It was not easy for Surreall’s parents to raise their four girls in a crime and drug saturated community like Acres Homes in Houston, TX but prayer and faith made it possible. Her sister Stacy’s talent for rhyming influenced Surreall to experiment with music. At the age of 12, the young MC wanna-be recited Da Brat’s flows for her teachers and classmates. "Everybody thought they were mines because of the way I sounded and the lil' swagger I had," she recalls. But that little spark was all it took for her to start a fire. She began writing her own lyrics, and fours years later she was in the studio recording her first song, "I Like It."
