Featured artist: KGNICE – Musical Self-Reflection.
As part of our ongoing “Raps New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist KGNICE from Bronx to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, KGNICE! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
KGNICE: I fell in love with Hip Hop and everything it stands for at an early age. It had to be Nas verse at the Main Source, his delivery, attitude and confidence caught me instantly. Just the wisdom and style that these rappers had was new to me but felt like home. Living in a society where you have to be something that you’re not can formulate mental issues. In the Hip Hop culture you can express yourself without any type of judgement. That’s when I wanted to aspire to be an artist.
The best advice given to me, multiple times actually was ” To be myself.”
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Yes I’d performed at various venues.
