“Keeping Grinding” is the Motto


Keep Grinding.

We have all heard this term before. It is a figure of speech that means: keep pressing on, keep moving, keep putting in work. This is more than a figure of speech for artist KG, this IS the motto.

KG is an artist born Trey Hammons-Scott out of Dayton, Ohio who is talented in many areas but has admitted that music is his first love. I first heard some of KG’s great artistry during a talent show where he did a couple of his poems. At the time I had no idea he was a poet, let alone a rapper.

The grind to KG is more than just working hard, it is truly a lifestyle. He not only is determined to keep grinding, he believes in grinding productively and perfectly. When asked when he plans on dropping a mixtape he said, “soon”. He told me he wants to make sure everything is perfect. The perfect sound, perfect beats, and the perfect mindset to produce great music; he refuses to rush the project.

How can you not respect a guy like that?

In the meantime, he released a new track on his Sound Cloud titled “Shit Faced” not to long ago that I want you all to check out. This is a fun song that also shows off KG’s flow. Check this out and his past videos on YouTube as we wait for his next project!

Armond x #ThisIsKairos x 5.21

The first time I heard any music from Armond was at a coffee house at school a few years ago. Since then I have been a fan of his music. Armond is not your typical rap artist. His music will speak to you on a different level about life, love, and Christ.

The first song I fell in love with by Armond was a song titled “Love Is”. The opening line: “somebody tell me what love is..” captured me during a very intense time of my life and led me to continue to follow Armond and his music.

This Is Kairos

Kairos is a moment in time that presents an opportunity for change. We are presented with Kairos moments every day but what we decide to do with that time is our choice. This is more than an album for Armond, it is a lifestyle that he wants us all to recognize and live by. He gets very personal on this album and speaks about Kairos moments that he has had and what he did during those moments in his life.

I thankfully was able to listen to a private-screening of this album before its tomorrow release and let me tell you…it is everything I thought it would be and more. Armond is a very dynamic artist and unlike anything I have ever heard before. If you have a love for poetry, rap, and the Gospel you will definitely appreciate this album.

Kairos will be released tomorrow so make sure you head over to ArmondWakeUp.com and cop yours ASAP!
