A graduate of Delaware State University, Brooks first began making music at the age of 14 after being encouraged to rap by his friends. His interest in hip hop grew over the years as he performed with several rap-rock bands in high school. Eventually going solo in 2005, Brooks continued to hone his lyrical skills while studying audio production.

That project was followed by the "Liberation" EP in 2016 which featured the song "Vanity Sick", one of his most powerful and popular songs to date. In September 2018, MC returned from a brief hiatus and released his most recent project, Dark Dawn. Over the years, Brooks has performed all over the country in places such as Flushing Meadows Park in New York City and the legendary Howard Theatre in his hometown Washington D.C.
