Nicholas Piantedosi was born in Waltham, Massachusetts and relocated to Nashua, New Hampshire as a young child. As early as Junior High School, Decap was fascinated with music and began to study the art of producing. In 1995, after purchasing Snoop Dogg “Doggystyle” album, Decap was fully committed to making his presence felt in hip-hop. Decap began to collect and study the genre and drew inspiration from hip-hop pioneers such as J Dilla, Dj Premier, Pete Rock, and A Tribe Called Quest. Decap began rapping and started a 9 member rap group named, “Young Tribe.” Inspired by marginal success and wanting original material for Young Tribe, Decap bought his first drum machine and began to record beats and instrumentals.
