“Hip Hop is dead.” A statement often uttered from the mouths of many from the Hip Hop culture and in particular, rap music. In a new era of rap that has been dumbed down, lacking meaning, substance, originality and creativity among many other aspects; 21-year-old up and comer Kenny Guye proves this statement is far from true.
Staying true to the real essence of Hip Hop, the young MC delivers impressive rhyme schemes and unique flows. He also connects with the listener through his greatest strength; emotion. Emotion stemmed from years of struggling with great and unfortunate losses and growing up rough as a poor, lower-class citizen.
Kenny Guye’s debut mixtape, The Rhyme Book – Chapter 1, released April 30th, has just laid down the foundation of what’s about to be built. His upcoming project “The Rhyme Book – Chapter 2” will be released for free on May 30th and the young rapper is confident that this project exceeds anything he has ever done.
As we wait for the arrival of his new tape, watch his latest visuals ‘The Villains Back’ directed by Mike Hall.
