Born on January 6, 1986 in the Sunnyside section of Houston, TX, a young man would eventually come to be known as the emerging rap superstar named Short Dawg. Learning the art of freestyle from battling emcees at an early age helped hone the skills that would ultimately lead him to Hip-Hop impresario, Russell Simmons. He was also signed to the Detroit - Based label, Dirty Glove Entertainment, alongside Blade Icewood, Street Lord Juan, and K Doe aka K Deezy. Although young Short Dawg is wise beyond his years, of which he attributes to maintaining an unbreakable focus by staying in school, acquiring the knowledge he would need to keep him sharp but also learning how to balance the streets with the books.
Influenced by the likes of hip-hop greats such as Jay-Z, Scarface, Tupac & Jadakiss, Short Dawg prepared himself to join these greats in the history books by continually sharpening his skills in music and even theatre to create the swagger that will lead him to the doorsteps of greatness by combining a lyrical assault with infectious, melodic hooks over speaker rattling beats.
