Westcoast Legend Shoots On The State Of Hip Hop & More

One of the Westcoast most decorated artists by the name of Kokane recently sat down with the media platform Starforcenetwork. To discuss what he is looking for when it comes to signing new artists.

“Originality and something that makes them different from any other artist. We are working with an artist by the name of Aanisah C. Long. My wife and I have been developing her for years, and that is what it takes. If I see an artist that has potential at a time that I have the availability to work with them. That is what I am looking for from the next generation someone that has originality and the ability to be passionate about themselves because if they can do that, they will be the same thing with everything else. I am looking for those special breeds that are willing to do what it takes to make it.”

KoKane would also share his thought on where the state of hip-hop would be headed in the next two years.

“It will back to its roots, and it is like the earth replenishing itself. The culture must be truthful to its roots and no anticipated the type of impact the hip-hop culture would have on everything we do in society. Things happen for a reason, and the powers at be are filling the game with garbage to sway the perception, but hip-hop is going to be around forever.  It just a blessing that we have the technology and allows independent artists to get their music heard and seen. We must get back to a positive frequency and its head that way.” The interview with Starforce Network can be seen here.
