Rapper Kenny Kane is building a notable name out of Memphis and some serious power players are taking note. The road has been arduous, but nonetheless, Kenny Kane has risen above his trials and tribulations.
"Sh*t I’ve been doing music for at least 15 years and sh*t I even went to jail for five. When I get out I just got back to it, that got to be about 17. I’ve just been pushing in since, you know what I’m saying? Independent solo, out of my own pocket, no help from nobody," Kenny Kane said.
"I ain't really trying to fit into the mix, I'm just on a mission really. I ain't really trying to fit into the mix. Because it’s like there's so much confusion just going out in the mix and I'd rather you know stay away from that shit, you know what I'm saying? 'Til all this shit gets squared away, I aint really just trying to get into the mix, you know what I'm saying? Some might f*ck with me that I f*ck with, so if we end up working we end up working. But it ain't like I’m just trying to get in the mix, I'm trying to stay in my own mix."
