They also got him a violin and took him for lessons, which helped Larenz to learn how to structure songs and create music. Larenz always believed in being productive and creating something, for which he thought of trading schools. One of his friends Ghetto E became a rapper and got a video with a local musical production that pushed Larenz to create his music.

He started looking around for inspiration and getting to know new people at school, the first room he moved into was not what Larenz was looking for, and his room changed again, where he met Justin and Dave.
