Most of his time was spent getting into to trouble and being in and out of juvenile correctional facilities. Through his father he was exposed to music at a very young age. He learned to appreciate everything from the early hip hop greats to the artist of his era. Flamz was first enticed to the scene by such great artist as Big L Jay-z and Notorious BIG.
An interest in writing poetry soon evolved into flowing. Even though he had this gift he was still not focused and as a result he landed in prison as an adult doing a 4 year sentence. Upon his release in 2010 he found out that he had a 5 year old daughter that he knew nothing about. Once the paternity test came back that she was his that’s when he told himself that he was done with the streets for good and he would follow his dream through hip hop. On July 30th 2012 Flamz released his long awaiting mixtape titled The Calm And Storm which he feels is the beginning of something epic with many and bigger projects to follow.
