OHustle & Motivate, I sit down with real-life underdogs in the world of sports, entertainment, and more. We bring you entertaining, informative conversations shedding light on how these individuals operate.

Their mindset, how they started, what they’re up to now, and how they overcame adversity on the path to greatness.

The aim is to get your wheels turning.

Realizing that a simple mindset shift opens up a world of possibilities.  Because in the end, you can do anything you believe you can achieve.

Quiet and shy growing up, Anthony John turned to music as an outlet. Through consistent hard work, his confidence grew over time.

And it’s taken him a long way.

A short time ago, he won the Funk Flex freestyle contest. Today, he’s an up-and-coming artist working with the likes of established hip-hop heavyweights such as Cassidy and Mark Battles.
