In today’s music, you can’t tell Hip Hop from EDM and Pop Soul these days. Not taking away from these electronic pulse seekers, but some of us crave the deep 808, head-banging, lyrical mind bending journeys, emcees have been known to take their listeners on for decades.
This NEW MUSIC TUESDAY, I am happy to introduce you to SRE Media Group’s new clients:
Under Management | @WHOISPARKER:
Publicity/PR | @THAREALSK19:
Born in Las Vegas, SK 1-9 fell in love w/ the city lights, 24 hour hustle, and both the celebrity and high roller lifestyle. Later on in his childhood he moved to a small town in Louisiana called Newellton, where he was brought up listening to Melodic Blues Rhythms and the Dixie Sounds of New Orleans.
As a teen, SK 1-9 moved back to Las Vegas, and then California, and that’s where he found his passion for music. Listening to the heavy street anthems of NWA, Eazy E, and Tupac. SK 1-9 found that rap music was a way to speak out against social ills, and that it kept true to the pulse of the Black Community and their intense relationship with the police.
SK 1-9 used rap music to express himself. He was immediately signed to a production company, while struggling in the belly of the streets. The deal eventually fell through, and SK 1-9 found himself hustling on the streets to survive. Then he moved to Hawaii with his brother, who was in the military. In Hawaii, SK 1-9 worked harder on his music. Performing before large crowds on the island.
After spending a few years in Hawaii, SK 1-9 decided to take his talents to hip hop’s mecca New York City. Where he now resides.
In 2010, he released the “War Baby” mixtape and distributed it in the markets he lived in. It did extremely well with sales for an independent project of it’s kind. In 2012, SK1-9 dropped the street album “Blood On My Sleeves” and it’s still charting well on Reverbnation.com. And, now in 2014, SK 1-9 released the highly anticipated “KARDINAL RULE” available now on iTunes.
SK 1-9’s music is relative to his cultural experiences. Having the opportunity to live in different regions, that hold distinctive music genres, these experiences give him a broad stroke on rap music, by blending sounds from these markets, mixed with lyrical concept and meaning.
Just like the SK rifle, he spits lyrics with a rapid fire. Inspired by artists like Tupac, DMX,and Lil Boosie, SK 1-9’s aim is to bring back the rebel minded spirit in rap/hip hop music. Something that will Educate and Energize the Youth and Music Lovers Abroad!
