The singer and songwriter of hip hop known as K4hnween has released his latest official single, “Little Red Is Riding Hood.” The track is the most prominent release from K4hnween to date. It has been proudly published on the Dogg Head Gang independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Classy, dark, bursting with bass and showcasing an unusually clean studio production, “Little Red Is Riding Hood” is one of the most uniquely excellent rap tracks to appear in 2015 so far.
Caribbean-born K4hnween (often stylized K4HNWEEN) cites as main artistic influences Lil’ Wayne, Meek Mill, Migos, 2 Chainz, Rich Homie Quan, and Bird Man. His own sound on “Little Red Is Riding Hood” is spacious and ambient, extremely stylish and well-performed, decorated with plenty of popular effects and written with poetic deliberation and lyrical care.
Asked to describe the intended meaning of his latest single, K4hnween writes, “As I see how the world goes, I see younger and younger teenage girls having sex, getting pregnant just because they can do it without a parental look on this spreading common habit. This is my vision of [the problem].”
K4hnween was born on the island of St. Lucia in the Lesser Antilles and grew up speaking both French and English. His professional name of ‘K4hnween’ is pronounced the same as “can win,” and the artist has stated that indeed it carries the same meaning.
K4hnween discovered music working as an electronic consultant for recording studios arranging audio components to achieve the best sound. Originally interested in the island styles of music such as dancehall, reggae and rock reggae, he was turned to hip hop through the music of Snoop Dogg and has been a rapper ever since. He intends to perform as soon as possible in foreign locales including France, England, and the United States.
“Little Red Is Riding Hood” by K4hnween becomes available online worldwide beginning 25 June 2015.
