One-half of the group The Blak Circle, Kut Supreme is also a solo artist and grew up in Yazoo County in Mississippi. He told Conversations that music has always been a part of his life, and now he is able to make a name for himself on his own terms.
"When I get in the booth or on stage I am telling the story of my life, or our life," says Kut. "I rap about the experiences I have seen, but I also like to give the people fun music they can ride to, dance to or just chill to."
As far back as 2005, Kut Supreme could be found performing in clubs across Kentucky. He's been featured on two compilation albums (THE BLAK CODES ENTERTAINMENT CHAPTER 1 and THE UNDERGROUND EVOLUTION PAGE 1) and has had the pleasure of performing with artists not only in Mississippi and Kentucky but in Alabama and Georgia as well.
In April 2008, Kut Supreme took a big step in his career: becoming the first artist signed to the Dayton Family South label, founded by Ira Dorsey (aka I.D. and Bootleg) and Mississippi's own Stanley Clark (President of For The People Production).
"I'm just ready to take this music game and my career to the next level," says Kut. "I've put in work over the years, and it's beginning to pay off for me big time. I'm ready for it all."
Kut Supreme will join fellow Mississippi artists in the history-making "Hiphop & Books" Youth Rally that will take place on Saturday, April 26, 2008 in Jackson, MS. The event will kick off the 25-state tour that will criss-cross the country promoting reading and the importance of staying in school among lovers of the hiphop community. (Details can be found at http://www.hiphopandbooks.com.)
"When I heard about the "Hiphop & Books" event, I knew I had to be a part of it," Kut explained. "I want people that enjoy my music and that of other hiphop artists that we are more than just entertainers. We are intelligent human beings as well. Education is important, and reading opens the mind. Anything dealing with helping others help themselves is a good thing."
