Fleetwood has had a long journey trying to find the treasures in Hip Hop. He became a writer, rap artist, music producer, videographer, motivational speaker, and community activist. With roots in both California and North Carolina, Fleetwood embodies the best of both coasts. As much as he has a southern accent, he also has a lot of West Coast flavor. Breaded in San Francisco, he grew up in the neighborhood affectionally known to many as Fillmore a place that was called the Harlem of the West Coast because of its rich history in jazz and culture. In the days of Sugar Hill Gang, Fleetwood developed a passion for rapping after he wrote his first rhyme across the street from a cemetery where his mother was buried. Later in his life, he got accepted to Music Tech in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he received an Associate Arts Degree in Music Engineering. While he was living in Minneapolis, he produced a young talented singer known as R.L. before he became popular with the R&B group called Next. After college, and suffering from a temporary setback to the penal code system in Minnesota, Fleetwood returned to San Francisco and produced several groups, including Probable Cause (selling over 5000 CD's locally) and opened up for acts such as E-40, Notorious B.I.G., and Bone Thugs N Harmony. Fleetwood also began appearing in various films directed by local talent Kevin Epps. One film, Straight Outta Hunters Point, was highly acclaimed and received numerous awards world wide. Years later, Fleetwood went back to North Carolina and launched a music video show on cable access called the Dirty Dirty that was renamed On Da Porch. At the same time, he formed another rap group called The Foundation. Fleetwood would later come back to the Bay Area and feel his demise in Hip Hop. But suddenly a light shined over him and he discovered that the treasures he was in search of in his journey lay within himself. He has gotten involved working in the community with young people. He began volunteering for a youth program called Straight Forward Club and with the Proposition 21 Movement that focused on justice and freedom for youth in California. Today, Fleetwood is a man of God and shares his experiences about his life in and outta hip hop with others in San Quentin Prison, juvenile hall facilities and youth programs across the Bay Area.
