It was not until his adult years that Paybacc’s true passion for music began. During his incarceration as an adult, Paybacc’s passion for music grew even stronger. He began using the prison walls literally as a tool to produce a beat to go with the many hooks he had written. These hooks sprouted into songs such as “Im a Hustla” and “I Ain’t Hard To Find“. Inspired by many greats such as 2 Pac, Pimp C, Ice Cube, and Snoop Dogg, Paybacc’s style brings a west coast Cali flavor with a Texas flavor.

  23. WOW!!! I remember when this cat started out spitting. I have watched you grow from a novice to an unsigned expert. The way you decided to use your word play in so many songs is completely crazy. I take my hat off to you bro. Your music has inspired many of the people now that have dreams of stepping out and letting their voices be heard. I truly encourage you to continue to move forward and do the unthinkable. A lot of folks wanna be a hot dog but can’t cut the mustard (real talk). I see that most people gotta be gased up, but i see you doing it all on E.. much love to ya bro

  25. I am STONE. I have been working with paybacc for bout 6 years now. And if anyone knows his music its me. I have heard him at his best and his worst. But he has never given up he keeps pushing. I have worked with over 200 artist in time as a music producer n he has been one of the artist that stood out from most. A cali voice with a texas swagg is

  26. Nice article. Keep on “GRINNING” bro, we know you are going to make it. From “P” town to “H” town. “GOD BLESS”.

  27. Can’t no one hit that beat like you. You put out real stuff it ain’t fake like a lot do . You have inspired someone to write his own stuff and sing. I thank u for that cause instead of showing anger or sadness all the time he writes it. Keep doing ur thing ur going somewhere and then u just gonna take it a level higher when u get there.

  28. I can relate to his music… He tells a story which lets us take a tour through his mind & thought… The concept of his music is like none other…Paybacc has a swagga that separates himself from other cats in the game… Paybacc is the real deal no lie….
