At the time he realized his parents were struggling even though they gave him the world, no jobs came after graduation and he embedded the saying of many successful people, ITS NOT WHAT YOU KNOW- IT S WHO YOU KNOW. With that being, only people OH knew were hustlers so he began hustling but still yet humble. Granted his freedom of no criminal record OH was still for filling his dream in the music industry and was open minded about a legitimate way to living lavish and having success.
