Native Texan rapper Kane Colquitt is on the brink of the release of his newest EP, “Going Pro,” which is scheduled for distribution in June. The extended play album features six fresh new tracks, “Addidas,” “I-45 (Featuring De Wayne Chandler),” “Lost In Da City 2,” “Faded,” “Free Spirit,” and “Twerk Music.” “Going Pro” is an exclusive Hip Hop / R&B release distributed by MondoTunes and showcases Colquitt's adroit lyrical wordplay in the classic styles of such artists as Tupac, Biggie, Marvin Gaye, Grand Master Flash, and Eric B. Rakim.

Colquitt's style is a cleaned-up modern sound utilizing a heavy understanding of engineering principals. Many of the classic background tones are present, all electronic, with only the occasional guest vocalist for accompaniment. Colquitt's “Going Pro” manages to keep the volume up without losing harmonic integrity, and without sounding overproduced. Though his themes range from very personal to absolutely commonplace (“Addidas” is a literal celebration of athletic footwear) Kane Colquitt takes his thematics very seriously and pulls no punches whether he is rapping about his spirituality or his shoes. He has stayed his hand from the use of autotune and other such popular vocal modulation, except in the case of “Free Spirit,” in which he experiments with his voice by exploring how he might sound as a baritone.

Kane Colquitt is originally from Dallas, Texas. He started his rap career at the age of only twelve. His motivation was seemingly inborn, inherent, and did not come from an outside source. Of his motivations Kane Colquitt says, “Once I got going, music had become a part of me.” He recalls early practice sessions at night, in his bed early to rest up for school the following day: “I would stay up rapping until I fell asleep.”

His first real song was an unstructured freestyle rap of twenty-one bars that he produced with some of his childhood friends. It was during this period that he developed a repertoire that includes such singles as “Lost In the City,” “Lost In the City - Part Two,” and “Coming Down Swangin'.” He debuted his latest single, “Addidas,” in Austin during the SXSW conference at a concurrent rap showcase.

He is a currently enrolled student at Texas A and M University. He belongs to the fraternity of Alphas and is deeply involved with the A. group on campus, Education Mafia.
