Born Seth Holland, Vishiss was reared in the rough streets of Detroit. He found himself in and out of trouble with the law from the time he was a pre-teen. Still, he persevered through the hardships, and his survivor tales and worldview are as key to his record’s creative success as his carefully crafted rap style.

He explains: “Rappers are a dime a dozen in Detroit. Everybody there really appreciates hip-hop and it seems like everyone in Detroit can rap.
Seriously, right now I think we probably have more rappers than anywhere else in the country, and Detroit has more talent than anywhere in the

U.S. It’s always been hot. I mean, we ain’t got shit to do, ain’t got shit but the radio. That’s it. So we rap. And you’re not gonna come out of Detroit repping Detroit if you’re shitty – they won’t let you.”

Raised in the city and surrounding communities, Vishiss was reared by a single mother. He didn’t put down roots in any one place for more than a year.

This disjointed adolescence was the backdrop for his battles with juvenile delinquency, which began at the age of 12. “I was just a crazy little bastard,” he admits. It wasn’t regular kid stuff, either; he was in and out of detention centers and correctional facilities. His first run-in with the law came when he and some friends jumped another group of neighborhood kids in a street fight. Vishiss was remanded to juvenile hall for three months.

“ I was locked up the majority of my teenage years, so often that for a lot of that time, I don’t even remember where and when,” he says.
