LeSean was born in 1975, the year Civil War began in Lebanon. The year North Vietnamese took Saigon, ending the Vietnam War. The year USA and Soviet spaceships, Apollo and Soyuz, test flights docked, the year Spanish Dictator, Franco, bites the bullet, The first condom commercial was aired, the first personal computer was introduced and Microsoft was founded. What does that all have to do with this Uber-Talent? Nothing, really.but ya boy sure loves to draw. Born and raised as a child of Hip Hop in the "Mecca" (South Bronx), he grew up copying his older brother to get attention and stuck with one of the many attempts, drawing. Through all the booty-chasing and fly-dressing as a teenager to get romance, his first love was right under his nose. Art. This love affair that cost him many-o-summer afternoons and park jams, soon blossomed into holy matrimony.
