Being involved in the streets since a young age, being locked up and losing multiple people close to him Mac realized his gift in music was the way to move forward and live a different life. He started writing his own songs at the age of thirteen and began recording songs at 15.

Listening to artists like Yo Gotti, 36 Mafia, Playa Fly and Gangsta Black as well as Tupac helped Mac master his craft in mixing multiple styles to create his own becoming a versatile artist.
In 2017, Mac met the brothers in his group THC “The Hustle Crew.” Current members include GMoney and Crizstyle Black. Through trials and tribulations they kept pushing. Together they created 3 albums.
