When Moshow first started rapping at the age of 14, he wrote about street life in Baltimore, according to Portland newspaper Willamette Week. But soon after, he had a change of heart.
"I grew up in the projects ... so I was rapping gangster stuff and pretending a life that I didn't really live," he said.
Once Moshow got to college, he was introduced to a Sphynx by a friend and has since bought four of his own.
"I always felt like I had a connection with Sphynx," Moshow said. "They're weird, like me."
Moshow has garnered thousands of views on his YouTube music videos featuring his hairless friends.
