Early life

Mitchell grew up in Opa-locka, Florida. His mother died when he was 9, and four years later; at age 13, his brother was killed in a car accident. At age 14, the troubled teen’s cousin introduced him to his best friend, E-Class, the founder of Poe Boy Entertainment[2]

Music career

Mitchell met Poe Boy Entertainment founder E-Class in 1997. E-Class encouraged him to express his life hardships through rap. Mitchell signed to Poe Boy a few years later and received his first payment from his mother's life insurance check in 2001. However, he spent all $400,000 in six months.[2]

In 2006, Mitchell, under stage name Brisco, did guest performances on tracks from DJ Khaled's Listennn... the Album ("The Future of Dade") and Rick Ross's Port of Miami ("I'm a G", also with Lil Wayne). Lil Wayne signed Brisco to Cash Money Records in November that year. Brisco began recording an album for Poe Boy and Cash Money, Street Medicine, in 2007 with lead single "I'm Into Dat" and "Opa-locka". He also made his big debut with Cash Money on Lil' Wayne's mixtape Da Drought 3 on a song called New Cash Money.[2]

Brisco continued doing many guest appearances in 2007 and 2008, such as for albums We the Best by DJ Khaled, Tha Carter III by Lil Wayne, and Mail on Sunday by Flo Rida. He also released his own singles, "In the Hood" (featuring Lil Wayne) and "Just Know Dat" (featuring Flo Rida and Lil Wayne)and appeared in Billy Blue's "Get Like Me". For his upcoming debut Street Medicine, he plans to "mix club tracks, sex tracks and religious tracks" and make lyrics based on his real-life experiences.[3][4] In late 2008, Brisco released a mixtape with DJ Bigga Rankin, From Dade to Duval, part of Rankin's Real Nigga Radio series.[5] Recently Brisco has dissed well-known rapper Gucci Mane, OJ Da Juiceman and Waka Flocka Flame on a track called "Waka Blacka". He released this song after Waka got shot on Tuesday in Atlanta. He states that he released this after Gucci Mane dissed him on his song "Heavy"[1].
