“It was love! Universal Records flew us to NYC because they wanted to sign us. They couldn’t understand why our music aint runnin the radio in Memphis.” That’s what the Memphis rap group Kinfolk Thugs had to say in a recent interview with MemphisRap.com. Though many may not have heard the name, Kinfolk Thugs, many should have by now! They have only been on Source Magazine’s “Best of the Best,” Eminem’s Sirrus radio show “Shade 45”, and on BET’s 106 and Park. If there was a list of true independent hustlers with real accomplishments in this Industry, then Kinfolks Thugs should be on that list along with a number of others.
But as with many others, they are not on that list, and why the hell not? Well they’re officially on that list now, because MemphisRap.com is putting them there. Congratulations, Kinfolk Thugs, you’re now officially on the list of ‘true independent hustlers with real accomplishments in the Industry’ so it be written, so it be done!
In the MemphisRap.com interview with Kinfolk Thugs’ GC Internal and Mr.Tyme Bomb, speak about their accomplishments and why they just don’t seem to get the same love from local DJ’s as they get elsewhere. As GC puts it, “They (Universal Records) flew us up there (NYC to Eminem show) on the simple fact that our music sounded great to them. They couldn’t understand why our music aint runnin the radio in Memphis.” The group also talks about their latest single “VVS” (off album We Don’t Play That Vol. 3), their upcoming album projects, and more.
