PLEASE GIVE ME A LISTEN. I HAVE TALENT AND A STORY TO BE HEARD AND ALL I NEED IS THE RIGHT PEOPLE TO HEAR MY MUSIC. THIS IS EVERYTHING I'VE EVER WANTED. I STARTED RAPPING BACK IN MIDDLE SCHOOL DUE TO THE FACT THAT I WAS BULLIED, MY FATHER HAD JUST GOT DEPORTED BACK TO HIS HOME COUNTRY, AND I NEVER HAD AS MUCH MONEY TO LOOK AS STYLISH AS EVERYBODY ELSE OR HAVE THE BEST BRANDS, BUT I DIDN'T LET THAT DETERMINE WHO I'AM. I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND MAKE MUSIC PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO. I WANT TO HELP OUT THE KID IN THE BACK OF THE CLASS WHO CRIED DAY AND NIGHT BECAUSE PEOPLE MADE HIM/HER FEEL LIKE THEY DONT BELONG. I NEVER WANT ANYBODY TO GO THROUGH WHAT I WENT THROUGH, BUT LETS FAST FORWARD A COUPLE OF MONTHS LATER. IN THE FALL OF 2014 I RELEASED MY FIRST EP AND IT WAS DOING REALLY GOOD. PEOPLE AROUND MY SCHOOL WERE STARTING TO KNOW ME AND I WAS CREATING A LOT OF BUZZ ON SOCIAL MEDIA. ONE DAYI GOT AN EMAIL FROM A GUY WHO SAID HE WANTED TO BE MY MANAGER AND TO GET ME INTO ACTUAL STUDIOS AND WORK WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE. OF COURSE, I SAID YES AND MY MOTHER ASKED TO SPEAK WITH HIM. I DIDNT THINK MUCH OF IT AT THE TIME. BUT ONE DAY MY MOM JUST CAME AND PICKED ME UP FROM SCHOOL AND DROVE ME STRAIGHT TO ST. LOUIS. I REALLY WISH I WAS MAKING THIS UP RIGHT NOW, BUT ITS THE TRUTH. IT TURNED OUT THAT HIM AND MY MOM KNEW EACH OTHER AND FELL IN LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER, WHILE SHE HAD ANOTHER HUSBAND AND AN ENTIRE FAMILY AT THE TIME. IT WAS REALLY WEIRD FOR ME. AT FIRST I WAS EXCITED BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS MY BIG MOMENT, I THOUGHT I WAS GONNA HAVE A SHOT AT BEING A SUCCESS AND MAKING MUSIC SO GOOD THAT I COULD JUST BLOW UP, BUT IT TURNED OUT THAT I WAS WRONG. THE NEXT 3 MOTHS OF MY LIFE WAS SPENT GOING IN AND OUT INTO HOTELS ALL OVER ST. LOUIS. I HAD NO FAMILY OTHER THAN MY MOTHER THERE WITH ME AND THE WEIRD MANAGER GUY, WHICH IS HER BOYFRIEND NOW. BUT I WAS STARTING TO REALIZE THAT THINGS WERENT ALL AS THEY SEEMED BECAUSE ONE DAY I CAUGHT HIM AND MY MOM DOING DRUGS (NOT LIKE WEED BUT SOME REALLY HARDCORE STUFF LIKE CRACK) AND I TRIED TO FIGHT HIM. AS SOON AS THAT HAPPENED, THEY DROPPED ME BACK OFF IN INDIANA AND MY SISTER FOUND ME AND ADOPTED ME. WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE MY MOM IS AT TO THIS DAY, BUT I TRY NOT TO LET THAT EFFECT ME TOO MUCH. ALL I WANNA DO IS STILL CHASE MY DREAM OF BEING ONE OF THE BEST MUSICIANS OF MY GENERATION. ALL IM ASKING FOR IS A CHANCE IF YOU GIVE ME THAT I WOULD APPRECIATE IT MORE THAN LIFE ITSELF.
