Born in NYC during the 80's, Atom was moved to So. California at the age of 3. By the time Atom was 12 he was involved in Hip-Hop culture, first through breakdancing and later through graf art. At the age of 15 he began rhyming. From that point on, hip-hop became his focus and his drive. He learned the arts of music production and recording, eventually establishing a home studio where local artists could record and purchase instrumentals. It was during this time that Atom perfected his craft as both an MC and a producer.
