Legacy’s passion for music began at a young age. Mixtapes from world famous DJs such as Red Alert, S&S, Kid Capri, and Dj Clue sparked Legacy’s love for Hip Hop and a desire to pursue a career in music.
Born and raised in Miami, Florida by hard working parent’s of Haitian decent, Legacy saw first hand the opportunities of the American Dream. His father gained great success in the automobile industry in the early 80s, but after several tragic events his family lost everything. These series of events drastically changed Legacy’s life and pushed him towards rebellious and criminal activities, and at the age of 18 Legacy faced 25 years in prison. It was that experience that redefined his life and the meaning and purpose of his name as an artist.
Legacy walked away from music for a several years to pursue God and find his true identity. He vowed never to touch music again until the timing was right. During the summer of 2015 Legacy was given the task to put together a program to help at risk youth and other members of his community through performing arts. These programs were catered to youth and young adults that were interested in music, dance, and film. This opportunity gave Legacy full access to a recording studio and instantly his passion for music was reborn.
Legacy has recently released a project called “The Short Tape”. He describes this body of work as a Mixtape EP that will quickly draw the attention of listeners. With melodic tracks like “Can’t Walk Away” and the crafty word play of “Truth For No Fee”, Legacy definitely has a sound that appeals to every age group. He is setting out to accomplish a life-long goal of creating music with substance and going after your dreams.
He believes music is one of the greatest platforms to create trends, and he has a strong desire is to see his legacy live on through the generations to follow. Although this journey of pursuing music has been apart of Legacy’s life for many years, in some ways it feels like he’s just getting started.
