Hylton says that he always knew that he’d be involved in hip hop in some capacity and is glad that he followed his dreams.  “I didn’t know what it was,” he told me on Scoop B Radio. “But I knew it was going to have something to do with music. It’s not like you go to college and say: ‘okay I want to get into the music business.’ I think my life and background prepared me for it.”
