Born to Linda Nevels and Jerrold Brown, creativity was embedded in her genome. Imerald Brown’s parents were both creative.
“I remember my mother had a way of writing words, and my father coming up with his very own sayings and songs." It was her older brother who influenced her interest in Hip-Hop, while her older cousin wrote her first rap when Imerald was a pre-teen. Growing up, Imerald was influenced by her older brother Deshajn and cousin Jay. “They were into music and I looked up to that. I'd always wanted to get into the industry, but I didn't know how to go about doing it. There was just something about my family that drove me into it.”
