By age 14, he was offered meetings for contract negotiation, with major labels after performing at local talent showcases, in front of music executives and A&R's, at this time he was in a two man group called Nitro and Random. After the group split up, Nitro began considering becoming a solo artist, he was strongly influenced by Public Enemy, Run DMC, Rahkim, 2Pac, Ice Cube, Nate Dogg, and The Hot Boyz, to name a few he had to find a lane all of his own. So he started working with local underground producers, engineers even local underground artist, using the environment he grew up in, from a child into a man as a writing tool. Nitro has a style which is his to own often speaking on effects, of the crack era after its peak, and street knowledge passed down from elders, and mentors. Several verses express experience, growing up with members of his family, being incarcerated, shot, drug addicts, and dealers. Nitro used becoming a teenage father right out of high school, as motivation to make a way for his family, this explains why he kept music as a back up plan, displaying true dedication, and, love of song writing, from years of experience with music.
