The critically acclaimed Hip Hop artist recently met with President Obama to discuss the importance of mentorship for todays youth. He wants people to understand how mentorship can affect the lives of our future leaders.
“As a kid, having a mentor was vital to me. Always been there when it counted, allowed me to make some of the most important decisions while growing up,” he says. “So it’s only right that I mentor a younger person with the same wisdom that was given to me. If it helps the next kid be a better person in life, I will forever be aware of my influence and pay it forward. I look where I’m at today and realize that most of my success is owed to the mentors that were in my life.”
