This week Kev released his debut album “Crazy Weird Cool Love”

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Kev lived in the same building as legendary hip-hop emcee Sean Price. As a young boy, Kev was heavily influenced by a musical family. His older brother and sister were into hip-hop, and his father was into reggae. As he grew up, he began experimenting with a combination of those two genres, while also dropping in sounds from pop and R&B. By age 12, it was a common occurrence for him to be rapping on the basketball court outside of his building, and that’s where he caught the attention of Sean Price.

“I knew he was living in the building, but at the time I didn’t really know who he was,” Kev recalls. “I wasn’t too in tune with his music, but I would play basketball with him from time to time and I started to check out his music. I decided to rap for him one day, and he loved it. He gave me my name on the spot – Kev the Pope – and from that day forward we used to chill every day. As I got older he would introduce me to a lot of people in the industry and he really blessed me with some keys and some knowledge of the game.”

Today, Kev is using that knowledge to create a successful career for himself. His sound and style are unique, and his lyrics are beginning to serve as anthems for many people around the country who come from the struggle and who face adversity. He writes songs about true stories and things that have happened in his own life or the lives of those around him. And his songs are diverse, with sounds and themes that will relate to many people of many demographics.

“I really think I can reach a lot of people because my music is about the struggle, but it’s also about motivation,” Kev said. “It’s not just for one group. It’s not just one sound I have. It’s versatile with a lot of different flows and sounds and concepts. With me it’s not just about catchy hooks, it’s about being lyrical and having a message and content that’s marketable and timeless. My music is in tune with what’s going on in the world today, but it also gives you that 90s feel that invites you to sit back and listen to a whole album without skipping anything. I feel like that’s what my music is – the kind of music that two generations from now you’ll still be listening to.”

 

 

This week  Kev released his debut album “Crazy Weird Cool Love” featuring 10 songs and a special appearance from Jav, & Janay Nicole.
