Exclusive Interview with Rapper Kako#66

My message to the entire world and to the youth across every nation on place would be for everyone to show more empathy

Corinthian Noble-Talton (known as Kako#66) was born and raised in the small city of College Park, GA on the outskirts of the world famous Atlanta Georgia. Kako#66 has a passion to create music that encourages empathy and sparks connection.

What first got you into music?

I started music as a youth around nine years old because my mother and father used to do music. They were both gospel rap artist and they traveled all over performing in different churches and events until they had children.

Who inspired you to make music?

Music has always been a part of my life it’s been my way to cope with life situations and my way to speak to everyone around the world simultaneously. I’m often inspired by the many trials that we all go through collectively and individually. There wasn’t a specific individual that made me want to make music if I have to give those credits to anyone I will probably have to say the Most High inspires me every moment I’m alive.

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

My music is a feeling. Each song is specifically crafted towards a certain emotion yet decorated with Otherworldly tones chiseled and shaped into these digital wave forms that we call music. Genres are just like ethnicities to me I feel like they only categorize a specific commonality across certain music, when in reality every single song is on a completely different wavelength and so they can’t be categorized into these genres.

What is your creative process like?

My creative process depends on everything, my mood what happens to be on my mind at the time and what type of environment I’m in at the time. I produce as well as Engineer but also right all of my own music creating music to me is a spiritual process as much as a physical and mental process. I create the beat just by hearing certain melodies automatically in my head and then immediately lacing them on the track. I tell stories with each song so sometimes it may take me 10 to 20 minutes to write down a story that happens to rhyme every bar or just freestyle until what was in my realm of thought manifests itself into the physical world, it just happens.

What do you feel is unique about you and your music?

In today’s world everyone is so lost that I feel like the only way to be excepted by the general population is to be exactly like everybody else I choose to be the difference. I walk alone on my path but deep down inside I know that I’m never alone because we’re all truly connected. Because of that connection that we all have I’m able to make music that everyone can enjoy. I have friends that are 11 years old who just started a new to attend school who receive more lessons from my music than they do from their teachers and 50 year old women who say they listened to songs like “I See Stars” and can really feel and relate to every single word.

What is one message you would give to your fans?

My message to the entire world and to the youth across every nation on place would be for everyone to show more empathy. This world isn’t about the things we see on television it’s not all about money, it’s about every living being on this planet. When we take the time to look inward and realize that everything is it about us we learn to show more empathy because what you do to others is what you would have done to yourself if we show more empathy on this planet no one whatever feel like they weren’t loved or feel like they didn’t have someone who has their back I’ve been to places in the physical world and in my mind that are darker than the shadows on the moon and all I needed was for someone to show me just a drop of love but I was always met with hatred that’s why I tatted it on my face, so my message to the world is to show empathy so no one has to go through what Ive been through.
