KPW is an independent, American hip hop artist and producer. Originating from Northern Virginia and eventually re-locating to Minneapolis, Minnesota as a teenager, he began writing and recording songs at the age of 16. He uses a consistently content-driven musical approach, as he outputs a classic hip hop sound. At the same time, KPW also produces relatively experimental beats. As of 2020, he’s collaborated with other producers from several countries, including but not limited to the U.K., Japan, The Netherlands, India, France, Bulgaria, Switzerland and Tanzania, as well as in the United States. KPW has also headlined four shows at the legendary First Avenue concert venue in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
