His mother made the difficult decision to move her family so that they could grow up in safety. First in New York and then in Toronto, K'naan faced many challenges. Like so many other immigrants, he had to make a place for himself in a world of alien customs, clothes, and language. His road was a hard one and he lost many friends to violence.
