That raw intellectual hiphop sound provided by DMV's highly anticipated unsigned artist Kevin Sinatra, has not gone unnoticed. With features in 2dopeboyz, HipHopHundred, djbooth, and many more Kevin continues to drop classic bangers. While covering one of his early 2017 projects "Sleep Paralysis", Earmilk gave a highlight to his lyrics, stating that "he's making a poignant statement about young black males at the hands of the very institutions (such as police, i.e "angels") built to protect them but instead suffer due to being undervalued in western society."
CDA Management, a full-service artist management company representing a variety of talent in the areas of film/television, modeling, music, comedy, and dance brings yet another phenomenal hip hop lyricist stemming from the home of the black and yellow - LegenDerry a premier up and coming rapper born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Like fellow Pittsburgh MCs, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller, LegenDerry found his musical muse at a very young age. After discovering his musical talent and ambition, he placed his focus on writing, recording, and producing his own music. Through his undying ambition and versatile lyrics, it is evident that LegenDerry stands apart from the rest. For instance check his Pure Imagination project; the track titled Pure Imagination produced by Breaux provides a good example of the quality of sound, style, flow and maturity in LegenDerry's voice - plus its a sick track.
LegenDerry credits his creativity to his father, who was the vocalist for a punk-rock band in his youth. Coming from a musical family background, LegenDerry found his passion for his own style through a musical technology class in high school. There, he began making beats, recording vocals, and learning production. He started a rap group in 9th grade, which received backlash and caused controversy throughout his school. He was bullied for being a white rapper, and eventually relocated to a different high school for his senior year.
One of the most crucial moments in LegenDerry’s career, was his first studio session at MCM studios in Pittsburgh, PA. Everything came naturally - he laid down his first official tracks, and the rest is history. There, he discovered a unique style which is embedded in each of his verses to this day. LegenDerry possesses an extremely original and articulate flow, separated from the competition by his lyrical genius.
