In his new track “Just Truth,” the Los Angeles native pairs
with illustrious production duo Trigo Fare to create a track that speaks to one
of the more vital components of life, staying true to one’s self while chasing
your dreams. The message in the lyrics is only amplified by the striking chords
Trigo Fare supplies to back it. Upon first listen, it is evident that you are
not listening to your average 12 year-old, and surely not your average
NAHOA LIFE, whose name means the bold and brave, is a 12
year old quadruple threat. He sings, raps, and plays the piano in addition to
co-writing all of his material. He hails from a town just outside of Los
