Biography

Skript, born Kenny Jean Raymond on March 10 in Brooklyn, New York underwent some tough times after his father left his mother before the young rapper was even a teen. From Brooklyn he moved to Brockton, Mass. just south of Boston, Mass where his passion for music escalated. Without a man in the house, he became a self-supportive youth, turning to the streets. Although never arrested, he managed to hustle discreetly in order to help take care of his family, fortunate enough not to get caught in the illegal game. Every chance he had he would write his experiences into rhyme form in a little black notepad he carried with him everywhere.
In his early teens, he started rapping with other local artists and his flow mastered into something unprecedented. His family and friends constantly reminded him that he needed to act on his talent. He finally realized that it was time to take it to the next level. With help from his high school peers, Jacques (BodySnatcha) Prosper and Daniel (D. Joseph) Joseph, he finally got on the ball with making his dream a reality. He began writing his first album in late 2003 and recording in 2004. But as production progressed his finances took a slip, so he worked random jobs that barely paid studio time making it harder for him to be consistent in the game. He took time off and he got back into the hustle game. In late 2006 he regained momentum and went full blast where he produced and co-produced every track on his anticipated album. He finished the remainder of the 10 songs needed to make his album complete in a mere 4 months.

Skript's music is music in its own scheme. With his debut album Life Unskripted: Volume 1 due for release in spring 2007, you get everything all in one. “You get a taste of everything, from every genre. It’s not just one break out song that you get. You get a complete package,” says Skript. With head banger anthems like “Raise em’ Up” and “Do Da Damn Thing” you get that feel good, get on the floor vibe. With more conscious numbers like, “Strugglin to Survive” and “Life We Live”, he gives you the feel of life through his eyes as he ventured into the world of poverty and discrimination. Then he brings it back to the old school with “1989”, which pays homage to legends like Run DMC, Fat Boys and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious 5, with the old school beat boxing beats that you can’t help but pull out the white Kangol.

With influences from hip hop greats, Tupac, KRS One, LL Cool J, Rakim, Common, Jay Z, Biggie, and Nas, Skript’s music demonstrates the essence of various hip hop genres. “I want people to be able to go through my album and appreciate every song and not pick one song and stick with that one.” No doubt Skript will gain the respect of old and new school and place his official stamp in hip hop
