Sean Forbes is a 31 year old deaf rapper from Detroit. Sean wasn’t born deaf; when he was one he got a very high fever that blew out his ear drums and he hasn’t been able to hear since. He recently performed in our school and we had an opportunity to interview him as part of our Sports & Entertainment Marketing Program.

We asked him, “were there any difficulties growing up deaf” he responded by saying that sports were very difficult for him because he didn’t know when to start and stop playing.  He told us that he “loved music since he was a little kid.” He started playing the drums when he was young and was inspired to be a drummer when he got older. When he got older, he figured out if he was going to go anywhere with his music career then he would have to sing.  In 2006, his dream of being a musician came true upon singing a record with the Bass Brothers who were discovered by Eminem in Detroit. His band has recorded 50 songs and they are looking forward to releasing their first album on April 2nd called “Perfect Imperfection.”
