The Tifton, Georgia, native, born Stanley Flanders, Jr., knew at the age of five that he wanted to be a rapper. By the age thirteen, after being inspired by Lil Wayne the Student of hip-hop set up a bedroom studio, with the help of his parents, that enabled him to record and upload tracks to Soundcloud.

Only a week after that, he issued Coldhearted, an eight-track EP including his singles.

Coldhearted has moments of somber reflection on life’s events, moments of teenage-boy humor, and plenty of young-man confidence.

“2018 has been one of the best years of my life, but I learned so much about people and have been treated so grimy by some of those same people, that I don’t care anymore.”
