His first love, basketball, was Hydro’s way to exhibit his start power. While in high school, Hydro displayed natural athletic ability and discovered his lyrical creativeness.. It was not until college that Hydro decided to diligently pursue his rap career. School and basketball became his secondary plans and at that point and Hydro fully emerged.
