Blackson explained that he started with music because it was the only way for him to connect with his friends and to feel accepted in his group, because most of them were able to improvise rhymes and Freestyle and he was the odd one because he could not do it. Fast forward,  two years later, he was already on major stages, battling other Mc’s and winning rap battles here and there.

Some memorable contests he won was firstly, in 2002 at Valpolicella Sound Park.
