His mother is white and his father is Black, spoke with HITS Daily Double about getting criticism from both races, his opinions about police and how he's thankful that his 9-month-old daughter is too young to remember the events of this year. "I’m trying to bring everybody together, and they want me to pick a side," he said. "I even get pushed from one side to the other. I’m both, and both push back. So I try to understand and see each without losing the other. "When people start bad-mouthing me, I get upset," he continued. "And it’s both sides too. I’m both and I’m neither, depending on how you see it, but it ends up with me up in the socials deleting comments." He also spoke about trying to raise his biracial daughter, Kingsley Rose, with his wife Katelyn during a turbulent time. "2020’s been tough in general," he said. "I’m glad my daughter doesn’t know what’s going on, and she’s not going to remember. Having a biracial daughter, I have a lot of people coming at me, asking, 'How are you going to explain to her when she’s pulled over?' and 'What are you going to tell her about the difference between her and her white friends?'" He has also tried to stay focused on unity, which has included releasing the song "Worldwide Beautiful" in June in which he sings that people "ain't the same, but they're all equal."
