BAGETZ BORN AND BREAD IN HARLEM NYC, MR. KALIL THOMPSON BEGAN THE FIRST YEARS OF HIS STORY IN A PROJECTS WEST HARLEM ON BROADWAY, ALSO KNOWN AS BRICKWAY. SIMILAR TO MANY OTHER YOUNG MEN IN THE CITY, EARNING STREET SCARS AND STRIPES WASN'T THE SIMPLE WAY IT SEEMED FOR MOST. "GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN AND STANDING UP FOR MYSELF IS ALL I REALLY KNEW. MY POPS WAS DOING HIM UNTIL HE GOT MURDERED. IT WAS JUST ME AND MOM. REGARDLESS I DID WHAT I HAD TO DO AND FOLLOW WHAT I SEEN AS THE WAY OUT; B-BALL AND HUSTLING." - BAGETZ DURING THOSE YEARS OF STRESS AND PAIN, HE FOUND REFUGE THROUGH MUSIC. FROM FIGHTS AS A LAD TO NIGHTS IN THE LAB, HE HAD TO FIGHT FOR EVERYTHING AND FOR SOME REASON THE ONLY WAY TO AVOID HIS PROBLEMS WAS THROUGH MUSIC. GROWING UP A 80S BABY WITH PARTIES, BLOCK PARTIES, HOUSE PARTIES, AND JAMS IN THE PARK, IT WAS SORT OF IN MY SOUL TO LOVE MUSIC. FORTUNATELY HE FELL INTO AN UNSTOPPABLE LOVE FOR MUSIC; RECORDING HEAVY AND TWO TRAKIN AT HIS BOYS HOUSE. AFTER A COUPLE SHOWS AND PEOPLE TALKING, HE FELL TO A JAIL BID. HIS DIRT CAUGHT UP WITH HIM AND INSTEAD OF PACKING IT ALL AND GIVING UP, HE HANDLED MY DEBT TO SOCIETY AND MANAGE TO STAY ON PAGE WITH THE MUSIC. HE KEPT THE PEN SMOKING , BATTLED HIM AND THEN MADE IT BACK TO THE STREETS FREE TO FALL IN LOVE WITH MUSIC FOREVER.
