Like many Baltimore residents, Juwan grew up listening to Baltimore club music and it inspired his ventures into music production. "When I was younger, about 3 or 4 years old, I always used to listen to Rod Lee, KW Griff, and K-Swift CDs in my dad's car. I remember we would drive to McDonald's and I would say 'Dad, can you play that CD?' I never knew what the music was called but I would always ask my dad to play it," Juwan says. Experimenting with production technology came easy for Juwan. "I wanted to know how people actually make music," he says. "I never knew how they did it, so I would look on Google and YouTube. One time, [an ad for] a program popped up, so I downloaded it, messed with it, and you know of course when I was young, I sucked," he says, laughing.
