John Harkins: Talented Rapper Pushing for Stardom Despite Numerous Challenges

John Harkins represents talent and hard work because right from a young age, he already understood what hard work means and has consistently remained true to those virtues. Driven by his goals to become a rapper, John has worked minimum wage all his life and still does even after a strong start to his music career.

Originally from Summit, New Jersey, the 23-year-old played Lacrosse in High School, and thanks to his face-off abilities. He was pretty good at the sport until last year when he decided to focus on being a rapper and rapping for a living, fulfilling his lifelong dream of becoming a famous rapper. According to him, John released his first rap single this year, and there are more songs he is yet to release. In his words, “I always wanted to be a famous rapper my whole life, so I decided last year I would start to pursue my dreams of becoming a famous rapper. I am so blessed with the work ethic god gave me, along with my talented voice and good looks. I am a very hard worker and have just released my first rap song. I have many more rap songs to come in the future, and I am very excited to work hard at my goals.”

Despite his strong start to his music career, John found his life spiraling down thanks to marijuana addiction until he checked himself into Sierra Tucson rehab in Arizona in November in an attempt to beat his addiction and make his life better. He has been sober for almost 40 days, and he claims he has no plans of ever flirting with or around substance use, abuse, or anything that could get him addicted.

John believes he is unique and building a unique brand because he is a very talented rapper and a very good looking kid. At 23 years old and a very hard worker who has worked minimum wage jobs even up until now. One of his most prominent attributes according to him is his will and determination to succeed. He described himself as uniquely talented at singing and acting. In 2011, he attended the New York Film Academy 2011 to study acting camp and learned a lot of information from successful TV and Movie actors. He also explained that he used to run a mile in 8th grade in 5:49 and always came first in his middle school cross country races. He has also had to run 6.5 miles every day to stay in that kind of running shape; this is one of many examples of how hard of a worker he is.

On what separates him from his competition, he said, “My talented voice, good looks, and will to succeed. Most rappers are not good looking (like me) and do not have a talented voice or the work ethic. I am very determined to make it to the top of the rap game and have my picture and name known by everyone worldwide.”
