Many people feel that I’ve been overlooked for years.” states Kel Spencer. “I try to make whatever I do as Hot as possible and we measure heat in Celsius, Fahrenheit or Kelvin but Kelvin gets over looked just as Herbert Spencer does but not for too much longer. Kelvin Spencer... Kel Spencer.” Not only is Kel Spencer often called the best rapper you’ve never heard of he has ghostwritten for artists such as Nick Cannon, MC Lyte, Wyclef Jean, Teddy Riley and Will Smith co-writing songs like the AMERICAN MUSIC AWARD WINNING “Switch.” While currently building his brand and pushing his latest single, Hip Hop/House fusion Eye On You, Kel is also active in his community preparing to launch his Pens of Power after school literacy program while serving as a culture blogger for BET/Centric TV Online.
While occasionally writing commercial jingles and theme Songs, it’s safe to call this A Balancing Act. Kel Spencer (often called The Warrior Poet) set aside a promising future in football while attending Morgan State University declaring that, “GOD Blessed us all with many gifts and I just think I can help a greater cause by being present in mainstream rather than the field.” His gift has been displayed on dozens of mix-tapes, along with an unparalleled live stage presence with over 100 performances. Kel most recently released a novelty album called Salon Stories hosted by MC Lyte featuring Q-tip, Def Poets, Grand Master Flash, Jesse Boykins III, and more. His novice vocals have even been heard as early as The Wild Wild West Soundtrack.
Kel has also acquired press in/on E! Entertainment, SMACK DVD, XXL Magazine, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, BILLBOARD, VIBE, ESPN Magazine, HUSH, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED (On Campus Edition), THE SOURCE, BLACK BEAT, HIP HOP CONNECTION, NAH RIGHT, 2DOPE BOYZ, ALL HIP HOP and loads of blogs & e-magazines. Kel fulfilled a great deal of these accomplishments while on both an athletic regiment and taking care of business pursuits at Morgan State University’s Earl G. Graves School of Business. As a New York All City quarterback, at Brooklyn’s Canarsie High School, Lennie Bennett aka Kel Spencer, has always had the passion for leadership and winning. “I think that humans have an innate need to believe in something, It’s just in our nature to want better.
But black music as a whole doesn’t feed that need,” says Kel. “Partying, having fun and making money are all cool but we need to keep an eye on the big picture at the same time as being creative.” With an emerging international presence, Kel is steadily building his Salon Stories Brand as well as working on his debut project entitled KEL.EiDOSCOPE. “Salon Stories is Hip Hop’s answer to healthy male/female interaction while KEL.EiDOSCOPE will be music fused with short reality-episodes to give an eclectic perspective on My life, My loves and My grind. We’ve all seen the success stories and all of the failures.
By intertwining creativity, personality and just good Hip Hop music, I plan to make a Kel Spencer a Brand and not just a rap name.” KelSpencer.com www.facebook.com/KelSpencerFamily www.twitter.com/KelSpencer www.3HirdPowerMusicGroup@gmail.com Read more on Last.fm.
