Plies Biography and Early Life

Plies was born on the 1st of July, 1976 as Algernod Lanier Washington in Fort Myers, Florida, United States of America.

Plies unlike most rappers didn’t have much problem growing up as he was born in an average family and had all the basic things he needed at that young age provided for him.

During his early days he had no interest in music or even arts, all he did was go out on the street to play football.

His ambition as of then was to go to school as his family had wanted, finish high school with good grades, enroll at a university and then after that get a job or pursue his football career.

But unknown to him destiny had other greater and better plans for him.

Plies loved football and sprinting to the extent that whenever he was not in school or at the sport center playing football all he did was fix his eyes on the television watching football matches.

As a kid whose aspirations was to be a great footballer he admired a lot of footballers and was just fascinated about the game.

His love for the game of soccer even grew the more after he enrolled at the Forts Myers senior high school while growing up with his family in East Dunbar.

It was at this point that he concluded that all he wanted in life was to become one of the greatest football players in America.

This motivated him to join the school’s football team where he played as a defender and excelled in the position.

According to this rapper, while he was playing in that defensive position, it was very difficult if not impossible for any attacking player to get past him as he was very agile and muscular back then.

Even as much as he loved and adored the game of soccer, he did excellently in school as he didn’t allow his love for football to distract his studies in any way.

As a defensive player, Plies caught the eye of many admirers including the team coach who now made him a regular player in the team and he was later named the best defender for various seasons especially between 1995 and 1997 when he was simply incredible on the football pitch.

Being a football Maestro and also intelligent and good looking brought a lot of female admirers to him as he quickly became a guy most high school girls wanted to hang out it because he was also very cool.

Plies had all the good qualities to beat off any competition to any girl as he was energetic, hilarious, good on the football pitch, muscular like most girls love, good looking and he was also a perfectionist when it came to dressing.

When it comes to looking good and dressing very well, then Plies was the young man for you and that was exactly why he was named the best dressed male student of his high school and was subsequently crowned the Homecoming king that year.

All these brought up more admirers for him as Plies quickly became the teachers’ favorite, team coach favorite and the girls’ favorite.

Plies successfully completed his high school at the Fort Myers Senior High School with good grades and quickly enrolled at the Miami University where he continued his football career.

But in the Miami University Football team, he now changed from his usual position which was more defensive to a wider player.

During his first year at the University, his footballing talent was noticed by everybody including the team coach and fellow team mates and this made the coach to make him a first team regular.

At this point Plies was certain that it was only a matter of time for him to complete his University, graduate and finally get to become a professional football player as he had always dreamt of.

Plies excelled in all he did and it only got better for him in the capacity of Rookie where he covered 69 yards, making 9 receptions.

He trained harder, even sacrificed a bit of his studies because he was now very serious with his football career and was giving it his all.

The next season his hard work and intensive training paid off as he covered 262 yards, thereby making 25 receptions and 2 touch downs.

All these achievements were like no other and skyrocketed his position in the sport team.

Plies was now the new sport sensation as people couldn’t help but consistently watch him display his amazing talents on the sport arena.

Not only did Plies earn praises from his team mates, coaches and supporters but he earned applauds from the whole school and he was already famous as an athlete in the Miami University.

But it was during his final year in the University that Plies sport career and dreams began to fall apart as he had a very poor run that season.

Unlike the Plies whom everyone including the team coach and team mates knew he completed just 43 yards making only five receptions.

After successfully playing and making a name for himself even with a single bad season, he moved to the University of Central Florida.

But it was in this University that Plies football dream and ambitions hit the rocks and quickly turned in to that of music.

While at the University of Central Florida he mingled with a lot of people who were in to music and he quickly got influenced.

That same year he began to think a lot about music and all of a sudden he decided to try out some lines which he did and it was all amazing and fascinating to him.

When he went home, he told his brother who was then a bit in to music that he had almost no interest in football again that his mind was now focused on making music especially rap.

