"I want people to feel like they can do anything after listening to my music."
K: When I was in Junior High School I learned how to play the guitar, but I wasn’t really inspired to continue with it. Then I began learning how to play snare drum and other kinds of percussion instruments for the school concert band, and it was a whole new world. At that point in time, I just enjoyed playing music. Once I got to high-school it started to get more serious because I was involved in more bands, and a lot more was expected of me. At first I wasn’t really any good, but I started to practice more and more and that is when my passion really started to take off! Every day I wanted to learn something new, and I was able to practice non stop which helped me increase my overall skill. Before rapping, my main passion came from playing the drums.
K: My latest single is "Everything 2020" and just like the title hints, my inspiration came from the year 2020. The pandemic really messed everything up, and I found it hard in the beginning to adapt. The world was in chaos and everything was on edge no matter what is was. By the time May came around, I was already numb to all the emotions, current events, and new communication methods but I still needed some closure. At the end of the year, I took a trip to NYC and my longtime friend & producer, Tariq Allen, showed me this beat that he made with another one of my longtime friends, Sal Arena. Once I heard the beat, I knew that this was my closure and I began to talk briefly about my feelings from the past year. After listening to the recording, it was just really relatable and honestly something I’ve never done before. Usually I just get to rapping, but this was pure jazz. "Everything 2020" is a song you can listen to by yourself, in a jazz club, or even in a history lesson in school because it isn’t just me singing the blues... it is me reminiscing about a moment in history that will never be forgotten.
