Despite Being Deaf, Rapper Sean Forbes Set To Release Debut Album

Posted: Updated:

To say that rapper Sean Forbes is passionate about his music would be an understatement as Forbes lives, breathes and feels the beat.

Some songs are upbeat and funny while others are very personal, such as the song "Don't Let Anything Hold You Back."

Forbes says many people told him he would never be able to record music because he is profoundly deaf. The 31-year-old says he lost his hearing as a baby after contracting spinal meningitis.

But Forbes' parents, who both are musicians, quickly realized he was drawn to music and that even though he couldn't hear it, he could feel the vibrations.

Forbes says getting a drum set at the age of 5 changed his life.
