The two worked on music together through college, when they attended Columbia College. In 2014, Bari moved back to St. Louis, quit his job, had his first son, and devoted himself to music full-time. Frequenting Chicago and LA to work on his craft, Bari eventually released his debut project, MSTRGLSS, in 2019, with three additional EPs and a slew of singles after that leading to his new release, F*@k It Burn It All Down.
