The road to stardom is never easy. Oftentimes, the path is paved with obstacles and difficult situations that one must overcome in order to get where they need to be. Brandon Jefferson, better known by his rap name Kinnu Cobain, is no stranger to struggle. Before he reached the pinnacle of his successful rap career, he was met with a tragic situation that most people can’t recover from.
Kinnu Cobain’s story begins at the age of eight years old. As a talented child, he had already been making music at such a young age. However, it was only until the age of 17 when he finally got the chance to record in a recording studio. From then on, the rising rap artist hasn’t looked back. Everything was smooth sailing, but tragedy suddenly struck when Kinnu was diagnosed with a brain tumor last October.
Instead of stepping on the brakes on his latest projects, Kinnu Cobain refused to stop. He has been on the rise these past few years, and he isn’t going to let some illness stop him from pursuing what he wants. “This year, I’m living my dream, owning a production company, launching my shoe line, promoting my music, getting the acknowledgment I deserve for my talents. All while battling this tumor, I refuse to let my illness stop me from pushing forward and doing big things that God has put me in the position to do,” explains Kinnu eloquently.
As the rising rap star continues to push forward with his dreams and projects, he hopes that more and more people will be motivated and inspired by his music and his actions outside of the music industry. Kinnu Cobain recently released a song entitled “Money, Power, Respect,” which was released on Grammy-nominated rap legend Da Brat’s mixtape entitled Hey Listen Up. The song was also featured on the front page of Topmixtapes.com, amassing critical acclaim.
Nowadays, Kinnu Cobain continues to cement his position within the music industry as he appears in a variety of events across the country. His latest gig sees him opening for Diamond of Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta on March 28, 2021, in Atlanta, Georgia, at The Ice Bar. Aside from his music career, Kinnu is also a celebrated actor, and he owns his own production company called MAKATTI Production.
Recently, Kinnu Cobain has been cooking up a brand-new release in the form of his own shoe line called MAKATTI COBAIN. The shoe itself is available now for pre-order, and audiences who love his music will definitely enjoy his custom-made merchandise. Back on the music side of things, he is set to release a brand-new single entitled “Brighter Days” on March 5, 2021, on his Soundcloud.
The song speaks about the very important topic of suicide, helping spread awareness on it and the struggles that people face when encountering dark thoughts. “My music comes straight from the heart to my pen, and I’m just trying to reach fans’ hearts when they listen to my music,” explains Kinnu. He hopes that his new song will help people in their times of need and spark some inspiration within them to keep going.
In the near future, Kinnu Cobain knows that he will become a household name not just in the music industry but in the film and fashion industry as well. He is a true lyricist who wears his heart on his sleeve, baring it all for the entire world to see. Kinnu is a genuine musician who is inspiring thousands upon thousands of his fans all over the world. He is a rare gem that has become hard to find in the music industry today.
