"The song is about people not being around when you struggling and grinding to pursue your dreams and goals, but want to be there when you start winning," said Houdini.
Produced by Kyduh Beatz, the song is from Houdini's "Embrace the Struggle" album that debuted on Dec. 15, 2017. Released on Houdini's independent Cake Boss Life Entertainment (http://www.cakebosslife.com/)
The multi-layered and faceted video opens with Houdini rapping in the Jefferson Projects where he grew up and amply demonstrates major problems in today's society. As Houdini is shooting the video, someone calls the police to report he's fighting and causing a disturbance. The video ends with Houdini on the precipice of a mountain, symbolizing life on the edge when someone is struggling in pursuit of their dreams.

The gifted artist came to the notice of Tunde Balogun with Atlantic Records who said, "Although his music was good enough, he didn't have the fan base for the type of deal he was pursing." Working as an independent artist, Houdini has succeeded in garnering an extensive fan base and following.
The release of his "You Wasn't There" video marks another benchmark on Houdini's journey of success. He's lived the experiences that he sings about and wears many hats – rapper, songwriter and entertainer – working and touring with artists that include Skippa Da Flippa, Rich the Kid, OJ da Juiceman, and Future and he now has his own merchandise brand (https://www.facebook.com/
