Las Vegas is a city full of a little bit of everything and I’ve met some interesting characters since moving here in late 2009.
One of the things that you get to learn about Las Vegas when you become situated is just how many transits come and make the city their new home in an effort to change their life.
Dreamers often find themselves out here alone, with their families left back home, and finding a sense of drive and support in Las Vegas can often be tough.
That’s why I’m constantly amazed by the attitude and spirit of one Antoine Powell, known better as “Narley” to those who know him and his antics well.
A native of Ohio, Narley moved to Las Vegas about a year-and-a-half ago to pursue his dreams in the field of music. An aspiring artist with an uncanny ability to tap into the energy around him, you could never guess Narley’s true story just from hearing his music.
Hustle Boss linked up with Narley through the young gunner Daquan Mays and it was easy to spot the instant connection between the two friends.
Narley is paralyzed from the waist down, stemming from an accident that happened when he was just 16 years old when he was shot in his wrist, lung, leg, and back, but that hasn’t deterred his spirits or vision.
You can’t define the kind of positivity that Narley brings to the table and you can tell by the way he speaks about his future ambitions that he has a lot of things in store for his life.
Hustle Boss will soon be telling Narley’s story to the world and we guarantee you will see things in a different perspective once we are done.
Stay tuned for more from Narley’s crazy life. For now please give him a FOLLOW on Instagram
