Growing up on the West side of Detroit, Seige was raised by his single mother and older sister. As a child, Seige was a fan of Hip-Hop music listening to artists such as LL Cool J, KRS One and Black Moon. With a grandfather who played saxophone with Dexter Gordon and John Coltrane, a father who played the drums, and two aunts who toured the world singing gospel, Seige was destined to follow in his family’s footsteps which is evident as to why he embarked on the journey to become a rapper.

In 2005, Seige transitioned from Detroit to Los Angeles with a mindset of taking over the music industry. In spite of his determination to win and get on, Seige fell on hard times while in Los Angeles and hit rock bottom. After being homeless for a month, Seige landed a job as a sales associate at Guitar Center. Seige produced beats during lunch breaks while at work hoping for means of income. Not knowing God had a greater plan, he made great impressions with singer, actor and New York Times Best-selling author, Tyrese Gibson. While Tyrese was in Guitar Center, Seige’s co-worker pressed play on an unfinished track that Seige created. Tyrese heard the track, immediately contacted Seige and the rest is history.

Seige was originally one of Tyrese’s producers called “The Frontline Boyz” coming up in the ranks with the likes of songwriter James Fauntleroy, 1500 or nothing, HIT BOY and many others. Working with Tyrese has played a major part in Seige’s professional production career taking him from a 500 dollar beat guy to a 5 figure beat maker. “The people he put me around granted me access to so many opportunities. He plays a serious role in my life and in everything I do,” said Seige of Tyrese.
Since the magical door opened in 2005, Seige has worked with Dr. Dre , Snoop Dogg, T-Pain, Too Short, Kurupt, Marsha Ambrosius, and Busta Rhymes, just to name a few.
