Bazanji is also a full-time dental school student at the University of North Carolina. He has been validating his path into the hip-hop scene with millions of online streams and performances alongside noteworthy artists such as DJ Khaled. Before discovering hip-hop, Bazanji experienced a rich taste of music as a drummer in multiple rock bands.
