Hip Hop back to the essence. What the games been lacking. I’m bringing my story.
If you was not involved in music what do you think you would be doing?
Honestly dead or in jail! Music was my escape route. I needed something else to focus on other than the streets. I was glad I was able to make that transition before it was to late. I needed to better my life and wanted to do it a legal way. I gave up on my hoop dreams. I’m just happy music saved my life.
