Hey it’s “CHAKNAX” aka “XANNY”
My real name is Chakib, I’m from north Africa, exactly ALGERIA, I’m 18 years old
Grew up on a rough childhood, where we learned to throw hands and fight before we learned how to read, used to be a good student but I was obliged to survive the street life The gangs be ruling the streets
So I was obliged to join one and fight to survive
It’s like you eat or you get eaten
I been through a hard depression as the most of the teenagers here
They try to cure it with drugs, self harm or suicide
And that’s how I lost a lot of my childhood friends
They died because of overdose and suicide
I tried some of em but I realised that’s none of these can help, they just made it worse Thanks god I could’ve heal from self-harm
Then I told myself that I should change this
The kids be dying everyday silently and no one is doing anything
So I started writing rap songs trying to help them
Then I found myself inspiring and helping them
So I stopped posting freestyles and started giving mental help directly on Instagram
I post some helping stories and text people with mental issues and suicidal thoughts
And it really helped
So I started growing a community and it’s going really well and I’m really happy for what I’m doing
What inspires you to keep going everyday?
The support and the love I receive from my fans that I call em family
Also, I don’t want from anyone to feel what I felt or to go through what I been through
What is some words of wisdom you live by?
-Death before dishonor
-Family before everything Family
-God gets you what you need not what you want
-Never stress over anything because everything happens for a reason
What is a positive message you would like to give others?
Whatever you’re going through, never give up, I’m always here for everyone at anytime, just let me know, I’ll help you and love you forever
Stay positive and keep your head up kings and Queens
I love y’all more than I love myself
Y’all mean the world to me
What is your ultimate goal in life?
To make the world a better place
By ending negativity, hate and poorness
And sharing positivity, love and everything
Last question how do you feel about life and what changes did you make to be where you are now?
It’s like a bounce, sometimes up and sometimes down
It’s not about to stay up all the time, but it’s how you can bounce it back and keep it up and never give up The changes I made was keeping the positive vibes all the time and stay faithful no matter what I been through
And helping others for no personal gain is what got me here where I am right now And last thing
My goals in this life are so high
I believe that I will change the world sooner or later, dead or alive
