Columbus Ohio native, Taelor Gray, grew up in a household filled with gospel and soul tunes. The Winans' song, "It's Time", was one of Taelor's first experience with rap music. Over the years Taelor developed a love for the sounds of Rawkus Records artists, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Pharaoh Monche, and Common. Leaving behind his young hobbies of action figures, video games, and comics, Taelor began to focus on his music aspirations. At age 14, Taelor's love for rap became personal, developing his own style, he began to rap. A few years later, Taelor, his brother Christon, and James Hazley went on to develop a group called the Elevationists. The group regularly traveled and performed from 2006 to 2009.
