I have released seven mixtapes five music videos, my goal and purpose is the show most people that they can be entrepreneurs if they take their time and have the correct funds and go about it right. I’m not just a hip hop artist, well versatile and Alzheimer’s such as acting rapping writing directing and all that has anything to do with entertainment. My goal and purpose is to lead as well as follow. But to show people did they can be and do what they’re meant to be and what they’re on this Earth for they just have to follow their purpose for their higher power first remain humble and work hard and only hang with people that want to see you succeed anybody that’s mediocre are just okay with getting by escape from them immediately.
