Jah Orah on the mic.
What I like most about St. Louis is...
Jah Orah: the beautiful nostalgic clear skies and the huge parks on a sunny breezy day. It brings all of the beautiful people of the city out of their houses.
I make music because... it is natural to me. I come from a musical mother and father. I grew up listening to them and music of all kinds. I am a lover of the harmony of life and nature. Everything is an instrument of sound in my opinion -- even a tree makes sounds if you listen, and as a messenger of music, it's a very helpful tool to convey a message.
I've learned the most from... my parents and the many different circumstances and experiences in my life that have brought me this far. For example: the importance of family, income, community, health, faith, education, love, happiness and sometimes hate , anger and things like that as well, just to keep it real.
The best post-show food in St. Louis is.. any food that I cooked and prepared personally.
The most memorable show that I've ever played... would have to be the time I had the pleasure of performing at Red Rocks in Colorado and another show in Canada that I don't remember the name of. The crowds were huge and lively and sold out which is a great thing.
The most difficult lesson I've learned while making music is... if you don't write down your ideas or record them before sitting down to create, you will forget your ideas. That space will be filled in with a lyrical void of silence in your thinking process, and that kind of blockage is a very hard pill to swallow when time equals money in the studio. Then later on you hear your idea on the radio but it's not you spitting those bars though? It's very nerve-racking to say the least. #For the moment....

KD Assassin and Jah Orah.
What I like most about St. Louis is...
KD Assassin: the Cardinals.
I make music because... I love it and have something to say.
I've learned the most from... my grandfather.
The St. Louis music scene could use... more exposure.
The best post-show food in St. Louis is... Qdoba.
Five current artists worth listening to are... MC923, Kendrick Lamar, Pusha T, Kenny Knox and Nas.
The most memorable show that I've ever played... was MC923 and myself opening for Cappadonna in Lexington, KY on the Black Cloud Tour. I ended up doing like four of the Midwest dates of the tour.
The most difficult lesson I've learned from making music is... that 80-percent of it is hard work. The other twenty is all art from the notebooks to the booth to the stages.
