GetDown was born Paul L. Patton Jr. on June, 20th 1988 in Germany,
Europe. GetDown was raised in Little Rock, Arkansas on the southwest side of town on one the most dangerous, hardcore, corrupt streets of
Little Rock, Arkansas at the time. It was hard for him to focus on music at a young age when surrounded by so much negativity and going to school.
Drugs, gangs, guns, and violence was all he saw growing up in the hood he's from on the 5400 block of Crenshaw Drive.
GetDown has always been a very gifted and talented young man. He loved basket-ball, but had a very strong
passion for rapping also. He begin writing and recording songs at the age of 8 with other local artist in his city. He has been
stepping up his game every since. In 2001 GetDown and his family moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota where he began to pursue his
dreams even more. GetDown also became more connected to the street life of living in the ghetto.
He hustled on the corners of NorthSide Minneapolis at the ages of 12 and 13. where
he met another hot local artist by the name of Zodiak. Zodiak was one of the people along with J Funk and A.K. that pulled GetDown off the streets and into the
studio. Working with Zodiak started a new life for GetDown motivating him to want to become a rapstar.