It was at this point that all of Plies football dreams, ambitions and aspirations were forgotten by him as he now decided to go into music full time.

Instead of Plies as usual going to train at the school’s football stadium, he would spend all day writing music lines which he will then later go to the music studio to record.

This new venture fascinated Plies and he just loved the feeling of hearing his own voice echoing on tapes.

This new change surprised everyone including his friends, team mates, team coach and his football admirers.

But according to him, it wasn’t his fault, it was just destiny calling and he had to answer.

This rapper was born Mario Mims on the 19th of May, 1981 and grew up in the city of Memphis, Tennessee which is in the United States of America.

Yo Gotti Biography and Early Life

Yo Gotti was born on the 19th of May, 1981 and was named Mario Mims by his parents.

He grew up in the Ridgecrest apartment in the Frayser neighborhood which is located in Memphis, Tennessee.

Right from his childhood days, he has always been a huge fan of music and growing up on the streets of Memphis even made him to understand more about the craft.

He would always go to school asking his classmates about the latest songs which he would then write down and whenever he comes back from school he would look for a way to buy the CDs.

As time went on Yo Gotti became very familiar with a good number of songs which were sung by his favorite rappers back then which include Lil Yo and a host of others.

As a high school student he was already a bit famous because at that early age in his life he already knew what he wanted to become and focused his mind on achieving it no matter what.

This rapper began to build a huge fan base for himself in both his neighborhood and school as he would always perform at every single opportunity he gets, he always performed most of Lil Yo’s songs especially Youngsta on a come up which was very popular back in the late 90’s.

His love for music made him to always skip classes as he would prefer to stay in quiet places where he would pen down his songs.

After writing his lyrics which were all inspired by living on the streets, he would then begin to hustle for the money which he would use to record it at a local music studio in his neighborhood.

As a kid Yo Gotti didn’t have it easy at all as his family was almost handicapped financially and that is why he saw music as the only means to better his life and not to end up like his parents.

Yo’s love for music didn’t affect his studies that much except for the fact that he would sometimes skip classes so that he would find quiet places to write down his rap lyrics and then use the money meant for buying books to pay his way into the local studio where he would then record his songs.

Yo Gotti did all these without his family members knowing especially his parents as they were just hustlers and wished for their son to go to school, get good grades, attend a University and make something out of his life.

In school even though he was mostly known for his music talent, but he also excelled in his academics.

He successfully completed High School with good grades and then enrolled at the South West Tennessee Community College where he studied Business Administration.

While in college, which of course is a wider world, Yo Gotti was able to meet and socialize with people who had almost the same talent and dreams as his and it was at this point that his rap career officially took off.

But before then Yo Gotti had already begun his music journey at the age of 14, which was in 1996 when he remixed one of Lil Yo’s songs Youngsta on a come up which he was popularly known for.

Due to his hustling attitude, he was able to work with a number of producers and released a single in 2000 titled From da Dope Game 2 da Rap Game.

This single did excellently, even though it didn’t go all that far in terms of popularity, but at least it made the world know that there was a rapper who was climbing up the ladders of success and his name was Yo Gotti.

His third single came out in 2001 which he titled Self Explanatory, the song featured a lot of other well-known stars and some of them include DJ Sound and a number of others.

The song was what pushed Gotti’s fame a little bit higher and after this song was released his low fan base grew a bit higher and he capitalized on it by organizing shows and performing at night clubs and parties.

But his biggest hit was his 4th song titled Life which was released in May 2003 which featured Kia Shine, Lil Jon and Lil Fip.

This song after it was released quickly skyrocketed this rapper’s fame to a whole different level.

Who is Parker Schnabel?

Park Schnabel is a reality star on Discovery channel’s show known as Gold Rush and he made his way to fame while on the show.

The reality show is all about the life of gold diggers and people mining gold and other mineral resource in Alaska.

