Born and raised in Oakland, CA, ESEM found himself indoctrinated into a musical lifestyle at an early age. Having become a writer at 10, a producer at 11 and finally a recording artist at 15, Esem can create a beat or song as easily as he can blink. Over the past half a decade, Esem has also carved out a fanatical cult following in the battle rap circuit with his venomously sarcastic delivery.
