According to Chris Robinson "When he was a production assistant on music video shoots in New York, he was this annoying kid who was always getting fired because he was so inquisitive and obnoxious.

But I always thought he had something.

Eight years later, I ran into him in New York at a poetry reading and knew he was perfect.

But he had to audition and he didn’t have any money to get to Atlanta, so he went out and hustled money doing poetry in the subways, got on the bus and came down.

He was amazing and he got the part.

He deserved it."