Parker Schnabel Biography and Early Life

Parker Schnabel was born on the 22nd of July, 1994 in Haines, Alaska.

This reality star grew up with his brother Payson and there family members are all into mining.

Parker’s parents Nancy and Roger Schnabel were all miners likewise his grandfather who is known as one of the most successful miners in the history of Alaska.

While growing up both Parker and his brother Payson were all fascinated with the family’s tradition of mining and just wanted to be like there family members.

As a kid Parker was very much attached to his grandfather who in turn thought him almost everything there is to know about mining and how to make a success out of it.

Roger just like his son Parker grew up being very enthusiastic about construction and mining and today he is a miner and also the owner of South East Road Builders.

Due to his close relationship with his grandfather John Schnabel, he was able to become the manager of the family’s mining company known as Big Nugget Mine at the young age of 16 and has retained the position till date.

During his younger days, Parker Schnabel was never a fan of school as he would prefer to visit his grandfather’s mines and discuss about his favorite topics with his brother Payson and his grandfather.

Parker was actually closer to his grandfather than to his biological parents.

As a kid Parker would always try to fit into his grandfather’s shoes by trying his best to make vital decisions and controlling miners that were as old as his father.

At that young age, he built up a reputation for himself among the miners who always called him Young Master.

Parker maintained a very good relationship with his grandfather who was the founder of the family’s mining company until he died in 2016 at the age of 96 after a long battle with cancer and other minor health issues.

Apart from the fact that he grew up wanting to be a miner, he also grew up being very fond of cars and could already drive at the age of 15.

Parker spent a lot of his time learning all there is to learn about mining and no wonder he has recorded a tremendous level of success in his career so far.

Parker Schnabel Career and Rise to Fame

Right from the day he began to understand what the world was all about, Parker always had a thing for mining because every single person in his family was a miner and he wanted to follow in their footsteps.

One major factor that contributed to the success of this young man’s mining career is the fact that he was very close to his grandfather who is regarded as one of the most successful miners in Alaska.

His grandfather taught him everything there is to know about mining, but he passed away in 2016 at the age of 96.

As a kid he would always read books about mining and watch videos of his grandfather’s miners at work over and over again.

In fact at that young age he was already addicted to mining but he couldn’t mine because he was still very young.

School didn’t favor him at all, because he had no fun going to school and didn’t enjoy his classes at all.

Instead of listening in classes, he would prefer to read books about mining.

Due to his fascinations and want to learn more about mining, he would always ask his grandfather questions and virtually follow him around till he gives him a suitable answer.

This made his grandfather to become very fond of him and over time they formed a very close bond and both of them became very close to each other.

According to Parker, he was much closer to his grandfather than he was to his own biological father.

As a teen, Parker would skip classes only to end up following his grandfather to the mine sites, but his parents were against this, but his grandfather being very close to him would always support him and this even made their relationship grow stronger.

During his vacations, he would spend all day at his grandfather’s gold mine learning all there is to learn from his grandfather and his workers and this encouraged his grandfather to even teach him the more.

Due to the level of respect he gained among his grandfather’s miners, he quickly became popular amongst them and they nicknamed him Young Master.

At that young age he was able to control the miners who were almost the same age with his father, make tough decisions and even caution them if they made any mistakes.

With his grandfather, Klondike John Schnabel, who himself was a legendary gold explorer seeing all this traits, he made him the manager of his mining company Big Nugget Mines just at the young age of 16.

As a manager, he oversaw the company’s operations and under him with the tutoring of his grandfather who was now retired the company saw a boost in profits and recorded more success.

As he finished high school, he used all the money which were meant for his college education to establish his own mining company.

Even though his parents were shocked at knowing what he did, but over time they became very proud of him because his own mining company became a success.

With his college money he was able to hire workers, establish his own company, and dug up 1029 ounces of gold which was worth over $1 million at that time.

Parker Schnabel later enrolled into college where he studied geology and mining because those are the only two things that were of interest to him since he was a kid.

