Morgan London Rankins was born August 25, 1986 to Maria Antoinette Griffin Rankins and Marquis Keith Rankins. She was born at Seton Hospital weighing 11 lbs and 10 oz. Morgan is the first grandchild of John and Lorena Griffin.

A true Austinite, Morgan lived in Austin, Texas her entire life. Morgan began the road to education in 1989 at the age of three in the Austin Independent School District Early Childhood. She attended Christ Community Christian School from third through seventh grade. Morgan completed junior high at Covington Middle School and in 2004 she received her high school ddiploma from W. charles Akins High School. Morgan continued her education by attending Austin Community College where she studied Psychology and Commercial Music Management. In 2016, Morgan culminated her education at Huston-Tillotson University where she graduated summa cum laude, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology.

As a result of the great foundation instilled in her by her family, Morgan accepted Christ at an early age. She was baptized at the age of ten in 1996 at David Chapel Missionary Baptist Church by Pastor Joseph C. Parker, Jr. and her Papa, John L. Griffin. In addition to feeding her mind, she chose to also feed her soul. through heartbreaks, harsh realizations, and surviving a Wilm's tumor (kidney cancer) at the age of three, Morgan knew she was here for a reason and began expressing herself through her hip hop music.

Morgan started her career as a writer at the age of 13, picked up the mic at age 19, and began developing a following for her music. She kept a steady flow of rhythm with messages of wisdom intertwined with witty word play. Her goal as an artist was "to be the first female Backpack Rapper to top the charts like a Popstar" and to revitalize hip hop Morgan's purpose was to follow her dream and be a catalyst for change through her music

On February 22, 2017, Morgan left to cherish her memory: her parents, Maria Griffin Rankins and Marquis Keith Rankins; her grandparents, John and Lorena Griffin; brother Marquis Cannon; cousins John A. Griffin and Kali D. Tindell; her best friend Masani Abikanile; her beloved dog, Solomon; a host of cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, and her loving David Chapel church family.
