Coming from a place filled with broken dreams and shattered beer bottles, artist Kay B Brown looks to break stigmas and climb the ranks of the music game.
The Tennessee native has always had a passion for music dating back to the late 90’s where the intelligent, quiet and charismatic youngster was able to really understand the process of storytelling. In these early stages, he was heavily influenced by the likes of T.I, Boosie Badazz, and Young Jeezy, each of which had a unique tone that played an intricate part in the creation of Brown’s flow.
In early 2016, Brown caught a break when he released his captivating single “Understanding” the track its self-touches on multiple aspects of his daily life from self-accountability and social injustice, to the everyday struggles of his urban community.
He followed this In August of 2016 by releasing his long-awaited EP “Story 2 Tell” the project’s top singles “Understanding”, “Raised Different”, “Travel”, and “The Golds” showcased 4 very distinct sides of him allowing his supports to really get to know him on an intimate level
By March 2017, Brown became recognized for his lyrical accomplishments on a much larger scale winning the HipHopWeekly Battle for the Throne showcase during The South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
Though to keep momentum going brown looks to continue to provide a positive message in his music, most recently with his latest project
“The Who Run It Challenge”
When asked Brown mentions
“ the idea came about when my bro Mickeyreal put the idea in my head to rap off the 3-6 “ mafia instrumental, “Who run it” is an all-time Tennessee classic so it was only right to hop on the beat and pay homage to those legends who came before me. When you think of Tennessee music you’ll automatically think of Memphis and Nashville as the front-runners for Tennessee hip-hop. By me doing the challenge I wanted to highlight Chattanooga as well and showcase the talent we have in my hometown.”
The ambitious Kay B completed the challenge within 3 hours of starting. Though as he continued he realized that it could become a lot more, this fueled the creation of his mixtape.
The mixtape entitled “Goat Season” ranges from rapping off celebrity instrumentals to creating original songs off brand new beats
“ I’ll have to say Testimony is my favorite song from The Goat Season project simply because it talks about the past and current situations in my life.’
Equipped with street edge, and charisma Brown looks to become not only a leader in music but also in his community helping others achieve their goals as well as his.
