Originally from Burlington, NC, TugawarVonta started rapping at 16 years old. Early on TugawarVonta had a child and even got locked up after taking the police on a high speed chase in 2017. This changed a lot in his life, around this same time he had his second child. According to Vonta “my mama ended up selling her car and put a lot of money up for me to get out, one thing bout my mama she ain’t goin let her kids sit in jail”.
After serving time TugawarVonta started taking music more serious. Music became a positive outlet. After networking in his city, TubawarVonta found himself hanging out at Houze Studio every weekend. Shortly after finding this love for music, Vonta lost his grandfather and grandmother. This made him take music even more serious. Vonta noted, “my Grandpa always believed in me an: say that I was the key out of here.”
