Born in Detroit, Michigan of Iraqi descent, Julian grew up in two worlds and stems from a long musical lineage. His paternal grandfather performed as part of the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra for over 20 years, and his father is a renowned pianist. Julian first learned to play the classical guitar, piano, and write songs at the site of his father's music school in Dubai. At just eight years old, while still honing his piano and guitar skills, he started to rap. At 16-years-old, he got his first midi keyboard and began to teach himself music production. The multi-instrumentalist, rapper, and producer, brings a decidedly global perspective to his music and hip-hop culture.
