Hip Hop Artist Jwalt Talks Mental Health And His Debut Album 'Yours Truly'

Oakland hip hop artist Jwalt

Oakland hip hop artist Jwalt has opened for rap legends such as Nas and the WuTang Clan. And he’s barely out of high school. This is just the beginning for the rising star. Jwalt talks about mental health and his debut album 'Yours Truly.'

I hope I keep on staying strong, putting out a positive message and remain true to myself.
