He has never been to jail, he graduated high school, has no kids, is not married. and now is currently working overseas in Afghanistan as a civilian contractor. At just 24 years old he is a representation of what we need more of from our young men in the black community. That not every black man sells drugs for a living. But yet you can work a 9-5 job, graduate school and still be successful. He wants to be a role model for younger black kids especially black males in bad living conditions, (schools, neighborhoods, family ect. ) and to let them know that you can be somebody and you can make it out, and be successful because he did it.
