Born Taj Ali in Miami, Florida to a gospel singer, and a family full of musical talent and influence,Peedi Green's gift of vernacular showed itself at a young age through witty, rhythmic and metaphoric wordplay.

Being signed to a label at the age of 13, he paid his dues by taking advantage of the machine he had at his disposal and tailored his craft by participating in freestyle battles up and down the coast, most of which he demolished. Peedi Green taught himself not only to blend “New York Style” hip-hop with the gritty, club friendly “Southern Style”, but also to expand into beat making and production.
