Charles Hilson, stage name “Coach”, is one of many people in the world who has experienced hard times in life. Growing up in a poverty stricken home in Niagara Falls, NY, “Coach” has witnessed and been a part of troubling times. At an early age he witnessed his members of his family smoking crack cocaine, and survived a kidnapping from his dad when he was just a child. At the time “Coach” was too young to understand the things that were taking place in his life, but as he got older, he started to realize all that had taken place during his childhood. “Coach” started to write out his emotions in raps and realized that he had a talent for rapping. He then joined a local rap group called “Hot Spitters” when he was 16. As time progressed “Coach” started to stand out as an artist, and decided to become a solo artist when he was 20. Focusing hard on exposing his talents as a solo artist, “Coach” put out a YouTube video of one of his first songs titled “Put this big boy in your life”. His video reached 5,836 views and “Coach” began to receive recognition from the people of his community.
