Willie Scott Jr. better known as F.O.L.D was born and raised in Cleveland Ohio in a single family home that consisted of his mother and two siblings. F.O.L.D. began rapping around the age of 13 after being inspired by the lyrical style of secular artist such as Bone Thugs and Harmony, Twista, Crucial Conflict and many others .
Around 1998 he began making music with other talented local rappers and producers and developed a group called Chrome Infantry. Several years later they became known as C.H.R.O.M.E. Their quality music and extrodinary artistic ability separated them from other local artist at that time. They were 1st Place winners of the BET/Coca Cola Talent Search hosted by Big Tigger for the MIDWEST Region, as well as, featured on Cleveland's #1 Hip-Hop station Radio One's Z107.9 FM. C.H.R.O.M.E. was known and admired both locally and nationally.
Over time, the group experienced several life changing events that caused it to dissolve. Although they had accomplished much together, it was not time for them to go forth individually in pursue their purpose. F.O.L.D believes that this was just a way for GOD to begin a transformation that would redirect his artistic focus from secular to Kingdom.
In 2006 and 2008 F.O.L.D. experience the loss of both his wife and mother from cancer. Both losses greatly impacted him as he then became a single father of 3 children. In the midst of those losses F.O.L.D. began to desire a greater understanding of God. In his pursuit, F.O.L.D. began to faithfully attend church and served in ministry in any capacity he was needed. His understanding of God began to increase as he sought a closer relationship with Christ. Eventually, F.O.L.D. began to work on music again, but this time with a different agenda, The Kingdom of God.
In 2010 F.O.L.D was blessed to court a beautiful woman of God and in 2011 they joined together with their children in marriage. F.O.L.D. continues to work diligently to pursue his Kingdom assignment. His desire for his music is that it will show the unsaved and unchurched a God that is just as real as YOU and I through a gift that is used completely for the Glory of God.
