Classy Cru (born LaQuan Kennerly) is a local artist in Columbia, SC...but only for the time being. Born in Laurens County, raised in Greenville County, bred in the Richland area of the state's capital, Cru has observed much more than your average 19 year old could ask for. Like any other human being he has experienced some things not intended to be discussed but his charismatic, speculative, yet wise character allows him to channel his experiences thru music. Blessed with the gift of writing, Classy Cru writes his own lyrics, hooks, poetry, and fictional stories. His first big performance was his senior year in high school he performed at the homecoming pep rally. With such a great response from his peers putting his music on their iPods and playing him before athletic games for hype, he simply recognized his craft and chose not to stop there.
