Raised in Lower Merion, PA, Howard's musical passion was ignited at age 7, when he jammed on his first drum set. Four years later, it was with the legendary TR808 beat machine, that led him to master the art of production. At 15, Russell was discovered by Chris Swartz, the CEO of Ruffhouse Records, who introduced him to great artists like Cypress Hill and The Fugees. With the unique opportunity to witness these hip-hop legends in their prime, Russell was compelled to make his own mark in the rap game.
