As any serious hip-hop fan or follower will attest, its all about the beats!
Beneath the glossy production tricks, behind the lyrics, at the heart of the hip-hop matter are the beats. And perhaps thats what separates Kenny Thomas from most of the other rapper/producers trying to break through. Hes good in both worlds.
Rapping and producing
If you find yourself in Mississippi, Georgia, or his home state of Alabama anytime soon, dont be surprised to find that Kenny Thomas is already a household name on the rap circuit. As a native of Tuscaloosa, Kenny lives somewhere near the halfway point between East Atlanta and New Orleans---two dominant forces in current hip-hop. The Rawness of the Big Easys Cash Money Millionaires is mixed with the inventive rhyming and musicianship of the Atlanta Dungeon Family. He has a way with lyrics that simultaneously cut to the bone, keeps your head knockin, and evokes the occasional chuckle. He displays witty punch lines and most of his songs are painfully honest and to-the-point. Whats most impressive about Kenny is that he produces almost every track that he is heard on, via his production company Dirdy Beatz. Having his own beat factory has enabled him to take time with his craft which is obvious when you hear his music.
Remember the name Kenny Thomas.The major labels are not going to be able to ignore a talent like this for too long.
