"Both of my parents were raised in local projects of Chicago, my father (William Gaines) was raised in Cabrini Green and my mother (Jamillah Gaines) was raised in The Lonely Projects. Appreciating the hard work, dedication, and sacrifices my parents gave to raise my brother and I with a professional "go-getter" mindset, every decision I make is a direct reflection of their guidance and wisdom."
