Trajik1 did not start off as a rap fan. At the age of 4 he would sing Mexican Corrido's to his grandparents. Aniceto Molina, Rocio Durcal, Los Bulkis, were in heavy rotation in his household. In the 4th grade while scanning through radio stations he landed on 102.5 KDON and heard a song that would change his life. 2Pac's "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" was the anthem of the summer. In Middle School his uncle began teaching him the history of Bay Area Hip-Hop and introduced him to RBL Posse, E-40, Too $hort, and many more. In 2002, he began recording with Rob Payne, as the group 408 Bomberz, and he has yet to quit.
