Kris Prendergast has a story to tell. One-half of the New York city based- Afrikan Kartel, Prendergast is known to his following as Image I.

A certified medical professional dialysis technician, by day and a musical artist by night, Image I uses music as a message to promote overall wellness.

Additionally, he’s an advocate for renal heath and kidney disease prevention.

Afrikan Kartel and Image I’s style encapsulates what you love, what your momma loves, as well as what your grandparents love.

You heard me!

The combination of reggae, hip-Hop, jazz, gospel and r&b is both smooth and PC enough to be played at an after work mixer, family cookout and maybe, just maybe a church reception.

What a combination!

Afrikan Kartel’s Manager Kay Marie Pressley & Krishner “Image I” Prendergast of Afrikan Kartel & The National Action Network Dinner honoring notable humanitarian, singer and activist, Mr. Harry Bellafonte.

“Music reduces stress, eases anxiety, elevates your mood and helps people who are sick get back to wellness, “Image I told RESPECT.Mag by phone. “Music is an organic, spiritual medicine that I strongly believe in because unlike traditional medicine it can be used as alternative and a less invasive form of treatment to heal many human conditions.”

Interesting analysis.

The Afrikan Kartel group released the visual to their single,”Struggle Muzik.” “Struggle Muzik,” is the first track via their The Struggle Muzik EP. They are a group to be listened to. For more information on Image I and Afrikan Kartel, make sure to visit WWW.AFRIKANKARTEL.COM.
