Get to Know 'Envy Me' Rapper Calboy: Watch
For this week’s episode of “You Should Know,” Billboard sat down with Chicago-based rapper Calboy to find out what the most impactful words of wisdom he ever received were, who his dream collaborations are, and more.
Asked what the best advice he has ever been given was, Calboy tells Billboard that it is to stay focused. “Everybody tell me that…stay level-headed, stay focused,” he says.
"That's the best advice anybody can give to anybody, I think…cause it applies to whatever you want to do in life. You gotta stay focused on whatever you want to do to in order to succeed. It's the simplest, but if you take heed, it's the most important, to stay focused.”
