Who is Hookahman?
He was raised on the East Side of Pittsburgh, PA amongst the poverty stricken neighborhoods. Later moving to the Mon Valley area, which is also a small poverty neighborhood on the outskirts of Pittsburgh. Growing up Hookahman bounced back and forth between homes of his mom and dad and began to find solace within the streets and made them his number one priority. Hookaman always loved music. He was always into lyrical artist like KRS1, J. Cole, Beanie Siegel who are some of his top influences. With the streets taking over his life he would get a peace of mind by making beats in his home with a home studio he purchased by way of street money at the age of 14. Eventually he started writing and realized he had talent. Being the second to the youngest of four boys made him feel like the "black sheep" so he wanted to stand out. Living the street life was glorifying however short lived for him. At the age of 17 many of Hookahmans classmates and associates had fallen victim to the streets and then it hit home, Hookahman was robbed at gun point. With his life flashing before his eyes he vowed to himself if he came out of this situation unscathed he will focus on school and music.
