Sacario was born in St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital Center on Manhattan's Upper West Side. He grew up impoverished in a local public housing project until a child hood friend brought him to Washington Heights, New York. There he found a way out, it was music. On September 28, 2001 Sacario signed a production deal with Angie Martinez's Animal House Productions. In addition, 3 months later he signed a record deal with Elektra Records. Sacario's first release under the two labels was the remix to his original song Live Big Car Keys. The remix included Angie Martinez & Multi Platinum Hip Hop Star Fat Joe.

The song won two Nielsen BDS Spin Awards for 50,000 radio spins and 100,000 radio spins.
