Early life and background[edit]

Sean Martin Slaughter was born on May 4, 1976,[1][2][3] in Queens, New York City, New York, the son of Alvin Slaughter, and was raised in Queens and Brooklyn. Slaughter explains that his relationship with his father was strained growing up, as his father was often away, and, when he was available, Sean was not very interested in the church or his father's music activities.[4] He graduated from Warwick Valley High School in Warwick, New York, in 1994, where he spent his time as a teenager, before going off to college. He received a full football scholarship to University of Rhode Island, where he majored in business marketing. However, he lost the scholarship after failing to maintain the grades required, and turned to producing hip-hop music instead.[4] Slaughter claims that he produced five songs for Wu-Tang Clan affiliate members M.M.O during this period.[4] He went on to study audio engineering, and received a diploma from the Institute of Audio Research, in 1997. Slaughter obtained his baccalaureate from Regent University in organizational leadership and management, in 2010.
