His voice has been depicted as a dark and gray day in April, developed with a laid back approach, and delivered with his passion for lyrical content and consciousness. Kyeyote pointed out that his music goes beyond those tired topics. He raps about his daughter and various other women in his life, like his late single mother (who died of lupus) and the indifference of the streets of his youth. “Let me know something that’s intriguing." “Let me get to know you as an artist, and let me get to know you. That’s what I do as an artist. I write about life.” The name, KYEYOTE, soon landed on marquees across the Chicago area. Today, local hip-hop heads recognize it too. He’s played shows almost everywhere from Dallas to Chicago and many clubs and bars in between. The Hip Hop establishment has been quick to embrace Kyeyote whose style combines the socio-consciousness spit by fellow Midwesterner Brother Ali and the deadpan delivery of Southern California trio Dilated Peoples. And his Hip Hop background adds street cred, of course. DJs in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Phoenix, and Dallas markets spin Kyeyote's music. Stars emerge from almost every unheard spot on the globe and another has been discovered from Chicago's South Suburb. The Suburban Celebrity is here!
