It all started eleven years ago, the greatest journey I’ve ever embarked on. Becoming an inspirational hip hop artist has always been one of my most fascinating goals. A few main reasons why are because I want to be able to support my family financially, I want the world to hear my story, and last I just love to write!

By this time I was already in my early twenties, everyone was getting much older and much wiser.
