After struggling in high school to maintain a passable GPA, Grotesque attended a university in Chicago and Rock Island to play football. After his first two seasons were cut short, due to season ending injuries, he decided it was time to come to terms with reality with his passion for a career in football. Grotesque hung up his cleats, dropped out of classes, and turned to his musical hobby to pass time. He bought a USB microphone, Cakewalk recording software, and spent the majority of his time inside his $100 bedroom ‘studio’. After working on his own music for three years, while also studying successful artists to see what seperated them from the pack, he realized his musical talent was vastly improving and getting better than many artists he was hearing on the radio and internet. This is when he decided it was time to turn his hobby into his career.
