( @knutsohlxre )is my ticktok
My name is Tjay Robert Knutson. I am 32 years old. From a small town in Saskatchewan called Estevan,but, I have huge goals to be a song writer and performer and to show my beautiful children the proper way to enjoy life, for it is short and there is no time to waste. And I want to inspire people to do greatness because there’s not enough good in the world. I never knew what I was doing when I was growing up. Part of my life was dark but I found a Passion for music and it has changed me for the better. I write music with deep emotion and with all my heart because I know a lot of people can relate to what I like to sing about. I know music helped me through my dark days, so, I know it will help somebody else. I don’t care about money or fame, I just want my music to be heard by everyone and I hope it helps someone else get over obstacles that they may encounter throughout their life. After my brothers death, it made me want to write music even more. I’m so happy that I have the opportunity to show people the passion and love I have for hip-hop. Sending my love from Canada yours truly (real g.)
