Born in Compton, California, Bellinger’s choice to go on tour and record music over a football scholarship paid off, and he quickly became super active in writing for some of the biggest pop and R&B artists such as Selena Gomez, Usher, Justin Beiber, Da Brat, Jacob Latimore and Big Time Rush. By 2012, he was working very actively with The Game, and by 2013 was releasing his own material via mixtapes and his own studio album The Rebirth in 2014. Bellinger won a Grammy for his work on the album F.A.M.E. by Chris Brown in 2011.
