Q: First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?

I ended up at a local DJ’s-Joe Stick-apartment through a mutual friend way back in 1985. Joe had microphones and asked me if I wanted to rhyme. Being a fan of rap, I figured I’d just do what I had heard on the records. I continued going up there until one of Joe’s friends introduced us to a guy-Pete- looking to record a rap group. So, in 1986, I began recording songs.
