As for King KeNoah, he started his career in California at a young age. Not knowing how to produce or engineer at the time, his talent as a rapper granted him access to some of the local studios in his neighborhood. He quickly became known for his delivery and stinging rap style and his ability to connect with those in and out of the streets. This popularity made him known as the go to guy when other artists needed to cross over into the pop scene. His mass appeal to all sectors of society grew his fan-base exponentially.


Building on his rapping skills in the studio, he began to pay careful attention to the mix and mastering engineers; learning about EQ, compression, serial/parallel and mid-side buss processing, along with other studio techniques the fans are not privilege to. He developed his engineering skills and began to mix and master all of his own music, along with those of other artists. This created a more personal experience for him with his music and he began to write songs that involved some of the most personal aspects of his life for all to hear, love, and hate.


This new approach rejuvenated his career and caused energy to surge throughout his fan-base. He quickly developed some hard core, die hard fans throughout California. He continued building upon his skill set: rapping evolved into songwriting, learning visual communication through photography & videography, and engineering become producing and sound designing. At this crucial point when he picked up the craft of production and he took on the responsibility of making the melody and studying music theory did he become a musician, and not just a rapper. The industry quickly took notice and the executives began talking about this rising star.


This unique personal experience that his fans have with him through his music is currently unavailable in the music scene where 10,20, even 30 people maybe involved with the creation of the song, not including the promotion team. King KeNoah is directly involved in every step of the musical process, directs every decision that’s made, and processes every connection with the fans. His music is an extension of him and that is his gift to the world.


“We are born to make a difference, in our lives and those of others. Hopefully my music will make people question their beliefs and attitudes and begin to look at how to fix the problems we collectively experience. The youth are our future, but we, are the creators of theirs.”
