In the early 1980’s, he relocated with his mother and grandmother to the quaint city of Birmingham, Alabama. He attended West End High School in Birmingham and graduated in 1997.
He is the oldest of all his siblings and has a brother and sister. Raised in Birmingham, Tariq never quite fit in the muted social life for he knew he was meant for bigger and greater things. At the tender age of 17, he got enough money for a plane ticket and left for Los Angeles to put his dreams to work.
He was known as a rebel and street god during his time in the 1990’s Los Angeles. His early days in LA, shaped him to be what he is today. Through his knack of reading people, he formulated certain “techniques” or “methods” which he called “G.I.C.2” (game, intelligence and common sense squared) and imparted his acquired knowledge to everyone he encountered during those days.
This set him up as a “game advisor”. Tariq married his longtime girlfriend, Peanut Nasheed in 2014. The couple resides in Los Angeles, California, the USA with their 3 kids, daughter, Taria Nasheed, son, Asir Nasheed and the youngest, Mateo Nasheed.
