“I feel like I gave so much to this YouTube,” he says in the video. “I have been doing this for six years. It was all my life. I want some type of mystery to my life. You know what I meant. You got to know me for six years We got to know each other. You know my family at this point. You know where I am from, what college I went to. Everything is documented. That’s the good part of you knowing me,” he explained. “But for the new people who discover me, I only want them to know my music. I want to be more closed off. I want to be more mysterious. I want to focus strictly on being an artist.”
Should he have left his videos up for the fans?
