Bruce kept people rolling in laughter when he would tell some of his outrageous stories of his childhood experiences (all of which were true). He also received the name “Cut ‘Em Loose Bruce” because he was always in something as a child. He loved being around his family and friends, being an only child, he considered his cousins his brothers and sisters.

Growing up on Lenox Ave Bruce had a passion for rap music (one of his favorite rappers being Tupac), which led to him think about pursuing a rap career.
