Harris has overcome a lot of adversity in his life and has a story worthy of a motion picture script.
Harris, who attended Hyde Park Academy, suffered tragedy with the loss of his mother, brother and cousin, NBC Sports reports.
His troubles continued while attending Howard Junior College when he and two teammates were arrested on a theft of property charge.
Harris was able triumph over his shortcomings and earn an athletic scholarship to Texas A&M following a stellar season at College of Southern Idaho.
Harris hails from 78th and 79th street over East in Chicago. Harris reps N.L.M.B. and has a “Fazoland” tattoo in full display on his neck.
The ink is in honor of slain brother Fazion Robinson. Robinson was murdered on April 12, 2010 in an alleged gang-related shooting. He was 18.
Harris is close friends with rising Chicago rappers and N.L.M.B. affiliates Lil Bibby and Lil Herb.
Bibby gave Harris a special shout out months ago on IG.
“I’m proud of you cuz @fab_blessed078,” the caption on the “Free Crack” rapper’s post read.
