Tyler and his friends would joke about having dumb names if they ever made music by throwing lil infront of outlandish terms. One day Tyler decided to make a song by ripping some random beat of YouTube and writing rediculous lyrics over it. He already owned a decent microphone at the time due to YouTube so he made his first song. Showing just his gaming buddies whom he never actually met at the time, they thought it was funny kept asking for more. So he delivered. He kept making each song more outragous until he eventually showed his friends from school. Once they heard it, it spread across his school like wildfire. Everyone knew him for his music, they even played it at school functions. He enjoyed this for a while until high school was over.
