I'm from Detroit, Michigan. I moved to Utah when I was 16. I am 39 years old, have 3 kids, and, unfortunately, have been in and out of prison most of my adult life. Mom was 15 when she had me, making her more like a sister to me. I was homeless at the age of 18.


I promised myself I would never struggle again, but I find myself incarcerated again. I believe in loyalty, appreciate reality, and hustle hard for those close to me. Years ago, I started a rap group. I went to college for massage therapy and mechanics.


Drawing, tattooing, and music (I have a rap group, 801 Family). I played drums for four years and piano for 12. Sports and rock climbing. Rebuilding cars, bullet bikes, and snowboarding. Start my own business, open a sober living, and start a landscaping business.



As I sit here dreaming of you

Praying to god that my dreams come true 

you are the very thought that gets me through 

the day when I come home soon with you

My heart stays


1st verse: 


Thinkin’ in my mind that this is right

And knowing in my heart with you, I Want to spend my life - 

how’d I get so lucky to have you as my girl

Give me a chance, and I’ll give you the world. 

Life is hard, baby and people are mean. 

But you can keep your head high and lean on me if you need.

Every day’s a struggle but worth it in the end. 

To be with you as love and best Friend.


2nd verse: 


Wake up in the morning. You're the first thing on my mind. 

Day in, day out, thinking about you all the time. 

Give us a chance; we can mend your heart together, 

ride or die & we’ll always have each other.

I live the crazy life, run the streets day and night. 

I’m not used to having a partner, but I want you by my side.

Love is a crazy thing, but something we can share.

When you need me, baby girl, guess what? Just call, and I’ll be there.
