Video: Rap Star DJ Black Coffee Tells High School Students How To Fuel Their Dreams


Though rap star DJ Black Coffee is living the life most people only see in their dreams, he never really planned to be caught in the rock star life.

As a matter of fact, the award winning rapper revealed that he used to write down details of his dream life while growing up. Nonetheless, it appears he got more than he dreamed of.

And being a rock star was never part of the plan. In fact, he’s always wanted to be a family man. In a recent interview with Red Bull’s Red Bulletin magazine, Black Coffee said;

“As a kid, I used to take a piece of paper and literally draw my dream house, my dream car and my future family, despite having a dream of being a DJ – because at the time, DJs were not known as family people. But I wanted to have a family and be a DJ. Not have a rock star life.”

But because he didn’t limit himself as a child, despite growing up in difficult conditions, he was able to achieve beyond his dreams. He admits that he actually lives the life of a rock star “every weekend”.

“I never limited myself as a kid, despite where I grew up. I always wanted the best things, even though it was unclear how I would get them,” he said.

Against all odds, he was able to get the things he dreamed about. He was able to achieve this much through self-love and determination.

Thus, our much-celebrated rap star DJ Black Coffee has been going round high schools, teaching young minds how to start building their future from where they are right now.

“I’ve been going to high schools lately, speaking to kids about self-love, sharing my story. (I say) ‘Imagine yourself in a couple of years’ time. Fully. Say to yourself: ‘I’m gonna wear these clothes. I’m gonna drive this kind of car.’ These are things you must speak into life now, when you’re in high school, and it will help you get there,” he said.
