Romane started rapping in Jamaica and would later start a record label called, DollaKing Records.

At the age of 16, Romane went back to Queens, New York to live with his mother, and it was there he started his entrepreneurial journey. While attending Newtown High School in Elmhurst, Queens, he would create various niche websites/blogs in his spare time.

Personal Quotes (5)

Surround yourself with people who are talented, ambitious, loyal, and dedicated! Ignore everyone else.
The problem with excuses is that we all have one. And when we all have something, the value depreciates exponentially.
