Trials & Tribulations
B.R. who is 21 years old, like a lot of people from the hood has suffered from the hard knocks of life. With his mom barely around and no father he had found strength in his caring grandmother Katie who was like a mother to him. Tragically she passed at the young age of 54 while B.R. was 15. With no one else to count on, and no where to turn B.R. had to fend for himself. Though this was the most trying time in his life, he found the wisdom and courage to grow stronger. 'Yea...it's hard when the person that cares most about you in your life passes, it's almost like losing a part of yourself.' explains B.R. In the midst of all the tragedy he still continued to do well in school, and in sports, but at the same time growing closer to the streets. With no parents able to financially support him, and no family to help him out, he had to quickly get up on his grind. With the influence of the streets and a life like a movie B.R. found himself needing a way to vent...causing him to look no where else but music. 'Music's just one of those things that let me run wild with my mind and emotions. When you out here in the hood niggas don't give you the time a day to shed a tear, so that's why i gotta make the song cry.' 'Ya dig?'

'I was having fun but something was missing, and i knew what that was.' he said.
