Artist Background: My name is Clifton Mays better known as 6hunna or 6hunna on the beat. I am 18 years old and I am from Cleveland Ohio. I started making beats when I was 16 years old. When I was 7, I found my passion in music.

At the time, my brothers were rapping and I would tag along with them in the studio. After being left with the thought of how people make beats, that inspired me to sit down a learn how. No one taught me how to play the keyboard.

I’m self taught. After teaching myself how to play the keyboard, I finally sat down in front of the computer to make a beat for the very first time. Since it was my first time making a beat, it did not really sound all that great.

Everyday and night I would sit at the computer and practice beat making. When i finally got it down packed I could not believe it. I was making beats and before I knew it everyone was coming to me asking me to put out a beat mixtape and here it is.
