Adrian Childe, formerly known as "Masta Flo," was born in Orlando, FL in 1991 as Carlos Adrian Hernandez. He began his hobby in the late nineties when his first grade teacher expressed her love for his writing. "It was something extraordinary," she said. It allowed him to take his thoughts and ideas to a place outside of the present world that he didn't know existed. Growing up in the west side of the city, he went to Hiawassee Christian Academy. It was a private school rich with diversity and kids from all walks of life where he focused on studying, writing, and being the world's greatest kid.
A few years later, Adrian Childe went to Ocoee Middle School where he transitioned from private school to public. He met friends and other kids in the community who he grew close to as time went on. He focused on writing as his primary hobby, until one day, he experimented doing covers of songs that he had heard on the radio by singing to himself. Using his computer, he downloaded instrumentals and recorded his voice over them using the software that came with it. After showing friends and family, he unexpectedly received praise and put a smile on their face at the same time.
In 2004, Adrian Childe met his older cousin who introduced him to a program called Acid 4.0, a software program designed to make instrumentals and record vocals. He continued working on his hobby and began making original songs where he wrote lyrics and recorded vocals which received praise from newfound fans at school and in the community.
By the beginning of high school, Adrian Childe and his family moved west to Clermont, FL. Upon moving, they invested in studio equipment so that his hobby could be taken more serious. Shortly after, he met Aragon, formerly known as "Yung Dre," a rapper from Carolina, PR. They discussed their ambitions and musical aspirations for the future and became a duo. They went on to make countless numbers of original songs and met various artists and producers in the industry. Most of Adrian Childe's work was posted on MySpace, a social networking website that allowed musicians to upload songs, where he gained a fan base of over 7,000.
In 2009, Adrian Childe finished high school at South Lake High School and began college at Lake-Sumter State College where he took courses in business and creative writing. Throughout his time there, he made various pieces of literature, including songs, stories, poems, plays, speeches, and professional essays. He finished his fourth and last mixtape, "Unsigned" in 2010, which received praise and admiration from hundreds of fans. After the release of "Unsigned," Adrian Childe began focusing on other activities while working part-time jobs and finishing college. Subsequently, he slowly began losing his passion for music production and writing due to the fall of MySpace and the new ventures he focused on.
