At an age where most of his peers are only worried about passing their driver’s test, 16-year-old Sean Kingston has even more to think about - because this sophomore already has a record deal. Using music as a tool in dealing with his difficult childhood, this precocious rapper quickly made his voice heard, and has already shared a stage with artists like Ludacris and Trick Daddy. Kingston hopes to get his message out to an even wider audience with the release of his debut album. “When people hear my music, I want them to be inspired,” he says. “It’s all about being true.” And with the release of his slick street anthem Colors, featuring The Game & Rick Ross, you can expect to hear much more from Kingston before he graduates high school.
