I was born November 12th and abandoned by the Delta river for almost a month with no warmth, nourishment or human contact. When I was discovered and brought to the New Haven Nursery on December 16th I had Bilateral otitis perforations. In other words, I was born with ears that weren’t normal and to this day I am partially deaf in my left ear. However, I make music and I love what I make, it just comes to me. Most would say I have an aural handicap. I like to think I was born with a gift due to a medical condition. And Conspiracy Theorists like to think some entity intervened and gave me the power to make music. People who don’t enjoy my music think ear damage is exactly why I can’t rap or make music. You decide what you want, my decision was made in 1992 when is started making music. When you listen to me, you’re listening to the music of a half deaf person.
