Mr.CAP is a nephew of Johnny "Guitar" Watson. “Pratt’s family history comes out in his music. He always manages to translate the content of the song in an interesting musical way, when he puts that voice to music; it has a nimble quality that allows it to slide around flurries of words with a jazzy deftness.” Mr.CAP released his debut album "2 Tha Grave" in 2011.
Mr.CAP began rapping at the age of eight. He was coming up during the time when rap was just hitting the scene. He knew He liked Hip Hop when he first heard Kurtis Blow. But knew for certain that he'd be a rapper when he first heard Rakim. Rap at that point, would become his first love.
