Kang Lamont
Kang LaMont is a new hip hop artist who exploded on to the Kansas City rap scene in 2016. Kang was born and raised in Kansas City and has a background as a collegiate athlete (football) and college graduate (psychology major). Kang was always a hip-hop fan first and never aspired to make music until his room-mate inspired him to begin writing songs at the age of 22. However, Kang didn’t take music seriously until he narrowly dodged bullets outside of a Kansas City night club that instead, killed a peer standing inches away in 2015. Kang taught his self how to record, mix and master music along with Directing and Editing videos and produce beats on his own and released his first project “Afterthoughts” March 2016. Since releasing his first project a year ago he has since been featured on Hot 103 jamz, produced B.E.T. “One Shot” finalist Kxng Dose’s album “Notebook” and has performed alongside Young Dolph, Slick Rick, Rittz, DJ Luke Nasty and Jabee among others. Kang LaMont draws inspiration from his influences such as: T.I., Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Kanye West, and Andre 3000. Kang is known for composing vivid imagery of triumph, pain, relationships, parties and the inner-city struggle all painted over the canvas of his beloved but brutal Kansas City streets. Kang is known for his ability to narrate over a wide-range of musical instrumentation with an unmatched lyrical agility, selection of flows/styles and a powerful delivery that commands the listener’s attention. Kang was born in KCMO but was raised most of his life on 13th & Central avenue in Wyandotte county; which serves as the backdrop of Most of his narratives.
"I hope to refine music, study it, try to find some area that I can unlock. I don't quite know how to explain it but it's there. These can't be the only notes in the world, there's got to be other notes some place, in some dimension, between the cracks on the piano keys." -Marvin Gaye
