The world of Hip-Hop, despite its diversity, has many many categories. Whether it is by region or style, mainstream or underground, avid listeners can't help but notice some type of division or categorizing throughout every artist's work. But in the state of Kentucky-- an area too far north to be south, too far south to be north, a tad bit east to be midwest, yet way to the left to be considered east-- those lines blur.
Kuntry Noiz, a Lexington trio combining a sound, substance, and style that's rooted in all directions, epitomize the unique yet familiar aura in Kentucky Hip-Hop with their debut entitled "City Peace, Kuntry Noiz". This the first combined offering of Big Kuntry (Gary Wright), Noiz Maka (Aaron Holmes, Jr.) and Thorobred Webb (Emanuel Webb). After uniting during summer's end of 2006, KN have created a distinct sound of their own, combining pounding production from Kuntry and Noiz (where the name originates) and relatable yet atypical words from either the main lyricist Webb or all three musicians.
