Born in Tampa, Florida, Tariq “BL$$D” Sharrieff was brought into this world with the purpose of motivating and inspiring everyone he comes across.

“It all started when I was 13. I met a kid on a cruise ship who told me about this program called FL Studio. I wanted to get into music production so I checked it out, but had absolutely no idea how to use it and so I gave up. A couple of months later, God gave me a comprehensive tutorial on how to use FL Studio in a dream. I woke up, tried out everything I saw in my dream and it actually worked. From then on, I knew that everything that I did or accomplished would be for God.”

It just so happens that when he was 14, he discovered that through his father he was a nephew of Waah and Darrin Dean, the founders of Ruff Ryderz and a cousin of Super-Producer Swizz Beatz. “Once I discovered my lineage, I knew that God has placed all of these pieces together for a reason, and I was determined to find out why. Knowing that my family created one of the biggest labels in Hip Hop history provided an endless amount of inspiration, and I knew that if they were able to do that with the limited resources they had at the time, nothing was impossible.”
