Tarik and his cousin Had their own keyboard and drum machine, they soon became a rap duo in high school and performed at talent shows even getting a chance to perform out in Vegas at a rap convention where he met teddy Riley. By the end of high school Tarik and his cousin converted their aunt's garage into a full fledge studio.

Soon he found himself on tour with his friend and Flo rida in Australia in 2008, which led into Tarik receiving an intro by one of hip hop’s greatest Dj's DJ Khaled for Tarik's song "Hey Shawty" in 2009. Shortly after that the label Cet it off folded. His friend and cousin got writing deals and Tarik decided to take took a hiatus from music from 2010 -2015.
He moved to Florida in 2014 after a month long trip to Thailand where his views on life changed and he was re introduced to music and started recording what He considers to be "real music" music with substance. This time he decided to stop making music he thought people would like and he started to make music that moved him.
Tarik describes his music as pop melodies and synth backed by hip-hop drums and a casual undertone of sometimes r&b and other times reggae. "I want to make music to bring all walks of life together". He wants to be a universal artist, one that can perform on a hip-hop platform to pop to indie to reggae to r&b. His goal is to spread not only positive vibes but real vibes as well. We go through life feeling waves of emotions and that's what Tarik will show the world through his music.
