Unit was born in Mayfield, KY and raised in Fulton, KY by his mother, along with one brother and four sisters. As a child he was described by some as quiet and a bit reclusive, by others as a nerd, but his mother would say he was always trying to be around the grown folks as well as an all around good kid. His introduction to music came from his mother, however, as his interests evolved from what his mother liked into his own liking he found himself influenced by New Orleans based artists from No Limit Records and Cash Money Records.
While attending Fulton City High School, Unit participated in Y-Club, Science Club, as well as the Academic Team. He maintained a high GPA while silently harboring a strong desire to pursue his own musical career. At the age of 17, nearly five months before graduating high school, Unit penned his first rhyme. After he wrote his first rap, he immediately decided pursuing a career in the Hip Hop industry is exactly what he wanted to do.
After graduating high school in 2008, Unit set his sights in executing his dream. He released two mixtapes and gained buzz in his hometown and some surrounding cities. An artists in his own right, Unit wants nothing more than fervent success in the entertainment industry.
In 2011, Unit and his group Da Hit Squad, which consists of three other members: A1, Kollege Boi, and Yung Chu, have signed to the new upcoming record label Fliptown Records. They are currently preparing to release their first mixtape titled “The Take Over” in mid-October.
