Chicago, IL, June 27, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The music industry of today seems more unequal then it ever has. Often complaints are made about the generic sounding, artistically assimilatory, contemporary music coming out of the radio, television, and internet. Why isn't there more unique, progressive, creative works being placed before the audience's eyes and ears?
It seems that the big record labels, with all the money, are doing what comes natural, procuring radio stations with their grand wealth. This pushes even the hardest working artists, producers, and companies out of career advancing opportunities by nearly completely restricting independent musical entrepreneurs from audio and visual exposure.
Triplett Records is branching out from rather humble means but they consistently release new music with new ideas. The company's CEO and leading artist, Leon Triplett, has been making music ever since his days fighting in Vietnam. Another one of their distinctive artists, rapper K.O.K, is a fluent storyteller of many subjects and themes. He, also, has a remarkable life story.
K.O.K is a passionate writer of issue conscious subjects. He is sensitive to the plight of others and writes at a level of empathy and an intellectual's understanding of current issues. Some of this comes from his physical fragility, due to matters out of his control. Ever since his infancy he has had issues with his kidneys. This has culminated to him being on the organ downer waiting list for years and now goes to dialysis treatment three times a week. That said, K.O.K works hard and with great strength, which can be easily heard in his music and seen in his video It Is What It Is (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YN-17dJS50U).
Triplett Records has three new songs that will grab your attention right away. First, Motown is a heartfelt, nostalgic love letter to the beloved city Detroit and it's famous record company that share it's nickname, Motown. Second, It Is What It Is, from K.O.K, tells the story of the thoughts and emotions of those who struggle for survival, sanity and respect for so many years in the black community. ChIraq is another song from the mind of K.O.K that features his herald like rapping style, on the subject of Chicago's gun violence.
