LevelLs was raised in Brooklyn, New York. He developed his passion for music early in life and he knew that it was going to be a priority, not an option. He decided to continue the tradition of music through the generations in his family. Always playing music as a youth, He took a strong love to the drums and piano. His first production was at 9 yrs old on the first piece of equipment that he recalls producing on, a DX-7 synthesizer and a Yamaha drum machine. LevelLs was always known for music in high school. In those years, He was a part of a 4-piece band called I.D.E.A. where he played the drums and they would play for local events.
LevelLs went on to study Music Engineering in college and left early to focus on his music career. He started working with other musicians in the New York tri-state as well as other states to expand his market for music production. He evolved relentlessly and pushed forward to create a style of music that is influenced by 80’s Pop, Classical to Hip-Hop and combining them into new sounds. His music influences are broad and very vast, even drawing inspiration from some of his favorite comedians such as, Chris Rock and Bernie Mac. "A good comedian always has good relevance to life, and that is what I put in my music.
"LevelLs is currently branding his own independent venture. He is currently working on his debut album, “The Resume” due out spring 2011. His debut single, “Hip-Hop” already has a good buzz through the internet which is his ode for the love of the culture. With his smooth, slick wordplay, he's bringing a reminisce back of Hip-Hop’s 90's Golden Era with a current style that will continue the tradition of Hip-Hop for years to come.

Bobby Flacco was born in Oxnard, CA in 1985 to a Puerto Rican mother and Italian father. In his early years he was touted as a highly intelligent boy who couldn't seem to follow rules. His mother was a drug addict and alcoholic who would physically abuse him. This caused Bobby to backlash against society and disrespect teachers and authority. During the summer of 1999, things took an abrupt turn for Bobby that caused his whole outlook on life to change.
Bobby Flacco's mother was thrown in jail for selling narcotics and he was forced to survive off friends and family. Fueled by animosity towards his mother, Bobby told himself he would change the direction he and his siblings were in.
Bobby would move to Los Angeles at 17 and attend the University of Southern California where he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Urban Planning and Construction Management. He currently works as an engineer to a major construction firm during the day, and hits the studio at night.
