At age 14 he met Chris & Curtis Greenwood, brothers who had their own studio. At this studio Scotty learned the basic formula to creating and mixing tracks. Curtis showed Scotty a few chords and he picked it up fast, so fast in fact in a matter of months Scotty was playing piano for the youth choir at Shiloh M B Church. There he also received training from the late and great Tony Ray, Lazar Grey, Dion Wolfard, and Sylvester Harper.
Scotty let Mr. Harper hear some of the tracks he had been crafting in the studio. After hearing these phenomenal songs Mr. Harper introduced Scotty to his long time and friend producer Earl Powell.
Earl immediately saw the potential in Scotty and signed him to his production company Eptone. For the next two years Scotty worked on perfecting his gifts as a singer, rapper and producer.
