He was born in L.A., lived in Las Vegas until the age of 14, then finished high school and college in Louisiana. Coach conducted a passion for music at a young age after his mother’s death. He listened to artist such as 2pac and Snoop Dogg using their music as an outlet from internal wounds.
Coach eventually understood the concepts of songs, subject matter and personalities. He decided to go that route. He has made 3 mixtapes in the past building a loyal fan base in his local areas. Coach’s first mixtape, “Da Make Over” was pushed the summer of 2005 with only the support of his older cousin Oliver. Their goal was to connect with the public to expose his talent.

The mixtape was put in the hands of producers such as, Big Phazz, Ishmael Jones, and DJ Headkrack just to name a few. Ishmael Jones reached out to Coach to give him his opinion and critique him. His motivational words were as said, “The lyrics are there, there’s no doubt about it. But you need to focus on making more songs or trying to make hits because that’s the only way you’re going to get a deal.” So Coach more importantly listened and took his advice and got back in the lab.
