Growing up in a close knitted family, Rambo? as family members would call him, was a well fed yet admirable as well as affable, and a willing young man throughout his early years.Ramon attended the St. Richards Primary school, where life for him was quite boring, as he quotes. Never fractious though, Ramon was always sociable out of class and attentive in class. He found the love for poetry in the 5th grade in Primary school. Poetry was easy Ramon would say, it was a means of expressing your thoughts in your own way with rhymes? He also wrote poems in his spare time for his own personal pleasure.
Ramon moved on in his academics, graduating at the age of 11, passing for the school where their motto is the utmost for the highest, formally and still known today as the Calabar High School. Throughout his high school years, Ramon became somewhat of an introvert, withdrawn after his father was cold bloodedly murdered when he was in 1st form. Life suddenly for Rambo was up and down, as his widowed mother moved around to seek a better comfort of living.After moving around from one community to another it was hard for Ramon to have any real friends. At the age of 12 Ramon mother moved the family to the Oakland community, where he spent most of his time going to therapy classes and trying to cope with the situation of his loving and still remembered father, who was brutally murdered at his home.
During the 2 years that Ramon lived in the Oakland’s community, Ramon became a lot more socially active, he played a lot of football and listened keenly to his favorite music artist Busta Rhymes. Ramon knew Busta Rhymes albums like the back of his hands and would idolize him, or as Jamaicans say, rate him? Time passed by and Ramon grew older, he started to understand life and living without a father, his mother decided that it was time to move once more, to seek further comfort in living.At the age of 14, Ramon family moved to the community of Barbican.
