Born in 1974 on the island of Grenada, Bob David started revealing his musical abilities at the age of seven. He began by playing the drums in a local church. In 1984 Bob, at age ten along with his mother and 4 siblings moved to Brooklyn, New York to live with his father for seven years. He became involved with street gangs, violence, and drugs.

In 1991 his family relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada where he and his brother Dan linked up with three new friends to form the group "Flexstyle," Las Vegas' first dancehall reggae group. Over the years Flexstyle grew in popularity from hosting Reggae sound system parties, stage shows to live radio broadcasts. Flexstyle hosted their own Sunday radio program to a live Las Vegas audience every Sunday for over 18 months. The show was called "Reggae on The Radio." At the peak of their career, Flexstyle graced the stage with artists such as Jimmy Cliff, Slick Rick, Beenie Man, Yellow Man, Mad Lion and many more.

While most of his partners in Brooklyn were still caught-up in a life of crime, in jail or dead, Bob was going through his own emotional roller coaster with his longtime girlfriend. In his instability, no man including himself would fix his situation. Bob finally called upon Jesus to intervene in his life. "I gave up my pride and ego so that I could have my calamity resolved, but it was a set-up by god for me to receive salvation," says Bob.
After returning to Las Vegas, Bob broke away from the group to follow Jesus Christ. Although it was hard for him to give up what he had worked so hard to attain, the Lord blessed him with more than he had imagined. Nothing in his past could compare to what the Lord had started anew in Bob’s life.
