You can check out the below song he did when he was 12 about Suicide Awareness:
The young artist is only fourteen though he clearly has a bright future ahead of him already. Writing has always acted as an escape from his tough environment for him. Growing up in Washington, DC, opened his eyes to the dark realities of life. His highly-refined skills have even landed him a place at the acclaimed Duke Ellington School of Arts. Though he decided instead to move out to Los Angeles after being called out by Paradigm Talent Agency. With already such a strong body of work at such a tender age, it's clear this is one artist with a bright future ahead of him.
