‘if it wasn’t for doing Hip-Hop school with Ruff & Ruby on a Saturday I would have got into ‘bare trouble’ in the shopping centre causing chaos & stealing - my YO worker told me about it & ive been working on my ‘verse’ talented to tell my story of child abuse & being in the care system- I even designed a tee shirt to big up my mates & my city that said ‘STOKE- Swag That Other Kids Envy – R & R helped me to realise that I can turn about what happened to me for good & not hate the world cos’ of it.
