BL What makes your style different from other young artists on the rise today?
KC I’m still trying to establish my style. I think a lot of artists rap about “swag”, drugs, or stick to being commercial; I just rap about my life and about what I feel.
BL Who (or what) has influenced you as an artist?
KC I started out just producing, but then a former neighbor saw my talent and convinced me to start rapping. People who influence me are T.I., Jay Z, Big Boi, and Ludacris.
BL What gets you into your artistic zone?
KC Hearing a good beat in a studio or mellow setting. I can’t write around a bunch of people or a lot of commotion.
BL What song do you feel best describes your style? Why?
KC One song from my mixtape “The Extravaganza” that best describes me is “Turn The Speakers Up”. This particular song talks about the goals I want to accomplish.
BL What do you want listeners to take from your music?
KC That nothing is impossible to accomplish. Set goals for yourself and stay on a positive note.
BL Where do you plan to go with your music?
KC I hope to go mainstream.
BL Do you have any other talents such as playing an instrument?
KC A little key board and drums.
BL Is there anything else you would like our reader to know about you?
KC Yes, to download and support a positive cause. I want to enforce that I’m more than just a rapper. I’m trying to do everything and have an entertainment label within myself.