This miner wasn’t famous at all till he became a cast member of Discovery channel’s reality show Gold Rush, which he debuted in its first season.

On the show he has recorded a lot of success, but some of his best moments so far was in the fourth season when he found 1029 ounces of gold which was worth over a million dollars at that time.

The next season he found an incredible 3362 ounces of gold also worth an incredible $4 million.

Since the reality show began, Parker Schnabel has reportedly mined over $15 million worth of gold and it would only increase with time.

Parker’s career suffered a big blow back in 2016, when his lifelong teacher, mentor and grandfather passed away.

But after a while of languishing in sorrow, he quickly bounced back paying more attention to his career.

Parker Schnabel lost his grandfather Klondike John Schnabel on the 18th of March, 2016, he died while asleep after years of struggling with cancer.

After his much success on the Gold Rush reality show, in 2017 he announced that he would be launching his own reality show called Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail.

Kodak was raised in Golden Acres, which is a public housing project in Pompano Beach alongside his brother whose name is John Dieuson.

Due to the fact that he grew up in a public neighborhood, at a very young age he was already mischievous and was already living a street kind of lifestyle as he would regularly pick fights with other boys on the streets of Golden Acres, skip classes and follow a group of street boys who had a lot of bad influence on him.

But even as a kid, Kodak Black had already fallen in love with music as back then he was ready to do anything just to please his mother so that he can allow him to watch and listen to his favorite songs especially that of his favorite rappers who were Chief Keef and Boosie Badazz.

As a kid, what made Kodak Black happy the most was whenever he listened to a rap song on radios or even watching it on television in his house or at his friends place.

This continued until the young Dieuson Octave finally got addicted to music, especially the rap genre.

At that time, he would always use the money meant for his clothes and school books to buy wall papers of his favorite rappers which he would use to decorate his room.

Already known for his many mischiefs, Kodak Black didn’t have it all that easy in school as he would prefer to skip classes or if he manages to attend a class he would end up sleeping off while the teacher would be teaching.

All this earned him a bad reputation, brought more detention classes for him and made a lot of teachers and fellow students to dislike him.

But the young Kodak couldn’t care any less as he was his own man.

At the age of 8 while still in elementary school, Kodak Black began to write his own rap lyrics which were songs from his favorite artistes which he would then remix by adding and removing a few verses from it.

After writing this songs, he would sing them all to himself before taking them to school the next day where he would then rap it all to his friends.

At that little age, due to his many troublesome ventures and incredible talent in rap, the young Kodak began to pull in a lot of admirers to himself and it was at this point that his school mates and teachers began to see the immense talent he possessed.

With him showcasing his awesome rap talent, one of his friends who was a bit older than him talked him into trying to record one of his songs in a record studio and he agreed to it.

After being convinced by his friend to try out recording some of his songs at a studio, he went to a local trap house in his neighborhood to record one of his songs, according to the rapper, he loved everything about the trap house, especially the vibes.

This now encouraged him to write more rap lyrics which he would then go to the recording studio to record almost every day after school.

But this worsened his behavior, because at that very young age, while going to the studio everyday even without the knowledge of his parents he began to associate with a group of boys who were much older than him.

This group of boys were all into drugs and crime and of course this affected the rapper negatively as he became influenced by them in no time.

Every day after school, the first things he would do was to go to the studio to record his songs but while doing so a gang of street boys who were always in the studio became his very good friends and within a short period of time he began to move around the neighborhood with them and did almost everything which they did.

And all this included smoking weed, stealing and burglary.

He now became much more violent and would get into lots of fights more than he previously used to.

All this things caused him more harm than good as he was rusticated from school in his 5th grade for fighting a boy which he almost killed.

After being kicked out of school, Kodak didn’t tell anyone about it, but his mother Marcelene Octave would later find out, and this caused a lot of problems between the mother and son.

