Well, my clothing brand is called Zacari, which means, ‘The Lord Remembers’. I believe that everybody has been given a gift. And I think they should use that gift to help inspire people to find their purpose in life. Whatever career you have – whether it be an athlete, actor, singer or doctor – you should use it to inspire your community and to help others. And that will inspire them to do what they need to do to inspire the next. It creates a domino effect. And that’s what I want to do with my brand. I want to inspire people with my art.
Also, with me being from Jackson, I feel like there’s a lot around Jackson that can be improved. And of course I want to make money for myself. But I also want to use my money to help rebuild Jackson to what it should be.”
