Richmond, Virginia is where it all started for A Plus, where he grew up having an immense love for music. While his friends spent time by playing with toys, trading cards or in sports, Plus spent the majority of his allowance on cassette singles and albums from his favorite artists. Plus worked at his high school radio station before attending Virginia State University, majoring in Mass Communications. While at Virginia State, Plus interned for Radio One's WCDX-FM (iPower 92-1) in the summer of 2005. After only 2 1/2 months as an intern, Plus was hired as a part-time on-air personality for his heritage hometown station. Recognizing the importance of this opportunity, he worked overtime to learn as many components of his job as possible, which ranged from morning show producer to mix-show DJ. Proving that hard work does pay off, A Plus moved to St. Louis in 2011 to accept the position of Evening On-Air Personality. After three years of high ratings and success, Plus was promoted to Music Director and Afternoon Drive Personality in 2014. @a_plus
