In comparison to other mid major cities the Kansas City hip hop scene is still rather young and burgeoning. Amongst the list of talented performers who have risen from the land of the waving wheat, the Midwestern Mecca for all things jazz, has slowly developed a reputation for the caliber of Emcees it helped to develop. The struggle in past years amongst those already established Kansas City artists is in who should they pass the proverbial torch to from the up and coming generation. Les Paul, the 22 year old Kansas City native, has been patiently preparing his craft and sound for the last few years with the pretense of gradually climbing the ranks of his fellow peers and mentors. His latest release,L.I.F.E., is a collaborative effort with 16 year old French-born Producer Elias Abid, and is aimed to show both the progression and potential of both of their respective musical levels. Pushing the bar lyrically, creatively, and conceptually, Les Paul, is a far cry from that of the counter culture influenced minds of his generation through their mutual love for skateboarding. With a rebellious spirit that lends itself well to the energetic vibe of his music, L.I.F.E., and upcoming releases from the young wordsmith should have no problem in assisting in his rise to great things The future is indeed NOW.
