Woop attended Sante Fe College in Gainesville, Florida and was a stellar basketball player, but his career took a hit when he was charged with attempted murder. Woop's suffered a lot of loss in his life, he explained that his step-father was shot in the head and his friend Disco Jr died after being stabbed in the stomach. 
His career came to a sudden halt in late 2015 when Woop was arrested for his involvement in a brutal robbery that left someone in need of surgery.
Not long afterwards he was put away for two years after a 2010 charge for "throwing a missile at a building" surfaced.
Woop has been musically active since being released, playing a comeback show on Easter Sunday with Plies and Bossman JD. He shared that being incarcerated gave him to write and hone his craft. He immediately embarked on a lengthyIDGAF tour after being released from jail and signed with legendary music executive L.A. Reid.
