Spliff Star: I was born in the Bronx raised in Brooklyn, New York. I moved from the Bronx to Brooklyn around 6 or 7 years old. I Grew up in East Flatbush, Brooklyn New York Church Avenue. I went to a school called Winthrop Wingate Erasmus. Church Avenue was the stomping grounds. Love People was a club, Empire was the skating rink, kings Plaza was the mall, the last street had everything. its many different ethnicities around the neighborhood. I came from mostly Caribbean. It has some Italians and Jews as well. It’s a street melting pot.
TSB: When did you know you wanted to get into the entertainment industry?
Spliff Star: I was more into the street at the time getting a lot of street money. Busta is my childhood friend I used to take him to the studio with his group leaders of the Nee School, pack them all of my 325I BMW and drop them off at the studio called Chungking studios downtown Manhattan. I would drop them off and head to my destination. Shout out to Norfolk Virginia. I would make it back and sit through the sessions that they would have, and I fell in love with the creation pot and the creativity of watching it get done. it made me feel good. Better than what I was doing. and what I was doing wasn’t going to last long. So, I had to make a switch when opportunity presented itself. And that’s when SPLIFF STAR was born
