This week, Hood Critic Magazine caught up with Maimi based rapper “Kenlow Kabana” for an exclusive Q&A. Kenlow Kabana began to focus on making music around 2017, releasing his first mixtape titled “Live Fast, D13 Rich” on SoundCloud in 2018. Since then the rapper has been actively collaborating with other independent artists, as well as doing shows between the Ft Lauderdale and Miami metro areas. Check out the interview to find out more about Kenlow Kabana.
HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Kenlow Kabana. It’s an arrangement of my actual birth name.
HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
Kenlow Kabana. I grew up playing various instruments, and engineering music. I knew I had an ear for music at a young age, and I’ve pursued it ever since.
HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Kenlow Kabana. My style comes from various artists and genres as well. I listen to everything. Metallica, Tupac, Carti, Uzi, Whitechapel, and everything in-between. I think the diversity is the reason for my un-natural cadence.
HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
Kenlow Kabana. I can’t talk much on my upcoming release, per management.
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Kenlow Kabana. One of the greatest challenges as an artist is getting people to actually sit down, and listen to your music. Everyone want’s to support artists that have already made it, but when you’re underground it’s like everyone wants to sleep on you. That, and the budget to make things happen. Video shoots, photoshoots, social media promotions. It’s all a balancing act, between that, and having money to live your actual life.
HCM. What impression would you like listeners to be left with after hearing your music?
Kenlow Kabana. I would like listeners to be left with the impression that I can be every new artist they’re looking for in one. I can be the guy that raps on sad compositions, catchy club songs, hard underground bangers, and even orchestrated measures. I’m not limited to a certain sub-genre like most artists, and I’d like to be recognized for that.
HCM. What are your plans for the near future?
Kenlow Kabana. My plans for the near future are to put out better quality content, and consistently push to better myself as an artist.
HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Kenlow Kabana. I wanna give a huge thanks to my hometown supporters. Especially my family, and my music family. 380NoScope, SoulCrisco, Belushi, and Yawshi have been by my side since the beginning.
