Throughout his struggle with sickle cell anemia, Cory Smith, aka Young Dibiase, has used music as an outlet to express his pain and frustration with the disorder.
His first album, “Trilogy,” was released Friday.
Smith is the youngest of four siblings and grew up in a military family. He was born in Germany but considers Radcliff his home.
As a child he was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia and knew he would have to work twice as hard in life because of the disease.
