Master P inspired him to start rapping
Coming from the south, it's not surprising to hear that Rashad was heavily into rappers like UGK growing up. However, it's actually Master P that the emcee cites as the main hip-hop artist who inspired him to start rapping. In an interview with See Beyond Genre, Isaiah stated:
"I grew up on UGK, but I was more of an 8ball & MJG, Outkast, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and Master P fan. Master P is really the guy who made me want to rap. I was a stan for him as a kid."
His number one musician? Ms. Erykah Badu:
"Erykah Badu is my life though. Her music is my favorite out of everything. Every album. World Wide Undergroud is my favorite."
