Early influences notably include Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent, a self-made entrepreneur, millionaire and businessman also no stranger to shortcomings or the hustle.

And make it is just what he is doing; With two mix tapes out respectfully titled "Head Honcho" and "Grizzly Diaries" and a new summer hit entitled " U Maddd" circulating the internet, the Grizzly Bear has his work cut out for him.
