Every story has a begining.The same is true for M.a.i.N.Born in brooklyn New York But,raised in Queens. He Came from a single mother household,his father disappeared early on in his childhood and never really followed up on his long lost son.A very smart student M.a.i.N. fell victim to the new age fever called "street life". By the age of 13 he was cutting school daily chasing money.By 16 he was holding hands with his new found friend the "street life".At the age of 17 he found music.Being influenced by the greats such as 2pac Shakur,Biggie Smalls,Nasir Jones and Shawn Carter.In 2001 M.a.i.N. hooked up with long time friend Jimmy Stunts and they began what is nowthe street legend of Down2Die Records.Unfornately during the course of finishing their 1st album together M.a.i.N. was arrested and sentented to serve a term in state prison.Despite the ups and downs in his life this did not stop him from pursuing his dream of one day being able to let the world hear his thoughts.See,for its the pain that drives him. All the sleepless nights,the sorrow that fills him,it drives him to seek greatness.Now on his 7th year as a song writer M.a.i.N. is ready to go public by any means nessecary.Mentally he is proud of his gift and knows that the time is now. 25 years of age the same as the late great 2pac Shakur was before he was taken from us.7 years of paying dues,7 years of non stop planing and plotting every move perfectly.7 years stuffed into 13 songs,M.a.i.N. presents "The Freedom Of Speech"
