Underground artists rarely get enough credit for their gifts. Not because of their lack of talent but simply because of lack of exposure. Here’s an artist that deserves a little more time in the spotlight.
I first heard of this hip-hop artist when in a private limo when I was in Honolulu, Hawaii. I requested the driver to play some hip-hop/rap music and he put this on.
Anyway, I’d like to shed some light on him right now. Kemba, better known as YC The Cynic is dropping beats, rhymes, and knowledge. Let’s wrap our heads around what he’s been stirring up in this world of ours.
The twenty-six-year-old recording artist is making moves and you should respect his grind. He has been named top five underground hip hop artist in the “Deli Magazine.” From his roots in the Bronx, he’s doing great things. Not only making music but using as an art form as well. From the beginning he has since released two mixtapes: “You’re Welcome” and “Fall FWD.” He is really beyond his years producing what he does. With sick lyricism, wordplay, personality, and beat selection, he is sure to keep his fans blown and entertained.
To make this individual even more interesting he is a founding member of RDACXB, the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective. In ’09, the hip hop duo, Rebel Diaz created an amazing hip hop community center. This place being an awesome safe haven for young people to perform, learn, and grow. The center space being fully equipped with a multimedia studio, computer lab, performance space, and of course an art gallery. With YC’s participation, they conduct rallies based around music but that holds a much deeper meaning than what is being portrayed. Bettering the community through art, music, and togetherness and uplifting those who need inspiration in a world such as ours.
YC The Cynic is an artist that should receive credit where credit is due. Let’s hope he continues on with his courageous acts and stupendous deeds. He’s definitely an inspiration to a generation that could use a little more of these people that aren’t afraid of individuality and creative wonders.
