During this time Trill Cut was in between homes, living with family relatives as well as friends of the family, due to an unstable home situation. Trill Cut’s eldest male cousin, Albert, took note of his mothers’ inability to raise him by herself coupled with his worsening behavior and distaste of authority. Knowing that Trill Cut needed a male presence in his life, Albert moved him into his residence and later they relocated to San Mateo, FL.
