Hot! KENNY KINGPIN RELEASES “TRIC SUMTHIN” feat CLYDE CARSON & KYM CARTEL The Baka Boyz recruit artist for Upcoming EP Titled -TRAPPED OUT-

Los Angeles, CA. (April 22, 2013) – Rapper Kenny Kingpin aka Poppa LQ (formerly known as Laquan) is set to ignite fans of hip-hop with his scorching new single, “Tric Sumthin” featuring Kym Cartel and Universal/Republic recording artist Clyde Carson. Radio air personalities Eric & Nick V of the nationally syndicated Baka Boyz show will be featuring “Tric Sumthin” on their much-anticipated compilation EP, titled Trapped Out (Baka Noize/Universal Music Distribution), coming August 2013. The song is already in rotation around the country. The Trapped Out project is an integral component to the new venture the Baka Boyz entered with music industry executive Rick Aaron, and David Harned Sr. & David Harned Jr. of Orange County Productions. Together they are producing a series of concerts throughout the nation.

OC Productions recently celebrated the launch of the series with the “The Winter Takeover Turn Up!” held December 29, 2012, at The Robobank Theater in Bakersfield, California, hosted by local radio station Hot 94.1. The event featured many of today’s premiere Hip-Hop artists, including Clyde Carson, Young Money recording artist Tyga, Epic recording artist Cash Out, and a host of others.

Kenny Kingpin is a veteran in the rap game. The West Coast-bred artist—while under his original moniker Laquan—charted with the single “Now’s the B-Turn” (No. 48/Billboard Hot 100) from the early 90s soundtrack, Strictly Business. “Now’s the B-Turn” was also featured on Laquan’s critically acclaimed (yet modestly sold) debut album, Notes of a Native Sun. The album’s title, loosely borrowed from the 1955 James Baldwin book, featured an array of socially conscious and Afro-centric songs. Laquan reinvented his brand to take on a much harder edge. Throughout the years, as Kenny Kingpin aka Poppa LQ, he has made guest appearances on recordings with fellow rappers French Montana, Tech9ne, Scarface, and DJ Whoo Kid—culminating with the 2010 single and companion video, “Let the Streets Tell It,” and the 2012 mixtape, titled Rubberband Ready.

Kenny Kingpin recently dropped another single, “I’m Not What Rap Built,” the title cut from his forthcoming street album. “The Baka Boyz have done a lot for West Coast Hip-Hop, and the genre in general,” says Kenny. “As veterans they bring a lot to the game, and have been in syndication for years. I’m honored to contribute to this project.”

Nick V of the Baka Boyz adds, “Eric and I have been waiting for an opportunity to work with a hungry artist that has his own grind, Kenny represents that.”

Rick Aaron of OC Productions agrees: “Kenny is still creating great music and is at the top of his game. I am happy to be in a position to create synergies with his label, Rubberband Ready Records, and the Baka Boyz. These partnerships represent the best in Hip-Hop.”

Regarding his veteran status in the rap game, Kenny concludes, “Hip-Hop is still a young art-form and it’s still developing. I’m just happy to have an opportunity and platform where I can express my thoughts and share my observations.”
