“Rap is an art-form that allows our brain to create a new reality through language. Starring in a movie helped me realize the power of words and perception, and this enables me to work with untapped and developing talent at all levels. It is a daily pleasure to walk this path alongside anyone else bold enough to pursue their dreams.”
