With the devastating lost of his mother and the absents of this father who is an ordained minister, Tory was forced to provide for himself at the early age of fourteen. Although his dad was not present in his everyday life, Tory learned how to become a real man and how to provide for himself. He also learned that a man's word is his bond, A real man will never give up, and to always follows your dreams.
Pulling all positives from negative situation, Tory began to channel such hardship and pain into his music.

He was also able to perform in front of Greg Street.

After meeting with Sean he signed with Time Is Money Caribbean" and began collaborating with artists/producers such as Soulja Boy,Bun B,Boi 1Da and Sean Kingston.
