Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?
I am 5RACKS, 5000, J5. An artist from Rockford Illinois where I grew up in poverty and watched and learned the game of hustle up front and personal. Only male in my family without a felony, middle son of 3 boys and the realest of the real, I keep it 5000. My music tells all of my street stories and some of my military stories because most of them would be unbelievable anyways to most audiences. I do this for real and all of my music is real because I don’t write before I come to the studio. I want my music to come as present as possible. Godbless
