I had fear of rejection and how people were going to treat me, but I told myself I’d have to deal with this.” NovaCain didn’t always consider himself a “music person.” As a teenager, he was more concerned with the football field and basketball court. Today, NovaCain has earned himself a following on social media, and his music has been streamed more than 100,000 times on Spotify. “I couldn’t play sports anymore, but music gave me a another craft. I want to show kids you don’t have to be like other rappers in the game to make good songs. I just want to be a role model.”
