Filmmaker Justin Escolona Documents His Unique Friendship With Superstar Khalid

Posted by on September 14, 2017

19 year old R&B/Pop sensation Khalid came out of nowhere in 2017, literally. From being virtually unknown to becoming quite possibly one of the biggest ‘new stars’ in the music industry alongside names like Sean Mendes and Post Malone. His voice, soulful, his smile, infectious. Khalid seems like the type of guy you want to become friends with, and thanks to Justin Escalona we can take a look behind the scenes and see that the 19-year-old superstar Khalid is truly someone you want to hang with.

Escalona who garnered a massive following before the age of 18 as part of the internationally known FaZe Clan, has since started his own collective called 1340, and has grown his following to well over 240k subscribers on YouTube. Escalona moved to Los Angeles after graduating high school where he has since attended USC’s school of Film. In his short few years in LA Escalona has grown his network and become friends with some of the most influential artists in the industry as well as key contributor to the growth of tomorrow’s stars.

The day after his 21st birthday Escolona decided to drop this short film, an ode to his friend Khalid to simply say, “I’m proud of you bro”.
