Growing up life wasn't easy for Kashmir, his father turned to drugs when he was just 4 years old, disappearing never to return. Leaving his mother to raise him alone, working day and night shifts. In order to keep the bills paid, food on the table, clothes on his back and shoes on his feet. It wasn't long before she gave up, turning to drugs just like his father did. Kashmir turned to the streets for the love his mother no longer shared with him. Thinking it must be nice to live life with no worries or struggles.
