Born on August 13, 1971, in Queens, NY; formerly known as Intelligent Hoodlum. Trag started his career as 1/2 of Super Kids, along with DJ Hot Day, releasing the single "Go, Queensbridge" in 1985. It was this output that caught the attention of Marley Marl, who produced in 1986 the duo's next single "The Tragedy (Dont Do It)", with Trag also being made a junior member of the Juice Crew alongside artists such as Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, and MC Shan. In 1987, he appeared as MC Percy in the B side of the 12" "Juice Crew All Stars" and also on the last Super Kids single, "Hot Day Master Mix". After a conviction that year (he was only 16 years old) for robbery charges followed by serving time in the Elmira Correctional Facility, Chapman became a Five Percenter and began working under the alias "Intelligent Hoodlum". Peep the classic militant music, you hear me?
