“I have experienced so much in life. I have learned many things and I feel like music, particularly hip hop, can be that conduit to not only tell my story but to help encourage others to tell theirs,” the artist said.

Building our communities and our culture is paramount. This is a "together task" no one man can accomplish this feat alone. That is why it is imperative that we work together as people who are impacted by negative systems that are in place.
