He posted the video for his song C7osure, which includes the lyrics: “Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow.
“No more red light for me baby, only green, I gotta go.
“Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold.
“This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old.”
He adds: “Brand new places I’ll choose and I’ll go, I know.
