ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On December 4, 2010 Street Shop Records recording artist K. Wylin released "The Bodega" an inspiring, soul-searching and hard-hitting project that far eclipses any of his previous efforts. This album hits home with fresh perspective and an obvious spiritual and emotional awakening for the artist and his audience.

Music Connection Magazine hailed K. Wylin as a "rhymester [who] is more highly evolved than the average rapper" and reviewed his previous tracks as strong, with “a real gift for lyrics" and a style that is "stunning at times."

Despite good reviews and a budding career, K. Wylin took a break from the music scene to spend over a year serving as a missionary in Mexico. Through this life-changing experience, K. Wylin emerges with a new purpose, new message, and "The Bodega", a project which embraces his last formative year and the life he's found in Christ.

Every track on "The Bodega" is filled with easy-to-groove-to beats and no-nonsense messages. “Giving Children Hope”, the first single released from the album, asks what kind of legacy we are leaving for the next generation, and you can hear the artist's passion in his vocal range and stunning beats. Of course, hip-hop has always embraced celebration, so tracks like “Up on the Upbeat” “I’ma Always Have Love For Cali” and “The Getdown” give a souled-out excuse to party down. The album rounds out with relevant, emotionally packed messages from “Who We Listenin’ To’?” "My Family" and “Fill Me Up” - all songs that challenge convention, turn questions on end and give the listener an inspired joyride to "The Bodega" and back.

K. Wylin is going to be booking shows all over the Southland in the coming months, so check the website (www.kwylin.com) for upcoming tour dates or to get more information about this incredible young artist. You can also follow him on twitter at www.twitter.com/kwylin or for booking and press information, please contact his record label at streetshoprecords@gmail.com

Growing up, from his folks’ old records to the church, music was always a part of K. Wylin’s life. Born in Long Beach, CA but moving around during most of his childhood, writing rhymes became a way of expressing his emotions and thoughts. He began writing rhymes around the age of 13. Scribbling ideas and rhyme schemes on loose pieces of paper. In 1995 after receiving an album from a popular rap group at the time K. Wylin knew this was what he wanted to pursue.

In late 2002 K. Wylin dropped his self-produced, written, and recorded debut album, Streetlight Stories. The album garnished some attention. Reviews said, "This rhymester is more highly evolved than the average rapper" and, "is stunning at times." His hope was to offer a fresh perspective and a positive alternative to the majority of hip-hop available.

In early 2009, despite good reviews and a budding career, K. Wylin took a break from the music scene to spend over a year serving as a missionary in Mexico. Through this life-changing experience, K. Wylin emerges with a new purpose, new message, and “The Bodega”, a project, which embraces his last formative year and the life he’s found in Christ.

Although previous releases strived to offer positive hip-hop, this project takes the focus off the creation and puts it on the creator. “My time in Mexico really gave me the opportunity to grow in God’s word and to reflect not only on my life but also the music.” K. Wylin says. “It’s time to put the focus on where it should have been all the time. Jesus Christ.”

"The Bodega" is an inspiring, soul-searching and hard-hitting project that far eclipses any of his previous efforts. This album hits home with fresh perspective and an obvious spiritual and emotional awakening for the artist and his audience.

I've been listening to this album all week since it dropped. It keeps me coming back. The lyrics of Fill Me Up and Giving Children Hope are inspiring and the vocal stylings of If You Were Mine and My Time are slick! They get stuck in your head in but a good way. Can't wait to see a show.
