Kendall Curry is a junior, mass media major, but going to class every day isn’t all that he does. Curry is an up incoming rapper better known by his initials, K.C.
“I didn’t want to use a stage name because that’s not who I am” Curry said.
Music has always been important to K.C.
“It’s the way I express myself,” he said. “I have always loved music. If I could sing, I would. I’m working on that too.”
K.C. began rapping at age 5.
“I remember when I was young, my family members used to record me rapping,” he said. “We still have VHS tapes to this day.”
K.C.’s style isn’t limited to just one genre. He believes that his music can cross all of them.
“I can rap about almost anything, from partying and having a good time, to even something with a positive message,” K.C. said.
“K.C.’s music is a mix between underground rappers Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa, especially in his song ‘Infatuation’,” Theodore Cotton, junior mass media major, said.
K.C.’s inspiration comes from many sources.
“T.I. inspires me because I have seen his growth as an artist and his struggle is real,” Curry said. “Drake talks directly to you in his songs and very few artists can do that”
He also looks up to Jay-Z because of his longevity in the rap game and Travis Porter for their success as an indie rap group.
K.C., currently unsigned, is content being an independent artist right now. He is currently working on an untitled mixtape, but a few of his songs can be found on limelinx.com under K.C.
K.C. has preformed about 25 shows since his high school days at Cedar Grove High in Ellenwood, Georgia. He has also performed in VSU’s Homecoming Talent Show as well as clubs in Atlanta.
K.C.’s newest song is “Infatuation” featuring Carlyn “Ceeno” Johnson and produced by Dallas Evans. Johnson is a junior business major and Evans is a junior business and marketing major here at VSU.
“I love the song Infatuation,” K.C. said. “It has about 1,000 plus downloads on the site, and the song itself is just really hot.”
“K.C. is a really motivated and humble individual and a good artist to work with,” Evans said.
K.C.’s main producer is VSU student Myles Chamberlin, also known as Louie Beats.
