Shirt was born on the Upper West Side and grew up in Queens. Not much more is known, though it's quite possible he has a mother and father, a couple of brothers, as well as extended family. Though he's been spotted at times "smiling with people", nobody claims to definitively know him. Most, "can't call it".

In 2013, the rapper supposedly fucked Rihanna and dropped the "AUTOMATIC" video. Other things happened also.

At press time, Shirt was said to be on a "luxury barge" "somewhere on the Hudson". It's said this is where the rapper does his most inspired writing throughout the New York winter.
