Meet Likeith Carmel

Today we’d like to introduce you to Likeith Carmel.

Likeith, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
While in the military I was stab in the arm protecting a lady from killing herself and after that combine with PTSD I went threw a slump, and my grand dad always told me whiskey and work could get you threw life, so I took on the name whiskey boy and zoned in on my craft of being an artist not really sticking to any script just being myself got me here after I lost myself one day in the mirror he said “wtf are you doing bro” if I’m not great it’s my fault and I’ve always seen a life for myself, so it keeps me going.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Dealing with PTSD being hospitalized dealing with a stew of issue my identity was stolen while I was overseas in the military I got stabbed for protecting a family and losing my brother right before deployment it’s been a real roller coaster ride say the least but I made it threw and it drives me leaving a blaze of glory in my wake.

Please tell us about your art.
Whiskey boy is who I am I’m an artist I make music for everybody rather you outside with the thang or at a rave I’m trying to connect to people show them that you can be yourself and be cool and while I’m not doing that I train children in boxing to give them an outlet I also train adults, but I’m known for whiskey either going to rage up and be standing on something tall smashing beer cans together like stone cold Steve Austin or whiskey with the smile that’s always trying to help those less fortunate.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I wouldn’t drink so much probably a Lil less spending and more saving.
