Unrulyshewrote: This “Session’s Live Streaming Artist” Is Proving to Be Next Big Thing in Music World

Upcoming music article Music artist Harrison Forbes Morgan a.k.a. Unrulyshewrote is a Florida-based music artist and co-owner of the Independent Record Label, Speak Greek.

Back in the early 20th century, people questioned the monotonous pattern of music. The rebellious 20s which we refer to, 1920s made an argument that music should be mixed and matched, different combinations to be tried out, a mix of genres. Their argument provided the world with a term: Musical Experimentation, Avant-garde which simply means to explore all the ideas in music. Today most musicians take a route of Avant-garde music. Unrulyshewrote is one such Music Artist. He produces classic music with slick visuals, quite the way this Generation likes it. A retro-modern style of music that can be enjoyed while taking a long drive or a stroll in the park.

Music Career

Although still referred to as the next big thing in the music industry, he already has three albums to his name. He shared a feverish passion for music since childhood. Officially entering the world of music in 2013. He is the epitome of freeform experimentation. With melody at the core of his approach, he carves out timeless beats that bury their way into the subconscious while steering clear of predictable clichés. Soulful and a hotchpotch of different instruments that soothes every ear it reaches.

Unrulyshewrote credits his elder brother who also is co-owner of their brand “speak Greek”, for encouraging him to start rapping. He hasn’t stopped since. Beat melodies and vehement lyrics are a constant in all his music albums. He and his elder brother, Apollo are independently led.

Rhyme It

Officially known for his impeccable rapping skills, however, with almost four albums to his name, He has covered different genres, a mix of rap, hip hop, pop, and EDM.His first album, Hope was released in 2018 comprising 10 hopeful tracks. His second album was released in 2019, yet again a collection of 10 mind-blowing tracks. Unrulyshewrote released his third album, MorningStar in 2020 which truly lives up to its name brightening up the days of everyone who listens to it.

The Artist of Modern Era

Unrulyshewrote epitomizes the essence of the modern era. He is working on his 4th album, Anxiety under the production label of jagisdead.  As the name itself suggests, he is addressing the prevalent issue of mental health. The album is all about the ripple effect of emotions. He is making music that is driven by a desire to motivate, inspire, comfort, and spread love and joy to all those that hear it. His ability to hit specific music notes that resonate with his fans is why it is apt to label him the next big thing in the music industry. He is a preacher of mankind and a strong proponent of spreading awareness through music and song in this title.

While talking about his new album, Unrulyshewrote shared with media:  “I want to devote my song to mental health awareness.  Not everyone is perfect and we battle our Demons every day, but there still is hope.” “The world will know who Unrulyshewrote is one day, as everything will be unruly”, he further added.

[Single] K.G. – ‘Got It’

K.G. was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in October of 1986. He grew up as Kenneth Green and realized separation at an early age. His parents separated when he was 3. While living with his mother, he developed his love for music. His mother was a gifted singer with a talent in playing several instruments, favoring the drums. K.G followed in her footsteps and began learning to play at the age of 5. The love for music seemed to flow through his veins.

GENETICALLY CONNECTED

His grandfather, Curly Moore, was a famous singer with a career beginning in the 60s and had hits such as, Don’t Pity Me and Soul Train. It’s only fitting that with this much talent in his DNA that he would create a name for himself.

Raised as a singer, K.G found that he was interested in and developed a passion for another type of music. At the age of 14, he began freestyling rhymes into a tape recorder. He played the recordings for his family and friends and received positive feedback from his peers and began writing. His style was influenced by artists like Lil Wayne, Jadakiss, Snoop Dogg, several other members of the Cash Money label.

At 15, he began saving money for studio time. He was able to record his thoughts and fuse his lyrics with hard hitting base-line tracks. Putting his heart and soul into the album, upon hearing the final version he said, “hearing my voice on a CD was one of the best feelings in the world. I was so excited and couldn’t wait to let everyone hear what I had done.” Feeling optimistic, he released his first mixtape titled, “BakaTown S***”.

A LIFE CHANGING MOVE

A few months later, Hurricane Katrina submerged New Orleans. 20ft storm surges would leave most homes under 6-9 feet of water. K.G and his family relocated to Indiana, then San Antonio, Texas. Life became normal again. He began high school and developed a friendship with Zario “Z- man” Christian, based on similar interests in music. They spent many hours in the studio and by 2006, K.g has a second mixtape titled, “Top Notch Music”.

