Be The Real ____.

Leiah
Leiah is an eighteen-year-old rapper, born and raised in Los Angeles. She raps about three things: money, drugs, and girls. I met her at a sandwich shop in Inglewood. She just graduated high school and holds two jobs. She lives with her mom. Her dad is somewhere, just nowhere important. She talked about college and moving out of her mom’s place, but she’s still working out the road map. She is a charming young person on the cusp of adulthood with wisdom well beyond her years with a voice that should be heard.

Just after graduation, she got shot. She doesn’t think it will be her last.
