New school flava with a old school feel! Hip Hop Soul is what it is!


In an industry full of impostors and phonys pretending to be emcees, true talent is scarce. Hip-hop, once an outlet of passionate expression and creativity, is now riddled with rapidly manufactured cartoon characters and fruity loop produced crews. Many find the genre on decline—some may say hip hop has long been dead. Why? Because it lacks authenticity, it lacks taste, and most of all it lacks true talent.

In steps Robert Quintana, aka The Kid Rated R, born in San Francisco and raised by the melodies of soul, funk and salsa. Since childhood, the Kid displayed signs of his passion for music—reciting verses on a Fisher Price tape recorder. After high school, he embarks on a journey to New York where he pays his dues in the city that started it all. The Kid travels the boroughs as a student of Hip-hop and returns to California with a fresh outlook on his own musical endeavors.

The Kid Rated R offers music that is fundamentally grounded; a tribute to a musical genre that used to live in the streets—not the club or the suburbs. With his debut, Remember the Name, KRR establishes himself as a worthy contender among some of the industry’s most notable veterans. Every track on Remember the Name immediately showcases the Kid’s cuthroat lyrical style and a knack for selecting exceptional beats.

In spite of the hordes of makeshift emcees flooding the hip-hop scene, the Kid somehow finds his own unique niche within the industry. His music tip toes on the delicate balance between commercial viability and the approval by hip-hop purists. Without flaunting it, the Kid offers what Hip-hop lacks--true musical talent. And sometimes musical talent can’t be learned simply my memorization and practice. Sometimes you’re born with it.
