Now this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I’ll tell you how I became a radio personality
On the South Side Chicago born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days, lol. Naw on a serious note, I was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, I graduated from Morgan Park High School where I first found my love for music by making mix tapes & selling CDs. From there, I attended Kennedy King College, and Morton College for 2 years on a basketball scholarship while getting my Associate Degree in the Arts. I also attended Graceland University in Iowa on a basketball scholarship. I then attended Chicago State University where I was mentored by the late great Devin Washington. He guided me and brought out a person in me I doubted I could ever become. I was brought into Power 92.3 under Tone & Shagg sitting in the shows everyday learning, being mentored, being guided to the point I’m at now and I thank them. Now you can catch me EVERY Saturday from 10pm-2am #LITPIT Mix Show!
