One of Attorney General Pam Bondi’s top priorities is cracking down on drugs. And, during a recent Florida Cabinet meeting, she invited a young rapper to spread a similar anti-drug message.

“I go to school and get nothing but A’s…I want to be somebody,” said Curtis Bean Jr., rapping one of his songs “Wanna Be Somebody.”

His rap name is “Kid Balla,” and the eight-year-old boy came to Wednesday’s Cabinet meeting as a guest of Attorney General Pam Bondi.

“I met Curtis at Drug Free America Foundation, and this is an eight-year-old who is not only is on honor roll at Bethune Academy in Haines City, but also is a rapper,” said Bondi. “He has a positive message thanks to his parents—his mom and dad are incredible—and they show kids that it’s okay to be anti-drugs, to be positive about grades.”
