long Beach, CA. in 1985, Trayvon had a rough time growing up. This fueled a lot of anger and pain throughout his childhood. As time went on and his environment became worse, Trayvon was forced to leave home and temporarily stay with friends and relatives. Being the oldest of 5 children, he took on the responsibility of helping take care of his other siblings in order to help his single mother. Because he was too young to obtain a legitimate job, he had to find other means to make ends meet. He started stealing and selling drugs. As the lifestyle and the loss of loved ones began to take a toll on him, Trayvon made the decision to stop selling drugs.
He began pursuing his education and became involved with sports. Trayvon started pursuing music seriously in his early high school years. As he watched his peers display their musical talents, Trayvon sat back and studied the craft until he felt comfortable with the skills he possessed. He gained experience with a variety of musical equipment and started learning how to create dance and hip hop beats. He gained a general knowledge of the music industry and began to show his work to people in the music business. After receiving several athletic scholarships to pursue a higher education, Trayvon's mother grew ill. Since she was the only provider for her family at the time, Trayvon had to make a decision. He chose to stay and help take care of his family. As his mother's health improved, he seized the opportunity to pursue his career in music.
Prime started studying a variety of styles of music. Staying originally fresh and continuing to live up to the name he had earned with his beats and lyrics in the community. The music industry did not offer Prime any sound advice, so he had to take matters into his own hands. He wrote, produced, and engineered his first album naming it, "I'm In the Buildin'."
Prime continues to study the art of music and strive to be the best at his craft. His main goals are making sure his family is well taken care of, making music everyone can feel, and to giving back to all the people that have helped him become who he is today. The music industry better watch out because Prime is out of hibernation and on the prowl!