His music career was growing as his life in the streets grew too. He quit school and immersed himself in street-life. Money was good, until it wasn’t. In 2007, K.g was apprehended by the San Antonio Police for aggravated robbery. While incarcerated he learned that he was expecting his first child, a son. He was later released in 2008 with time served and freedom to be a father and a family man. In 2009 he had a second son. Differences between himself and the mother of his sons led to him and his sons relocating back to New Orleans. He balanced his life as a father and career as an artist.

NEW CONNECTIONS

In 2012, he met Finesse, CEO of Finesse Entertainment. He believed in his talent and invested in him. Finesse and K.G. travelled several times to Memphis, Tennessee for open mics. On one trip he met Sticky Fingaz and Lord Infamous of “Three 6 Mafia”. Meeting them and seeing the life they live made K.G. want to work harder and succeed with his music. He went on tour, traveling from state to state, during which he opened for Meek Millz. He finally felt as if he was succeeding.

Late in 2012 he finished his 3rd mixtape Reflection of A Killer. The mixtape wasn’t dropped on any major platforms and didn’t do as well as K.G. would’ve liked but he still kept pushing and created his label (Last Route Entertainment). He wanted to become an independent artist, and do the things that he felt previous labels hadn’t done for him.

K.G. began working with his long time friend, Aaron “Ace” Mercedel who introduced him to Corey “Mr. Serv-On” Smith, former rapper of No Limit Records. While working with Serv, he was offered the opportunity of a lifetime. To travel to Australia.

K.G. CROSSES THE POND

In 2014 K.G. welcomed his 3rd son into the world. He went to Australia to work on a documentary with Serv-On. It highlighted the violence in New Orleans and New Orleans Rappers. Some of the documentary was filmed in New Orleans, showing the day and life of young black men. The rest of the documentary was filmed in Australia to show the difference between the lifestyles of the young men.

He wanted to experience what their life was like because he showed them a look into his. After K.g returned he worked with producer, rapper/singer Aaron “Ace” Mercadel and became a part of Boss Entertainment. While rapping with Boss Entertainment, he opened for Juvenile and Hot Boy Turk.

PEAKS AND VALLEYS

In 2016, K.G. welcomed his 1st baby girl, received his Associates of Science Degree in Drafting and Design and was nominated for “Best New Song” and “Best Video” along side Mr. Serv-On for their team-up in the song Famous, at the NOLA Hip-Hop Awards. His life and career were taking off and heading to the top was the goal. His personal life took a turn when his good friend “Butta-B” was murdered. At his funeral, K.G was introduced to Corey “CO’Baby” Coleman, CEO of Phreedom Records, LLC,.

He was offered a contract as a artist in the group “Tha Team”. Since signing, K.g was working as a group member of “Tha Team” with G.O and Mastamynd. They dropped their first single, I’m On One which was a tribute to their brother and signed artist to Phreedom Records, Butta B. Tha Team dropped a song titled, “Wave”, which did really well, leading them to release “Benz”, “In my zone” and “100 grand”. About a year after signing the group decided to part ways and pursue solo careers, because they all had different visions in the type of music and style they wanted to present, all while remaining friends.

WHAT’S TO COME

K.G. continues to and release new songs. He’s networking, forming friendships and relationships with people that have the same vision for success. While working with his cousin, he was introduced to music video producer Hollywood Pompeii. During the video recording for their song, “In My Bag”. Hollywood and K.G. formed an acquaintance, and began working together.

K.G. hired the video producer to film a video for his song Run It Up, which was released on YouTube, gaining over 11,000 views. Realizing they shared the same passion for success, their acquaintance turned into a partnership/friendship. This led to him striking a deal with CEO of ParkerBoy Entertainment, PBE Pluto.

K.G signed with ParkerBoy Entertainment in March 2022, and released his first single on May 21st titled, “Got It”, which is doing really well with the public.

The marathon continues for K.G. as an artist and building an empire for his family. He is a role model. An outlet of knowledge for young men and aspiring rap artists. Showing them that you can achieve your dreams with hard work and dedication.
