0:08 I got into drugs at a young age, when I was 9.

Born in England in Burton-on-Trent, Kelly grew up in the notorious South Central hood of L.A. The colors he wore identified him as a member of the Crips, the infamous local gang, and two years after he smoked his first joint, at age 11, he was arrested for the first time. It would be several more years before Kelly kicked drugs for good and began working as a mentor with L.A. youth. In 2012, Kelly was part of a team of runners who completed a grueling 26-day, 965 km (600 mile) race from the south coast of England to Edinburgh, Scotland, to promote drug-free living, delivering drug education lectures and giving TV and radio interviews. The Truth About Drugs fit in perfectly with the drug education Kelly had already been doing independently. “I’m alive today,” he says, “so I want to spread the message.”
