“You see people fall apart out here, man. Drugs and alcohol get to them. I see people that I used to hang out with, everyday, shooting up and shit. It’s a hell of a jungle out here, bro. People don’t get it. They just ride by and think that it’s just a nice neighborhood. It can be a jungle. You have people that live here and have to deal with this shit. I stay away from it all. I just stay positive, bro. It’s some negative ass shit. It’s heartbreaking, it’s tragic.   I’m just trying to make my world a better place. To tell you the truth, I’m going out west, bro. I’m going to Cali. I belong in a booth, using my vocals. I’m trying to be rockstar. I’m an artist. I already have a graphic design degree, so I’m going to take it and run with it.   What keeps me focused on my passion is my drive. My grandpa brought my family from nothing. He set a goal for himself to have a million dollars before he turned 30 and he did it. I got some big shoes to fill. Plus, I’m the first born. That’s my motivation.   My motive is just peace and love everywhere. I don’t leave no bad blood anywhere, even with my exes. I just don’t do it. I stay peaceful.” - Corey, Portland
