Although he is referred to as a "Boston's Boy", he actually lived in upper-class suburbs for most of his life. Adams has been involved in music since his childhood; he played piano from the age of 7. At 11 years old, he began to improvise while playing on his piano, to create his own beats and melodies. Adams has stated in interviews that his musical influences have not only come from other rappers, but also from the classic rock, rock, classical music, and blues genres of music. While seeking to be eclectic, he also stays true to his musical roots so to create a "hip-pop" style in his music. Adams had aspired to be a producer before he had ever aimed at becoming a rapper. He began writing small raps throughout his time at middle and high school. Adams then started the recording of songs on his Macbook in 2008 within the dorms of his college.
