Aspiring Hip-Hop artist Kenny P is working hard to have a promising future in music. The Ardee, Ireland representative sent over his latest video, Forever & Always, which is the result of countless hours of time and commitment to penning a modest track. Over 300k people have tuned in to view it on YouTube, and the view count keeps growing and growing! Now let’s put all of that aside and let me give you my official $.02…
The Good: I gotta give credit where it’s due. Too many rappers are afraid to put their softer emotions there, but Kenny P boldly exposes innermost feelings with this love inspired Rap ballad. His sentiments flow freely through his simplistic style. The concept of the video is a reflection of the song’s heartfelt lyrics. So I give mad props to Kenny P for making a song that expresses what he truly feels inside.
The Bad: There are few people in the business that can straddle the line between singing and emceeing (see Lauryn Hill) but Kenny P is not one of them. His flow is nice in its own right, but he should have enlisted the help of a strong vocalist to complete this single.
Overall: This was a decent video to watch. The visuals were on point and the music was pretty decent. My advice to Kenny P is to stick to rapping; you seem to have a good grasp that. You should really let the vocalists handle the singing. And that is my official $.02. What’s yours?
