Treadway was a young teenager who fell in love with Rap after hearing a mix tape featuring Grand Master Flash, Kool Herc.
He met with the Transcendental Alliance (a group of rhymers hailing from New England) in 2001. They lived a free-spirited life, performing together and being creative in coffeehouses.

Tragedy Has Inspired Souleye’s Music
