How Comedy Rapper Kenny Brooks Made His Way Up

The music industry can often produce some of the most remarkable, talented, and interesting people. This is because music is a form of art that flows from each person. They can create music however they want, and different genres of music appeal to different people. However, at the end of the day, it’s still music no matter how it’s heard, sung, or created, and it continues to unite people and bring them together.

Hip Hop and rap have continued to progress in the music industry, and some of the most incredible rappers out there are producing music that will go down as classics. Among such artists is rising icon and rapper Kenny Brooks

For many people, music is part of their life, and they imagine themselves singing or making music, but things were different for Kenny. The idea of a challenging life may seem like an understatement when it comes to Kenny and the kind of issues he endured to get where he is today. 

As a child, Kenny grew up in Detroit, and the idea of hustling and working hard to make your way was quickly embedded in his mind. This was because Kenny’s mother couldn’t afford to buy him many things, and he knew he had to start his own life. He got his first job when he was only 11 years old, and from there, his life had officially begun. 

Kenny worked as a door-to-door salesman selling newspapers. His life seemed destined to banality until he was kidnapped by Indians. It was the most traumatic experience of his life, and when the situation was eventually resolved, Kenny knew he wanted to write a song. And so he did. 

Kenny appeared in season 16 of Nick Cannon’s, Wild’ N Out. Moreover, Kenny also has an award named after him. Called the “Be Like Kenny ”, it is awarded to UFC fighters. Kenny became a rapper and songwriter with a little punchline in there. His combination of rapping with comedy has been a major reason why so many admire him and his work. 

When it comes to giving advice or words of wisdom, Kenny says that we should all believe in our dreams. He mentions his own life and how he fought against the odds to make his dream come true. Kenny says that if he had listened to the naysayers back then, he would not have achieved his dream. 

As for the future, Kenny says he wants to see himself on MTV or VH1. He also wants to be one of the biggest rappers in the world. As we speak, Kenny has been working on 2 different movies and sees this as his way of entering the movie industry. 

Despite all his notable achievements, Kenny still has much more he wants to do. He wants to take things further and bigger. As someone who has done a remarkable job as a comedy-rapper, Kenny will indeed attract people of all ages to start their own journey.
