He also performed for Stella Maris on Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation (JBC) before it became Television Jamaica (TVJ) along with fellow classmates.
TRILLO and family migrated to the United States when he was 13 years old. Though he was placed in an accelerated program called the International Baclarette(IB) with strict policies to maintain a high grade, he was still passionate about music. He would rhyme and beat bop with his friends attracting huge crowds at school but had to complete his studies at College because his mother was firm on education regardless of his interest in music. Trillo always believed he would have his way and never gave up on his dream; even when it seemed like it would never happened the very thought ultimately motivated him to hone his skills.
