Still working on that hot first release.



Kenny Kash VIII (pronounced the 8th wonder of the world) was born and bred on    the infamous streets of Chicagos East Side.  Known for his lyrical versatility, he is touted by many as one of the most complete emcees Chicago has produced.  Kash has garnered the attention of some of the most well-established and respected rap artists in the game. 
Previously known as just Kenny Kash, he has been rockin' stages since 2002, performing at some of the most legendary venues in Chicago, such as the House of Blues, The Aragon Ballroom and the Congress Theater. He has opened in Chicago and many cities for legendary artists such as Nas, Scarface, Raekwon, TechN9ne and Mos Def, just to name a few. 
He was the first artist featured exclusively on a project endorsed by "LRG" clothing line (Street Radio Vol. 1 2002). After the untimely and sudden death of his mother in 2008, Kash took an extended hiatus from    music.  After some time had passed, the fire and passion started to return. Knowing his mother was his biggest fan and would not want him to stop pursuing his dream, He decided to roll his sleeves up and get back to work. The result is a relentless dedication and tireless work ethic that separates him from most of his contemporaries.

Kenny Kash VIII's debut mixtape, aptly titled The Standard, is a glimpse into the mind of this outspoken artist.  Featuring production by 8th of February, BoogzDaBeast (New God Flow, 2012 XXL Beat of the Year), Tree (@MCTREEG) & Tony Baines(@BainesGod)- his music incorporates a broad spectrum of themes--from vivid tales of street life and the pursuit of success, to hard-hitting commentary on social and political issues. He provides his audience with music that reveals an insightful, street-smart sensibility.  Armed with a razor-sharp wit and lyrical precision, every song is an unmistakable reflection of the experiences that shaped him-- never straying from the strict code hes come to live by. The Standard serves as a formal  introduction to his lyrical skill and sets the tone for what listeners can expect from the many projects he'll be releasing this year including the Standard II in early summer.
