American Hustle

Xphaqtor, ATLANTA, GA -- Meet “Low Key”, a nine year-old rapper from Atlanta. Rapping since he was just four years old, Low Key seems to already have developed a strong sense for how to promote his music. This photo was taken outside a local Atlanta record store where Low Key was selling his mixtapes. Although his aunt and sister were nearby, Low Key did not need any assistance interacting with passers-by—most of whom walked away with five fewer dollars and Low Key’s latest music. Low Key exemplified “hustle”, and he is a great example of someone using their talent and limited resources to chase a dream. Let’s hope he makes it.
