Nineteen year old Baltimore native singer/songwriter Sonne Riley has had more than his share of trials and tribulations so it is no wonder that he feels at home covering life topics like depression and suicide.

He just dropped a banger with YBS Skola called “I Just Wanna” on which they make it clear to check your feelings at the door that appears on Skola’s “No Pen Just Paper Reloaded” project, which drops tonight on My Mixtapez.
