GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL IN 2005 HE SOON FELL TO THE LONG ARM OF THE LAW AND FOUND HIMSELF IN AND OUT OF TROUBLE. IN 2006 HE DROPPED HIS FIRST MIXTAPE,”ITS DAT REAL” A HOOD CLASSIC FULL OF ORIGINAL AND QUALITY WORK FOR HIS DEBUT. AFTER PICKING UP BUZZ IT ALL CAME TO A HALT AFTER HE FOUND HIMSELF IN PRISON SERVING An FOUR-YEAR SENTENCE FOR ROBBERY. WHILE INSIDE, HE FOUND HIMSELF AND CONTINUED MAKING MUSIC PREPARING FOR THE FREE WORLD. RELEASED IN 2011, AT THE AGE OF 23 WITH A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE, LANTANA DECIDED TO FOCUS COMPLETELY ON HIS MUSIC. HE HIT THE GROUND RUNNING DROPPING HIS FIRST TAPE “LANTANA ON THE WAY” AND HIS FIRST SINGLE “ALL HUSTLE NO LUCK” ENDED HITTING LOCAL RADIO AND EVENTUALLY GOT HIM HIS FIRST RECORD DEAL.
