Young and Educated: Kevin


No Comments

This week we had Kevin from Young and Educated tell us a little bit about the group. They will be releasing their first mixtape as a group on February 26th, 2013. They were formed back in 2011 with just Kevin and J.T. They later added a few more members and have been building on the team since then. Their name originated because they are all young in their early twenties. They are also all in school and working towards bigger things. When it comes to the music they all jump off of each and have come to consider each other family. Kevin says, “They’re all like my brothers and Kenza is like my sister. They have two singers on the team one female and one male.

The Lost Artist: An artist spreading a message

TLA (The Lost Artist) was born and raised in Carol City. When he was growing up he did not want to be an artist because he didn’t think you could make a living off of it. After graduating High school he was still a little confused about what he wanted to do with art until his mom had a heart to heart that would change his life forever. She told him with tears streaming down her face, to follow his dreams so he wouldn’t wake up every morning miserable like her. After this he started to meet with other artist and came to the realization that he could take his family out of poverty and mostly take his mother out of her inner turmoil. During his continued education he met an artist by the name of Brandon Dudley.  Brandon then introduced TLA to his future mentor GG. His mentor has taught him more than he had learned in school. He taught him the ropes as well as the dos and don’ts of the industry.  Throughout his mentorship he picked up on GG’s artistic abilities and his work started to resemble GG’s.

T-Freeloves music and fashion and those are the two areas of the entertainment industry where he is focusing his talents. T-Free started rapping in middle school in 7th grade. His friends started to notice he had talent and made sure he knew. He then started to build on his newfound talent and started to notice that he loved it.  His stage name also came from his friends. It is a combination of his name. He wanted his stage name to encompass his name and fit his persona. His clothing line is a separate entity from his musical endeavors. T-Free always wanted to own a business but never knew in what field. One day he was sitting there thinking and he realized he had a big interest in fashion. He then started creating shirts and a name for the company. T-Free creates most of the designs himself and has been establishing his company. The company name is Macaw Bayz.

This is how the interview started with this week’s featured Artist Ph-Lobby.
What means the world to you?
Ph-Lobby responded this question by saying, “It would have to be what Cam’ron said, which is, god, family, richness of life, which is to enjoy life to the fullest.”
 Ph-Lobby is a 29-year old up and coming artist who currently resides in Pembroke Pines, FL, but who is originally from Philadelphia. He is the oldest of four and because of it he has amazing leadership skills. He describes himself as an artist in every sense of the word since he is a triple threat. He is a visual artist as well as a rapper whom also writes poetry. Ph-Lobby graduated with his Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from Alabama State University in Montgomery, Alabama. One thing that he discovered while in school there was how to hone his artist abilities in literature. He hopes to begin the journey of pursuing his Master’s in Media Design and Technology from Full Sail University starting by the end of this year. He has worked as a substitute teacher and as we know every experience helps us in life. Ph-Lobby says that as a substitute teacher he has learned how to master his stage presence, crowd control and of course vocal projection, as well as, given him added confidence, which are all things that every MC needs.
