Afternoons on 11: Local Rapper rebuilds life

(KPLR) – On Monday’s Afternoons on 11, meet Koran Bolden, Bolden is a former national recording artist who signed a $150,000 contract with Def Jam Records. Bolden says he was on his way to the top in the music industry with a bright future to be in the spotlight of MTV, BET and the Hip Hop world when he was dropped for no reason. All of a sudden, the fame and fortune quickly faded.

After the contract was terminated, Bolden learned from that experience and knew he had to rebuild his life and career. The former rapper is now a motivational speaker and the Founder and CEO of Street Dreamz Artist Development Center located in the St. Louis Outlet Mall.

Street Dreamz is a recording studio aimed at local youth to make positive music.
