Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

MEET KEVIN DARBO HES ON THE RISE TO BE A SUPERSTAR

Kevin Darbo is a 22-year-old African-American singer and songwriter. Currently from Barnegat, NJ his Ghanaian roots and cultured upbringing gives him that reggae feel in a lot of his music. “Both of my parents are from Ghana, West Africa so growing up I ate the food, spoke the language and listened to the music and ultimately influenced my sound.”

Kevin started recording in a studio at the age of 13, with the help of his music teacher and mentor Mr. Wald. “Mr. Wald and my mom made a deal that if I got my grades up he would bring me to the studio to record my own song, so I hit the books and that next report card came in and ended up having straight A’s on it. When I first stepped foot in the studio at the age of 13 I knew that music is what I was on this Earth to do.” 

By the time he turned 18, he had signed his first record deal in hopes to have a career in making music, releasing a number of hit songs like “On Fleek” and “Kissing On Her Neck” to name a couple. Even having the opportunity to work with Grammy award winning producer Emanuel Seal and popular west coast producer & radio DJ Dennis Blaze, gaining radio spins for his singles in Southern California.

In 2019, the now 22-year-old NJ hitmaker continues to work and put out fresh sounding music like the release of his new smash single “Buss It” which was released in the beginning of the year and is currently available on all online streaming and retail outlets worldwide.
