Summary

“I feel like the message in what I’m doing is a necessity in my culture,” he tells MTV News. “As a first-generation-born Nigerian American, I honestly and genuinely have two different experiences,” he tells MTV News. “I know life ain’t easy, and it sure ain’t fair / But what got you here won’t take you there.” The track and the accompanying video reveals Nwigwe as he is: clean, authentic with old-school flair, and family-oriented.That’s what sets the rapper apart: his music is unapologetically faith-based — but the objective, he insists, is not to convert. Having amassed a cult social following, he is reclaiming rap as a shape-shifting force, making purpose popular, and highlighting music’s ability to burrow deep in the psyche to yield cultural change, creating music that reminds people they were “made to do what no one’s done.” Consistently carving his own path in the music business as an independent artist, he’s proven that knowing who you are and remaining true to self leads to influence.
