A South Florida native, Kent Jones is a triple threat in the Hip-Hop sense. He’s a producer, rapper, and singer; trained to play the drums, piano and Hammond organ. Kent was first introduced to the love of music through his local church, evolving his music tastes toward jazz shortly thereafter. Furthermore, Kent’s musical background and artist inspirations (Quincy Jones, Dr. Dre, and Timbaland) have helped shape the melodic, booming productions we hear today.
