I began playing drums at age 3, andand age 6 was performing in my family band “The Final Touch”.We did hundreds of shows including Showtime at the Apollo. At 14 I was registered into audio engineering schoolwhere I learned how to record, make beats, mix, and master. From there I began rapping over my own beats to practice and that was all she wrote ever since.
