Although born in Tacoma, Washington, Ahzia Hester would go on to grow up in the state of Iowa. Here, he would discover his interest in illustration, writing and theatre. It was only until his final semester of high school that making music, particularly hip hop music, would catch his attention. A desire to roll out his own music would soon follow. Inspired by lyrics and sonics of artists like Childish Gambino, Kanye West, Pharrell, and more, his music would go on to infuse melodic production and clever lyricism to craft his own personal discography. With a few releases under his belt dating back to 2015, most recently READY.SET.GO. (2018), and now, Welcome To Nowhere (2021), time will tell what is next for the Midwest-based artist.
