L.I.V.E. was born "Daniel Apa" in the windy city of Chicago, Illinois. After living in a shelter home as a youth, he was relocated to Jacksonville, North Carolina. Like many others in his position, L.I.V.E. had to learn the definition of "survival" at an early age. He did what was necessary by using street life tactics and attempting conventional jobs while trying to build a career around his love for music.

In 2004, L.I.V.E. reconnected with long-time friend/producer The D.E.M of Maximus Music Records. The product was the full-length classic "Long Time Comin' " The album, initially launched in the Carolinas, reached sales all over the continental U.S., Hawaii, Canada, and even sales in Europe.

After the release of his first official album, L.I.V.E. toured briefly and temporarilly relocated to San Antonio, Texas, with General Manager Joseph Fazio. The response was positive and the need for another full-length album was overwhelming. L.I.V.E. left Texas for Greensboro North Carolina in order to be closer to the Maximus Music Studio and producer The D.E.M. After gaining a substantial buzz the label agreed to bring L.I.V.E. aboard in 2005 for production.

With The DEM's production and L.I.V.E.'s new improved flow out comes the product "LIGHT BLUE DOPE" a mixture of southern flows mixed with northern influence companied by R&B harmony. This title arrives from the state proclaimed color "Carolina Blue" & the connotation of being hooked on an addictive deadly drug. Listeners will get a varitety of NC street hip hop, down south flows, plus harmornized tracks w/ Jodeci & Oliva Newton John.

L.I.V.E. is currently working with producer/songwriter and Platinum Grammy awarded "Kilo" Pugh, a.k.a. Mr. Maygreen known for "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" & currently featured on the new Ghostface Killer single "Good" for Def Jam.
