The Savannah, Georgia teenager is the daughter of the murdered rapper, Camoflauge.
Los Angeles, CA – Among the contestants to appear on Tuesday (May 29) at the premiere of America's Got Talent was teen rapper Flau'jae.
From Savannah, Georgia, Flau'jae revealed to the judges that his father was killed by gun violence before she was born.
"Before I was born, my father was a rapper. And he died before I was born, so that he could not fulfill his dream. So, that is what I am here to do," Flau'jae said, before you start the test.
As fate would have it, his father was from the bush, 21 years old, the rapper Camoflauge, who was murdered in May of 2003, as his buzz began to creep out of the local area. His murder still remains unsolved.
