In an interview, he described his neighborhood as having "a lot of drugs and, of course, a little bit of violence" and that his growing up in a difficult area inspired his rap lyrics. Franks, the youngest of four children, recalled his childhood as "very difficult" and said, "My mama and daddy were on drugs." My brother was in and out of jail. My foster parents were hounding me. It was mad."
Huey began producing hip hop beats at the age of 15. Franks was referred to producer Angela Richardson, who was establishing a rap band, by his older brother. Franks first appeared on Huey, and his albums "Oh" and "Pop, Lock & Drop It" became local hits among DJs and promoters. Huey was featured on a series of mixtapes, one of which, Unsigned Hype, sold out of its run of 8,000 copies, and producer TJ Chapman, who introduced the rapper to Vice President of Jive Records, Mickey "MeMpHiTz" Wright, noticed it in 2006.
Notebook Paper, Huey's debut album for the brand, was released in mid-2007 and AllMusic described it as a mash-up of Nelly, Chingy, and Ludacris. The album debuted at number 26 on the Billboard 200 chart and at number ten on the Top R&B/Hip Albums chart. Its lead single, "Pop, Lock & Drop It," debuted at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his biggest hit to date.
