Born in the Bronx New York City and currently has been residing in Phoenix Arizona over the last 14 years. Hip Hop came natural for Penny starting his journey through the culture at a young age B Boying and learning different styles of graffiti. Hip Hop became an outlet from the negativity and violence that surrounded his community. Through his journey he found writing music and becoming an MC was the purest form of expression and the outlet he was looking for. When he moved to Phoenix Arizona Penny decided to peruse music full time. Winning local MC battles and networking with the phoenix urban community.
