Freestyle | Dunson – Lord Knows Freestyle

Posted by on January 5, 2012

Kenton Dunson just announced that he is dropping his first name from his stagename to be just Dunson. Along with it, he dropped a sick freestyle over Drake’s “Lord Knows”. You can definitely tell that Dunson is hungry to break out in the scene by this track. In it, he spits about his road as an artist and his goals for the future. His first single off his upcoming project is due out very soon. The track is produced by the Grammy-nominated production team, Phatboi Entertainment, and from what I heard, it may be his biggest hit yet. Stay updated on future releases from Dunson and help him regain his fans by liking his new fan page on Facebook.

“As matters progress, I have made the creative decision to continue my artistic journey under the name Dunson. This simply means that I will be dropping Kenton from the artist name. While it doesn’t change very much, we believe it represents a more defined character while allowing for a greater overall reach and impact. At this stage, I find it important to take the necessary steps to touch as many people as possible with what I offer as an artist. This allows me to accomplish that with more precision and less confusion.” – Dunson

Kenton Dunson just released a new webisode detailing his latest show in Baltimore at The 8×10. I actually flew out to see it and was glad I did. e-dubble opened for KD and put on a great set. Kenton came on afterward with his full band and DJ Amen Ra and absolutely killed it. You can catch a glimpse of what went down in the video. If you have yet to do so, you can download his Creative Destruction 2 album here. Expect the first single off his upcoming project dropping in the very near future, count on it.

Hip-Hop | Lazee – Better Than The Best (Prod. Rusko)

Posted by on November 28, 2011

I only recently became aware of Swedish rapper Lazee and the tracks I have heard thus far have been impressive. From his catchy Ultra Records release “Hold On” to his single “Young N Restless” featuring Eric Turner, it is easy to see he is a rapper to watch. Having already established a heavy presence in Europe, he has recently been readying up his U.S. debut working with John Legend’s inhouse producers Phatboi Entertainment as well as many others.

The video above shows him in the studio with Phatboi Entertainment as well as FNT regular Kenton Dunson (who previews a new track of his as well). I believe the tracks previewed by Lazee in the video are off his most recent album Suppose To Happen that is out now and an album I definitely need to check out when I get the chance.

I did happen to track down the last song in the video titled “Better Than The Best”, which Lazee describes as “some European crazy shit”. It turns out that the track was produced by none other than Rusko himself and was off his First Class Five Stars – Season 2 mixtape released awhile back (and seemingly impossible to find). He didn’t lie, the track is insane and a must download. Be on the lookout for more music from Lazee in the near future.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Kenton Dunson – Beautiful Fight (Music Video)

Posted by on November 14, 2011

Kenton Dunson just brought to life his track “Beautiful Fight” with an amazing new video directed by AtomEvolve. The track, in my opinion, is one of the stand out tracks from his Creative Destruction 2 project (available for free here). This video is also much more focused on Kenton himself in contrast to his last video “Firestarter” that was much more story-centric. Check it out and make sure you grab a copy of Creative Destruction 2 if you have yet to do so.

Hip-Hop | The Foodchain – Traction ft. Kenton Dunson

Posted by on November 9, 2011

I first introduced The Foodchain to you with their smooth single “Dear Industry” and they are back with the second leak off their upcoming album Brunch, dropping this Friday Nov. 11th. The track titled “Traction” is a collaboration between The Foodchain and Kenton Dunson and contains a smooth beat that each emcee rips into. This track is just another taste of what to expect from their sophomore release that will surely be dope.

Hip-Hop | Kenton Dunson – Firestarter ft. Ryan Kellie (Music Video)

Posted by on September 22, 2011

Kenton Dunson just released his music video for “Firestarter”, one of my favorite songs off his Creative Destruction 2 album (available for free here) and I couldn’t imagine a better video for it. The video was directed by William J Bastian II who really did an incredible job with it. Better yet, in the next couple months there will be a short film titled Firestarter based on Kenton’s music. The music video contains scenes from the short film, so consider it a kind of preview of what’s to come!
