Just caught Oakland's own KEV CHOICE yesterday for an amazing performance. If you are sleeping wake up and see that he is an artist, with hella talent and really repping for the Town in a beautiful way. How many emcees can get down on the keys. He is definitely and inspiration to me coming out of OYC (Oakland Youth Choir) He stands alone and holds his own among other alumn of the youth choir like Goapele, Jennifer Johns and Lotoya London. The song HOPEFULly (via 38thnotes) is just what Oakland needs to hear right now. Many people rushed to make tribute songs to Oscar Grant and the violence between people and cops this year in the Town, but I will say this is hands down the most intimate lyrical dedication to the incidents that have occured and his personal experience around them. I will continue to post about this multi talented artist known as KEV CHOICE and be sure to check out his Project the Power of Choice when it drops. He channels great artists of soul and hip hop like Lauren Hill and continues to stay true to him as he aims for the sky, he is truly an artist on the rise.
