Underground Interview With 3liii’Jah
3liii’Jah alias David C. Ayers Jr. was born in Lynwood, California March 20th 1992. He started making music when he was 12 years old, always had a knack to write songs, real songs that people around him could feel.
It’s like God put his hand on his brain when he writes rhymes, and he just blackout. David feels like he's been sent by God to be a Prophet to the nations, and to proclaim the downfall of this country. With all the injustices going on, he has always been one to sound off about what the people in the ghetto feel. David feels like it’s his duty to report what’s going on in the streets, and he won’t stop until the whole world knows.
