Bio

Tommie Mabry grew up in one of Jackson, MS roughest neighborhoods. Trouble followed him everywhere before and after fifth grade when he was arrested for breaking into the state fairgrounds. After that arrest, he was suspended or expelled from several schools due to his behavior. In sixth grade, a bullet grazed his side while burglarizing a home not knowing that the owner was there – armed. His role models were local drug dealers that he idolized and sought to emulate. He was in and out of juvenile detention centers, for crimes such as home invasion, auto theft, drug, and other crimes.