Kodak Black didn’t have any plan of returning to school anytime soon, so instead he got more involved and focused on his rap career.

But the bad influence on him from his street friends was now so much on him and with the much success of his music career also came much more involvement in crime, violence and gang fights.

Even as a kid, Kodak Black always had his eye set on making it big in life because he loved money a lot and just wanted to live a large life like most of the rappers he was used to seeing.

As a kid he loved cutting papers into money sizes which he will then fling up and down imitating what rappers do in their music videos and all thanks to his hard work and dedication to his craft, he is now living that dream life of his.

After he got kicked out from school, the very young and immature Kodak knew that the only way he was going to make something reasonable out of his life was If he worked extremely hard on his rap career as he had no plans of returning back to school and he did so.

Due to his dark skin color and many of his mischievous acts, he earned the Lil Black nick name for himself and was popularly known in his neighborhood by this name.

For a while everyone knew him by this name, but he didn’t like it because of the fact that there were many Lils in the rap industry, so he needed a name that was very unique.

At first he adopted J Black as his stage name.

But the Kodak Black name came after he created his Instagram account with the name and from then onwards he decided to be going by the name.

Kodak Black Career and Rise to Fame

Kodak always knew what he wanted in life right from his early days and he gave it his all especially after he got kicked out from school in his 5th grade.

Having no other option, at the age of 12 he turned into a professional rapper by joining a rap group in his Florida district neighborhood known as the Brutal Youngnz group.

But this rap group was more of a gang and that made Kodak not to work on much songs as he was always being distracted by them.

With the rap group, he got into more fights, smoking and every other available crime which didn’t add much to his rising career.

Because of all these, he decided to quit the group, even though it brought up a lot of problems, but being a stubborn person, he couldn’t care less and did as it pleased him.

He would later join The Kolyns which of course was far better than his former group.

Under this group he got more serious with his career, even though he got into fights as usual.

Kodak Black’s first ever mixtape was debuted by him in the year 2013 at the age of 16 which was titled Project Baby.

The mixtape didn’t make much waves, because apart from his local fans in the Florida neighborhood, almost no one cared to listen to a mixtape by a 16 year old boy who for sure didn’t even know what he was doing.

But all these didn’t get to Kodak Black as he kept on working hard and dedicating all his time to make his upcoming projects much more successful.

Kodak’s hard work would later pay off in 2015 with the release of his hit song SKRT which pushed him to instant fame.

But it didn’t come all that easy, after the release of the song it was not noticed by anyone, until the magic happened.

The magic was that famous Canadian rapper Drake got waves of the song and made a video of himself playing and dancing to it which he posted on his social media handles and just within a few days after this, fans of Drake loved the song and began to share and post the song on different social media platforms, thereby promoting the young Kodak Black.

All of a sudden, Kodak who was known by almost nobody was launched to fame and that was the turning point in his rap career.

The SKRT song topped music charts, got the young rapper nominated for several awards, sold thousands of copies and a year later it ranked at the number 10 position on the billboard’s Bubbling under R&B Hip-Hop Single Chart.

With the much success of this hit song, also came with lots of opportunities for the young Kodak Black as he landed a record deal with popular music record company Atlantic Records which was worth millions of dollars.

Kodak Black’s fame continued to rise and he then decided to make things better by announcing his much anticipated Parental Advisory Tour which was hosted by him and fellow rapper Lil Uzi Vert, but due to some unknown problems the tour was later cancelled by the duo.

Another of his songs which also made waves thereby pushing his fame further was No Flockin which claimed the number 40 position on the Hot R&B Hip Hop Song Charts.

This album featured appearances by top rappers like Young Jeezy, Young Thug, and Future.

It went on to sell over 60,000 copies in its first week of release and ranked number 3 on the billboard hot 200 music chart.

By October of 2017, he released another mixtape titled Project Baby II which went on to become a success, surpassing the recorded success of the first version of it which was his first career mixtape called Project Baby.
