Superman Performed by: Young Hoosier
Trai “Hoosier” Jones, 28 years old grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana in the heart of the “Land” on 29th and Rader. Living with his grandmother he was surrounded by family at all times. Although his family was broken, that is all he knew and could rely on. Growing up, music was always playing, especially by his uncle. It gave him a sense of home , love and peace. His uncle encouraged him to rap, but he was too shy. Hoosier’s mother was always there for him, but his father was absent because he was incarcerated in the state prison for 14 years. As a teenager, he dealt with being the youngest of his mother’s children. It was hard to find his place. By the time he reached high school, his dad was out of prison and his family was reunited. But between school and home, his life became more complicated and caused him to leave Indianapolis for Dayton, Ohio.
In Dayton, Hoosier found himself engulfed in the street life. While hustling on the street, rapping merged into his life. Expressing his life story in his lyrics made his style of rap unique to him. He began to find his own way and create his own lane. Music gave him a reason to do something positive in his troubled surroundings. He began to perform in clubs while he was underage just to make a name for himself. The response made him decide to become more focused on his music and really making it a career. Immaturity was exiting out the backdoor as he was growing into a young man. To Continue Go to Young Hoosiers Reverbnation artist page. www.reverbnation.com/younghoosier317
