The city was well known for football and other sports championships. Dooley KP was a youngster who loved to write and loved music. He started writing poetry for friends for girls and later had a poem published.
Knowing that music was not recognized as an art or outlet in the south at this time, he hoped to play sports to provide an opportunity. As a youngster he was introduced and adapted to street life very early. While living with his older brother and his older family friends, they turned him on to the life of crime, hustling, drinking, smoking, and parting. He would live a double life of an honor roll student and a pistol toting, weed smoking, drinking and partying street kid.
Going down the path of destruction, he was saved by a coached that believed in his potential on the basketball court, he began to play on a travel league basketball team and his life slowly began to change.

Egos began to take affect and the group fell apart. They would do music with each other from time to time, but never fully reunited as a group.
Dooley KP began to get frustrated and almost gave up on something he always has passion for. With things moving slow and financing being a problem to fulfill his dream, Dooley KP went back to what he knew and what he was taught at an early age, hustling.
