K.R rapped for west and was offered a recording session. However, he recorded one song called contact which was never released or handed to him.Six months later, K.R recorded a song with lumidee that led to a deal with Bang Out Records In 2004, K.R was released from his recording contract with Bang Out Records due to undisclosed reasons. That did not deter the driven emcee. From 2004 - 2006 K.R was featured on over 20 song with various signed artists and hosted over two mix cds across the country.
He was also featured in Rollingstone Magazine For Recording the whatever you like remix with T.I and Ludacris.In 2006, K.R formed his own company and signed to Gangsta Records Industry insiders are comparing K.R to the late Tupac and Notorious B.I.G., because of lyrical content, style and the fact that all three share the passion of creating music that stands out. K.R is bigger than just music. His company Gangsta Records is going to change the world and people are already lining up to get behind him. his three latest singles are in stores now called (shes like a star ft taio cruz) (paradise) and (rainfall) all from the streetsmartz album that dropped in late 2007 and was published for the second time in 2009.
the rapper states in quote 'Everyone wants to be a rapper now a days.the internet is flooded with millions of unsigned artists worldwide.myspace has thousands of musicians who wants to be the next star.so,what does it take to be a superstar. what separates me from all these people.well,it takes years of experience.it takes a person thats filled with ambition, and devotion to make it happen. it takes a person with knowledge to understand what the music industry wants. someone who can actually write a hit record,and make the whole world demand it.
everyone wants to pursuit the goal of a platinum record.everyone wants to be famous, and known through their music. but, it takes more than being a rapper to do it' when K.R started making music,no one in his neighborhood was doing it. majority of them were into the streets. eversince the industry changed,and artist started selling records,they wanted to be a rapper as well.so what separates K.R from all these people.
well,it takes alot of time to make an album,and distribute it to stores,it takes a person thats driven, to make it happen from the trunk of his car,to standin in front of record companies promoting by any means. it takes someone who can start his own record label if major labels are'nt willing to sign him. to make it in this industry. it takes power,and determination to do it.
the power of being an unsigned latin rap artist,whos determined to make something out of nothing. to create music freely under his own empire. to pursuade other artists into doing the same and being independent.thats what separate him from other artist. now that K.R acomplished part of his goals.
the next step is to be a mainstream artist. with global television media arrangements, and hopefully sign a major distribution deal. with rights to run his own label under the parent company. learning and understanding this will help you achieve what you want and seperate you from others.
