Rhodes grew up surrounded by music, as part of his father’s entertainment organization, The Strong Arm Family, which was founded in 1999 to provide an outlet for troubled or at risk teens in Chambersburg.
At age 12, Rhodes recorded his first song, Touchdown, and at age 15 began to take a serious interest in producing.
With his music, Rhodes tries to differentiate himself from others in the industry, which he says needs diversity. “Don’t get me wrong, these new rappers turn up, but there’s too many of the same sounding sounds. The same cadence, the same everything,” he said.
He said his music is original, appealing to a diverse fan base. “I don’t want to be stuck into one category,” he said, “My fans are pretty diverse, which makes me think I’m doing something right. So far, everyone likes almost all of my music. I’ve always had amazing feedback on my instrumentals, but once I actually started writing songs, people have been really supportive.”
