Allocai is a 21 year old recording artist originally from Jamaica. Allocai started singing and writing music professionally 5 years ago after a life changing event almost drove him to suicide. A few months passed while barely hanging on to his sanity, his depression got worst especially with the academic pressures of being a medical student. At his lowest point his grandmother encouraged him to go back to his roots and find a way to express his emotions. Her words led him to rediscover his voice and talent to find a deeper purpose for it all. Allocai used this as a form of emotional therapy to express feelings that he couldn`t express in a conversation with a therapist.
After months of training and developing his craft Allocai decided to drop out of Med School and venture to LA to pursue a career in the arts in 2017. While in LA Allocai founded the record label Tree4ort Records, at which time he decided to work on his album `CRUELTY`.
The song, Cloud 9, is from the album `CRUELTY`. This album tells the story of the ordeal with Allocai`s father by empathizing the experience to the audience through emotions rather than words, as each song represents a particular emotion he experienced on his road to recovery.
This song (Cloud 9) represents one of his lowest points, drug abuse.
