Kayne AKA The God Prophesied His Meteoric Rise

Published

Kayne AKA

It all started with a meeting in Chicago where Kayne met with his cousin and they put together a roadmap to seriously consider a career in the music industry. This idea culminated in the form of a music label bringing the world ‘s2 ENT.’  Still grinding and hustling for the next 5-years, Kayne recalls, “ It really wasn’t until 2009 that I got about 10,000 copies of my first mixtape(which was free), that it really felt like success was a real possibility.

Before taking the leap of faith, Kayne recalled much self-doubt and fear. Most of the doubt was created from others and he had no support from the people that were close to him. Kayne’s family immigrated to America, where they went on to establish careers in education as professors within universities. When Kayne mentioned pursuing a career in music, his parents were shocked, as they encouraged him to pursue a more traditional career path. 

In order to quiet his critics and secure the support of his family, Kayne devised a plot to establish his credibility, gain the attention of those who surround him, and make some money along the way. One of the ways he began to establish attention was through his creative wordplay as a hiphop artist.  As Kayne remembers, “ I try to make my songs as vivid as possible. Plus I’m trying to bring lyricism back to the forefront!” Another thing that separates him from the pack, is that his voice is versatile to sing, rap  and cross between both genres so seamlessly, while not downgrading his performance. Kayne joked during our interview, “ Anyone on a record with me knows  they have to put the pen to the pad.”

It is without any doubt in his mind that he aspires to be the best in the world, flat out, period. He described how he has visualized himself standing on stage in front of a 2 million audience, chanting, “Kayne, Kayne, Kayne.” He went on to say, “This is my prophecy, which will come to pass.” I have seen it and he knows that adoring fans will buy tickets knowing that they may get a combination of Rap, R&B, or whatever, but they will know it will be fire.” 

With over 40,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, Kaynes started to light up the charts, with “I AM SOUTH,” pushing past 100k of streams so far. We look forward to new and upcoming projects from this artist.

Gucci Gordy

Q. Who is Gucci Gordy? Gucci Gordy is the mmelinum version of Barry Gordy of Motwn.

Q. How’d you get into the music industry to begin with? I started in St Louis, and it started out as a hobby.

Q. Why would an artist get dropped from a major label? Does it all just come down to the bottom line? An artist would get dropped by not meeting expectations versus the risk of the investment. It does because labels lose a lot of money because they spend money frivolously and if an artist don’t recoup their money, they get dropped. Major Labels spend money differently and artist are left to recoup. Any artist would have to have an upward trajectory.

Q. I constantly hear incredibly impressive singing talents in places like the rice houses in St. Louis or even street corners in Detroit … why don’t some people get discovered while other less talented people do? Because they work harder. If it’s meant to happen, it will happen.

Q. Which is more important for musician’s success: talent or marketability? Both

Q. How important is seeing a band play live in deciding whether to sign them? Important because you get to see the full package from their stage presence, crowd interaction, and crowd likability.

Q. How do A&R’s search for new talent these days? Word of mouth and research on all social media platforms.

Q. How do you stay organized in such a vast industry? Repeating the same protocol, creating a curriculum and staying consistent by creating a regime and sticking to the process.

Q. What was the most recent signing that you were a part of? I signed Leeky G Bando, artist based out of New York, Chris Echols, and Destineeee Lynn.

Q. Where can the world follow you? @guccigordy
