Since 2003 the streets has never been the same since Kenny Kane debut into main stream. His musical style is a hard as steel. It is the perfect cocktail of truth, swag and strong lyrist. He has come up from the underground hip hop scene, a legend. And now, he is experiencing mainstream recognition.
Raised in Timmonsville, South Carolina, Kenny Kane’s love of music came early. Like so, Kane was first introduced to music via the power of James Brown. Later, his musical tastes expanded to include Lenny Kravitz, with his cool rock start persona and DMX, for this rugged style of hard core rap. Music became his life’s passion; however the streets sidelined his dreams.
Spending most of his youth in and out of juvenile hall, and Kane later did a stint in prison. But his talent prevailed. It was while in the Lee County Correctional facility that he began battle. There music became his salvation. His skills grew, and while working on his lyrics and creating his one sound. A fusion of his experiences, he describes it as "my and every hood guy's life sound track.”
After being released from prison, Kane teamed with South Carolina music legend DJ B-Lord and Pure Pain Entertainment and released his first CD, “Dirty Roads," in 2003. The 18-track album featured no singles but was played in heavy rotation due to its street sales and internet popularity. His second CD, “Blood in the Water," was released in 2006. In between albums, Kane made a name for himself on the southern mix tape circuit. He has been featured on more than 20 mix tapes, including Canyon Banyon's "Shooting the Breeze" and DJ Chuck T's "Down South Slangin." This surpassed sales to over 20,000 units.
Performing on so many mix tapes helped Kane sharpen his skills as a professional rapper. After releasing his own series of mix tapes, including “Pure Kane” and “The 1,” Kane has begun to view his mix tapes as street albums where each song contains original concepts and lyrics.
The mix tape circuit also prepared Kane for his latest project, produced by Columbia-based producer Lil Brod, 24-track album, "Trap Therapy vol.1." Kenny’s favorite track off the album is "I do this". It expresses about Kane's love of hip-hop and why he feels compelled to rap.
