This black man made it in America. Can you believe how I did it? I had faith and God as my witness. I couldn’t just be an artist, I had to learn the business.

The world and media inspired this video,
As an artist I felt it was a responsibility to shine the light on some of these subjects shown in my video. We living in a day and time where Internet and media rules and the outcome of that is more self destruction and racial tension.
