Pro decided that he wanted to become a musician after becoming very fond of his older sisters poetry readings. He went from practicing in his room every night to having daily freestyle battles with his classmates until pure confidence was obtained.
Now a sophomore at the University of Memphis, Pro is pursuing a bachelors degree in Music Business. Not only does Pro plan on taking over the rap world, he plans on doing it with a boss-like mindset. Educating himself on the music business, he is working on opening his own publishing company which will be named Mockingbird Musik. Three mixtapes have already been released in the past four years, but Pro claims that his upcoming Spring release, To Kill a Mockingbird, will be the best yet.
