Poetry
The MC explains the beginnings: "I started out writing poetry when I was 11 and my grandmother found my stuff and let me know I was writing poetry. She took custody of me at age 11 and had found my notepad I had been writing my thoughts in. Most of it rhymed and I hadn’t paid attention to it."

Dancing
"From that I moved into (popping) and vibe dancing. It was started by Ozone’s son (from Breakin’). He actually started the whole vibe dancing style and it spread thru Los Angeles like wildfire. Groups like Black Eyed Peas and Jungle Brothers, Scoob and Scrap Lover, all of that was considered vibe dancing."

Rap
The MC explains his start in hip hop: "Thru that I met Trendi who was an original member of LA Symphony. He was always into rapping and I wasn't really into it. A friend of mine had a birthday party and we were all freestyling. Trendi heard the tape of the battle and asked me how long I’d been rapping. I told him I was just messing around and he said I needed to start rapping. We started a group with J Beats called Halieyoos Fishermen in 1994, started doing shows, and LA Symphony grew from there."
