As told to Fake Shore Drive, SD says, “In life we all make sacrifices to reach goals we set. If we don’t learn how to do that, our goals and dreams become the sacrifice. I’ve had to make a lot of changes and those sacrifices helped me create the life I’ve always wanted.”
SD is from the windy and dismal streets of Chicago where he, Chief Keef, Fredo Santana and Lil Reese,created a movement that continues to influence a generation. He found success at a young age in carving out his own identity by creating a niche style of hipster, cool kid rap, gangster rap with features and videos with the likes of Chief Keef,Danny Brown,Riff Raff and more. He attributes his success to a mature outlook on life, due to growing up on the war comparable, tumultuous streets of Chicago.
As an independent artist, SD has released a three-volume mix tape titled Life of a Savage I, Life of a Savage II, and Life of a Savage III, all of which were successful and critically acclaimed releases. In late 2014, SD released his debut album Truly Blessed on iHipHop Distribution, which broke down musical barriers for rappers from Chicago and also achieved personal milestones he set for himself. In 2015, SD released the fourth installment of his highly successful mixtape series Life Of A Savage 4 as well as Just The Beginning. In retrospect, SD says that his driving force in his life is his daughter, who shows him a higher purpose.
