Hip-Hop Artist Kursive, who lives in Maryland, is the 5th incredibly inspiring interview in our Rebirth series. He has dealt with much tragic loss in his young life by channeling his efforts into artistic expression through music, by practicing humility and gratitude, and through entrepreneurship via his record company, an apparel brand, and other businesses. Kursive recently wrote a song titled “Reminds Me of You” which has helped him express his grief and loss. The song is dedicated to his brother, and is also written for his cousin, his best friend, his mother and another good friend, all of whom he has lost. You will hear the words to this song during this interview!
