1993 is when he fell in love with HIP-HOP purchasing his first album, 36 Chamber's by Wu-Tang Clan. He then proceeded to buy more American music a few times a week adding to his collection.

His biggest influence came from the sound and vibe that the West Coast were creating at that time. The South is where everything came together musically for him. Influenced by Scarface, Willie D, MJG, Eightball, OutKast, Three Six Mafia, K-Rino, Z-Ro, S.U.C, and Slim Thug just to name a few.
