Curtis showed Scotty a few chords and he picked it up fast, so fast in fact in a matter of months, Scotty was playing piano for the youth choir at Shiloh M B Church. There he also received training from the late and great Tony Ray, Lazar Grey, Dion Wolfard, and Sylvester Harper.
Sylvester Harper connected Scotty to his long time and friend producer Earl Powell who eventually signed Scotty to his production company, Eptone. Scotty later signed a co-publishing deal with Warner/Chappell with Mike Lynn and Cameron Strang in 2011.
Ever since Scotty has been perfecting his craft and has worked and produced with the likes of Rick Ross, Do or Die, Syleena Johnson, Tweet and is featured on Twista’s latest single, “Paper Chaser” along with Blac Youngsta.

Minnesota Twins Short Stop and rising hip-hop Artist, Nick Gordon, also known as, G-CINCO, drops a brand new video titled, “My Life.”
The song was inspired by things that have recently taken place G Cinco’s life – “I’m trying to defeat the odds… a lot comes with that. A lot of people don’t see your vision they don’t believe. So they try living through you. Telling you how much you can’t do something, but in reality I can. I was pushed toward this record and really just felt the beat, everything came out so smooth because it’s all real. People think it’s easy to get distracted doing more than one thing but Ima live my life. I don’t think I can do any wrong in either thing I do… when they both make me happy I’m passionate about the life I live; which is why this song means a lot to me. I hope you all enjoy this musical experience and and all it has to offer.”
