Who says you can't get a second chance at life? Hip Hop artist, Antonio Taylor who is better known as Eastside Boobie is getting just that after experiencing all the hard knocks of growing up on the Eastside of Louisville. Raised from the concrete of the Clarksdale Projects, Boobie always had a bigger dream than what Louisville could contain. Despite the fact that he had a troublesome childhood he never lost sight of the bigger picture. After making a few wrong decisions that took him off his path, Boobie is now trying to show other young kids from the streets that they can rise despite their obstacles. "Im out here grinding and trying to make it cause I have to. There is no other option or path for me, says Boobie "Im really focused and learning from the mistakes that I've made being . in the streets Ive lost friends in the game and I know what future I want and don't want. I'm still affected by my friend Arlin White who got killed and I hope I can show people a different path. Boobie's close friend, Whisper also got shot and is now permantely blind. "I've seen it all and I just want to be in a position to allow my music to take care of the people I love and care about. I want others to see there's more to life than the difficult times we experience." Boobie is putting Louisville on the music map with his popular song "Had to" featuring Ice WearVezzo. "I was dealt with these cards for a reason and I'm going to make it anyway."
