Bones: The new age of progressive rap [Article]

Tweet

Michigan, USAOriginally published Nov. 24, 2013 – Amongst the new age of musicians spawning rapidly with the tools of social media comes the biggest breath of fresh air.

Or should I say blunt smoke?

Branding his talented group of avant-garde musicians as Team Sesh, Elmo Kennedy — stage name Bones — has been taking the underground scene by storm. He has made over 1000 songs and plans to release more than 200 this year.

Bones was born in Oakland, California but moved to Michigan at the young age of seven, where he considered music a main pillar of his everyday life.

Leaving his parents’ house and dropping out of school at the age of 16, he moved in with his older brother Elliot O’Connor and pursued music.

Bones first leaned to his creative side of videography, filming and editing spectacular visuals with unheard-of VHS camcorders from the 90’s era, along with other tools to create recent nostalgic vivid visuals for such artists as Raider Klan’s SpaceGhostPurrp, Odd Future and X.Wulf.

He applies this talent to his already cultivating musical movement.

The magnitude of innovation Bones causes with his addictive laid-back style always keeps the audience on their toes.

The young artist’s constant progressive style ranging from 90’s old school bangers to more recent hard-core screams on his recent fan-favorite album “Cracker” is just an example of what he is capable of; take a reminiscence of Lil Wayne’s old career, blend it with Kurt Cobain’s insane mentality, Three Six Mafia’s Memphis ways, the progressive approach of The Beatles, twist it all in a backwoods blunt, exhale and you get Bones.

With accomplishments such as a successful American tour, an exponentially growing fan base worldwide and the poster boy of an extremely unique cult of hardworking individuals there is no doubt in mind that Team Sesh and Bones will make a monumental splash in 2014.

For the past year and a half she has been working with young aspiring artists who are looking for a way to showcase their skills and have their voice heard. With juggling weekly meetings, managing a website, and planning events for hundreds of people Natasha takes refuge in urban music. Researching and knowing the latest headlines, and newest tracks in the hip-hop world is something that she loves. But more importantly for her hip-hop is a lot more than just a genre of music, it is a culture and it has shaped who she is today. Finding a way to combine her passion for music, the knowledge she has gained from working with young people and the issues she has seen in the community is a goal Natasha would like to achieve in the near future. Recently, Natasha has taken on PR work for rappers and DJs.
