Born in the state of Ohio, he grew up in the Neal Terrace public housing in Cleveland for most of his life. After being born in Ohio, he lived in North Carolina and Florida due to the divorce that his mother was going through with his father. The mother and son ultimately settled in Cleveland. His parents were later remarried.

He has two little brothers and mostly grew up with his grandmother, father, and mother in the household.

At the age of 11 he started experimenting with writing lyrics, but it wasn't until he heard Lil Wayne's No Ceilings that he became inspired by word play, rhyming schemes, and delivery in the art of Rap.

Growing up in his hometown, he would often be invited to several high schools to perform his music.

The film was directed and produced by rising filmmaker, Steven Caple Jr and Executive produced by Nas.

During his teenage years, he gained notoriety through his collaborations with other underground artists from his neighborhood.

By the time he turned 18, he was invited to Sway in the Morning with Sway Calloway where he was given the chance to

freestyle and to showcase his work as a rapper.

Ultimately, he passed the test from the public who listen to Sway after a majority vote declared that Ezri should be put in the "game" - that is, to be a part of the music industry as a rapper.

Later that year, he was scouted by a casting agent and was given the opportunity to be a lead actor in a feature film.

Dividing his time between being and actor and a rapper, he's had the opportunity to meet and see artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Erikah Badu work in a recording studio, thereby learning the process by prominent recording professionals. He has released songs along the way in which many are accompanied with a music video such as: "Bet that" and "Goodbye".
