Biography

Great futures spawn from humble beginnings. D’Angelo LaGrone was born in Memphis on August 3rd, 1988. Raised in the southside of Chicago since he was two, he was introduced to many styles of music from his family. Indie rock, reggae, gospel, trance, techno, ska, any other genre’s well out of the average 3-year old’s range. Around 6 was when he found hip-hop himself.

In 8th grade, D’Angelo decided to give freestyle rapping a try. Already dutifuly influenced by music, he began to create rhymes out of thin air with ease. Seeing as he had nothing to lose, he began to write raps for his close friends, putting them on voicemails & other ways they could save him. By the time he was 14, he had his first official rap notebook.

Living on the southside of Chicago brought to D’Angelo friends with the same type of passion for music. One Akeem Williamson began producing at the age of 14, and the two began rapping for fun & skill growth. It wasn’t until D’Angelo’s life took a stressful turn for the worse that he realized that his skill could get him somewhere in life.

By his senior year in high school, D’Angelo was known around as “Ace”, a rapper and producer {in training}. His first mixtape, “Royal Flush”, was formed with a hybrid of industry instrumentals & beats produced by Ace & Akeem, now named Slitta Boi. By the time Ace arrived in college, he had his heart set on a full-on rap career.
