Born Corey Talbot in Miami Shores, Florida, the producer soon after relocated to Cooper City, a suburban area of Broward County. At the age of five, Talbot began taking classical piano lessons. However, it wasn’t until he began to delve into jazz and R&B sounds that music became a catalyst for his creation.
Instead, it was sports that first commanded Talbot’s attention -- namely football and basketball. Riding to practice on a daily basis with his father, Talbot would listen to popular hip-hop and R&B songs on the radio -- the initial spark to his fuse. In elementary school he was gifted a small USB MP3, it’s only contents being Kanye WestGraduation. After that he says he began borrowing burnt CDs from his older brother, cuts coming from the likes of OutKast, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and N.E.R.D.
