Born and raised in Chicago Illinois, Corey Mix found out he had the ability to rap when overheard one of his class mates rhyming in his 4th grade class and for about 6 months he wrote rhymes. He found his interest had faded out being that he was too young to understand what he had just tapped into but in 8th grade he had again overheard some people rhyming at a party and he couldn’t resist the urge to jump in and battle both emcees off the top of the head. Corey won that battle and became conscious of his talent yet still he chose not to pursue it as his focus at that time was mainly in football where he desired to be a running back in the NFL.
Things changed again for Corey his freshman year in college when he attended Tuskeegee University in Alabama. He was once again introduced to hip hop through friends breakdancing and his passion for b-boying took him on many travels across the United States where he entered numerous b-boy competitions, but it wasn’t until Corey found himself at a Jack and Jill convention where, without fear, he got on stage and displayed his freestyle talent to a crowd full of people from all different areas of the Midwest. The crowd was ecstatic over his performance and people even came up to him to ask if he was signed and if he had an album dropping. This is when Corey began to take a career as an emcee serious.
