It was only a few years later when he lost his father which then became his motivation to begin chasing his dream while also carrying on his father’s legacy. In 2005 David linked up with childhood friend Robert also known as Rich and together they formed the group known as Goodfellaz. David had many qualities within himself that held the group together both lyrically and rhythmically.

Unlike many of the other artist in Cleveland he’s not just a rapper. He not only makes his own beats and writes his own music, he’s also a producer and a piano player
making him versatile in everything that he does. Recognizing his versatility it thus led to David calling himself what he’s now known as which is PtheArtist.
