Today, JAY Z’s Life+Times is releasing the next episode of the new documentary series “Where I’m From.” Presented by vitaminwater®, this series explores the hard work and drive necessary to make it in the competitive worlds of music, art, and style.

This new episode follows Staten Island actor and recording artist Tristan Wilds aka Mack Wilds, and details how his family inspired his pursuit of music and acting while accepting great risk and potential failure to do so. By never giving up, continuing his hustle, and being imaginative, he has built a career spanning an important role in HBO drama The Wire and a Grammy Award nominated album.

Watch Mack Wilds kick a freestlye the last time he hung out with us on Sway in the Morning.
