Maserati E plays music to cope with his brother’s death

Eric "Maserati E" Abercrombie plays at an open mic at San Quentin Prison.

From San Quentin Radio:
Eric "Maserati E" Abercrombie is a 25-year-old guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He's been in prison for eight years. In August, he’s due to get out.

"I don't have to necessarily have to say a word, but once I play the guitar, play the piano, anything like that, it's like I'm letting it all out."
