Deaf Rapper Inks Record Contract

Born in Rochester, Mich., Forbes was raised in Farmington Hills, a suburb of Detroit. Both of his parents were musicians, in addition to his mother working as vice president at her father’s trucking company, and Forbes’ father owning and managing a number of restaurants in the area.
