The world has a way of surprising us with creative minds and talented individuals. There is no doubt that previous generations had amazing music still around to this day, but it is that music that inspires this generation’s hidden talented artist to come out and let the world hear their voices.

We learned a lot about the 24 year old ‘K.Cero” is a normal person who goes to school full time and has a part time job. it doesn’t get any more normal than that. He stated that music is something he loves and he would make time for, no matter the occasion. He has aspirations of collaborating with artist such as Drake, Bryson Tiller, and Brian McKnight who happens to be one of his biggest musical inspirations.
K.Cero being an individual like he is, he is doing the best for his name including getting his music on multiple music streaming platforms such as Souncloud, Spotify, and Apple Music. He has a lot of dedication and will be spoken about in the music industry if he isn’t already in the near future. Making it into the music world is difficult but like photography you cannot fight raw talent and talent is something “K.Cero” has, not only Talent but humbleness. His music career is very promising, speaking with the artist he stated that he thinks his music is “Dope as hell” we believe it is that kind of attitude and amount of critical assessment he has towards his music that will make him stand out in the music industry. Ever since K.Cero started releasing music on streaming sites he has obtained a large amount of fans mainly because his music speaks to people’s emotions and feelings. K.Cero says “It’s a surreal feeing when he gets people from different city’s and different parts of the world tweeting at him saying one of his songs reflected exactly how they were feeling”.
