So as a youth Babe Bubba had to learn fast how to defeat and overcome trails and tribulations. “I grew up in the hood with my mom’s and pop’s my brother and sister, and once my pop’s left us me and my brother had to become men at an early age.” Eager to fill his father’s shoes he quit school and turned to the streets. Destine to help his mother make ends meet he turned away from everything he strived to be and put his all into the streets. “When I was coming up I had a passion for dancing and beat boxing hip hop in general, and when I was in the streets it was always in the back of mind that’s what I wanted to do. But the streets is what kept food on the plate so it was more of a survival decision.” Going thru a love triangle with his dreams and the streets Babe Bubba eventually settled with his dreams.
