Back Stage Indie Reports speaks with Virginia Hip-Hop Artists KEVNPHE!
Who is KEVNPHE?: Virginia hip-hop duo provide a very conscious style approach to hip-hop, producing songs filled with real-life lyrics based on events that occurred in the lives of the two artists at the time. KEVNPHE’s message is to simply change lives one song at a time.
What is your story?: From witnessing domestic violence at an early age, to almost failing out of college, to dealing the death of an older brother at what was the highest point of a basketball career, to dealing with the death of an unborn child, to becoming an elementary school teachers.
