His parents chose to home school "Turf Talk", and during this time, he began to emulate the rappers by writing his own verses. He soon learned that he had a talent for writing music.
As his cousin Earl Stevens AKA E-40, Danell Stevens AKA D-Shot, Brandt AKA B-Legit and Tenina Stevens AKA Suga-T were building The Click. This group ultimately became the foundation for "Sic Wid It Records" .
"Turf Talk" admired the ambitions of his Northern Cali Family and had early aspirations to join the First Family of Rap.
After living in hotel rooms for four to five years, "Turf Talk" returned to Vallejo in (1999) and began to pursue his rap career.
Upon returning to school, "Turf Talk" was encouraged by family and friends to enter a school talent show: where he would become the Grand Prize Winner. It was from this point forward that he had confidence enough to ask E-40 for his assistance.
Originally rapping under the name "Killa Kane", "Turf Talk" would first appear alongside Mac Shawn, another younger cousin of E-40, on the compilation CD "Worldwide Bosses" & "Playas" (2001). His breakthrough came in (2003) performing the hook for the "MTV"-aired E-40 track "Gasoline", (B-side) to the single "One Night Stand".
On July 30, 2005 The Champ hit the stage when the MC called his name as the winner of "The Rookie of the Year" at the B.A.R. Awards on July 30, 2011 at the Masonic Center on Nob Hill. The competition included Bay Area Rap Artists: Vital, Mark D, Mr. Tower, YA Boy, Mistah FAB, Nasty Nate and Dem Hood Stars.
In the booming "Bay Area" Hip Hop scene, "Turf Talk" has achieved the championship belt. The man behind hits "Its ah Slumper" and "Sav Out" and his colab with "The Federation" on "Hyphy" is noted all around the region, even in New York.
In the early hours of July 14, 2005, "Turf Talk" suffered several shots to the face from a low caliber pellet shotgun, after being apparently targeted leaving a recording studio in Vallejo. He was treated at the Sutter Solano Medical Center and made a quick and full recovery.
"Turf Talk" would go on to appear on three tracks on E-40's (2003) album Breakin News as well as cement his growing reputation in the Bay Area's new movement by guesting in style on the official remix to The Federation's hit "Hyphy".
In (2004) "Turf Talk" released his highly anticipated debut album "The Street Novelist" featuring his mentor E-40, The Federation and a range of Sick Wid It Records' artists. The CD included the Rick Rock's produced smash "It's Ah Slumper" and one of the final guest appearances of Mac Dre.
In (2006) "Turf Talk" secured further exposure by appearing on E-40's Billboard 200 success story "My Ghetto Report Card" as well as MTV's "Hyphy Music Insight My Block: The Bay". His influence on the "Hyphy" movement was featured in Hip Hop magazines "The Source" & "XXL"
In the summer of (2006) "Turf Talk" extended his cross-genre, national and international reputation after being invited to feature on the DJ Shadow V music video alongside Keak Da Sneak , as well as a supporting role in a tour of Europe and Japan.
The tour climaxed with a performance in front of over 25,000 at the Wireless Festival in London's Hyde Park on June 23. "Turf Talk" appeared alongside Bay Area emcees Mistah Fab and Nump, in a line-up which included Massive Attack, Pharrell, Gnarls Barkley and Damian Marley.
