Raheem Jarbo’s life changed in a single afternoon, 10 years ago.

“In 2011, my song Avalanche blew up on Reddit while I was in the middle of class teaching,” he says. “I started getting texts, people being like ‘Hey, man. You’re going viral!’ I looked back at the Reddit post I made and there were over 20,000 upvotes with people going nuts over it. They’re emailing me, they’re buying the album, they’re supporting me. That same day I started penning my resignation letter, thanking my principal for everything. I told him ‘I’m gonna chase my dream.’ I didn’t expect it to last nearly this long, but I’m so glad that it has.” 

I grew up in that 8-bit era… those sounds make me feel like I’m a kid again
