When most people think of Kansas City and it’s Hip-Hop scene they rarely get past the tip of the iceberg, quickly taking note of Tech N9ne and then moving on. But rapper KC Young Boss is out to prove that there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to the talent in Kansas City.
After all his hard work over the years perfecting his craft, KC Young Boss has released his breakthrough effort called Kansas City which he hopes will bring fans into the world of Kansas City, which has been brutally documented as having one of the highest murder rates in America.
“The nightlife suffers from the violence and so that’s why it can be difficult for artists to blow up. The entertainment scene isn’t really there to shine the light on artists, unless you get up out of here, but I’m staying home,” KC Young Boss explained.
“In Kansas City it ain’t too many artists that get the national spotlight other than Tech N9ne and I wanted to put out something that’s a little different, Shout out to Strange Music, but they have their own lane and I wanted to put something out there that showed a different light than what people normally think about Kansas City.”
Continuing to push this Summmer, KC Young Boss will be hitting the road with performances opening up for Nelly and Juvenile. Other spot dates include a show at the Riot Room in KC and a special 4th of July performance.
“I just want people to know that this music is life to me man – I do this for real. Music saved my life after having lost my first born son and mother in a short period of time. Music got me through it all, I had my familiy, but music kept my sanity. I did a song called I Miss You for my son and I really cried while recording. Music was and is my therapy man. I don’t just put anything out, music saved my life man.”
