For All Points-Of-The-View.

"Kente" was born November 16th in Albuquerque, NM,and shortly moved to West Memphis, AR . He started writing music at the age of 9. He was the youngest of three kids raised by a single mother, who struggled just to keep food on the table.


At the age of 10 he started to do local talent shows. Pretending to be Kris Cross to A.B.C (Another Bad Creation). He also preformed in local plays (The Jungle Book & Tom Sawyer). By early 1993 his older brother and sister were off to college, leaving him to be the man of the house at the age of 13. He played football in junior high, and one year of travel basketball during senior year in high school. Kente was more into singing and rapping but found himself running the streets heavy with friends, who really didn't have male figures themselves. In 2000 he sang with his high school choir at the White House, for the Delta Conference and later that year had the chance to sing in New York City at Carnegie Hall. After high school Kente set his goals on college, and moved to Minnesota in late 2001.


He attended Brown College in Mendota Heights, MN for Radio Broadcasting. Since 2010 he has owned Independent record label Rasma Recordings LLC where he showcases artists and direct and edits videos. Performed at festivals and opened up for several major acts. Kente has released over seven mix tapes and albums combined under the label. Several solo mix tapes through the label including two collaboration albums.


With the current confusing climate of the United States social system and beliefs. Many are looking for answers and recording artists like Memphis own Kente is awakening people to the truth with visual protest aid like his newly released music video, “Black in America”.


Off his new project of the same title, the video tells a wide screen epic. A southern display of growing up black in America. Black in America delivers on its promise as one of the most eminently listenable albums. Kente shows an effortless charm that will go a long way in setting him apart from todays techniques of contemporary Hip-Hop.
