At the age when most kids are trying to obtain their drivers license, Toomp cut his first hit song with the legendary Raheem the Dream and the success was surprisingly lucrative for the 16 year-old. In addition to owning the flyest gear and selling the hottest mixtapes on the streets, he was soon spinning on college campuses and full scale auditoriums.
