When he joined his family’s gospel ensemble at age five, singer KeAnthony Dillard knew that he had a future in music. Unfortunately, between his childhood and adulthood, Dillard became entangled in the street life, culminating in an eight-year prison bid for aggravated robbery. Now, ready to share his experiences with the world, the Nashville native prepares for the release of his forthcoming debut, A Hustla’z Story. In one of the chapters of his story, I Thought, KeAnthony explains the sadness he felt after several of his friends were gunned down. Assisted by the production power quartet of Tank, The Underdogs, and Steve Russell, look for I Thought to be a hit among all the softhearted hustlers. After numerous delays, A Hustla’z Story has been set for release this summer.
