KB the Boo Bonic is a woman, a Texan, a writer, a college graduate and maybe the last person you would ever expect to be a rapper. She started rapping over 10 years ago amidst the mix of her friends on the turntables and blunts and beers.
She sharpened her chops freestyling and gained recognition as a viable opponent at house parties and local events. While in San Antonio she met producer Bad Boy Ben and set out to compile her first release, Scars Are Sexy. The femcee made sure to leave no doubt in listeners minds that she was Dirty South born and bred by enlisting the help of DJ Rapid Ric to mix the album.
It has that third coast sound but with no holds barred lyrics that touch on everything from relationships to the music scene to politics. Her perspective is far from your average female artist who laments over love lost or frets over the challenges of being a woman. She gives an unapologetic perspective, intended to make the listener think and hopefully get a good laugh every once in a while.
KB released her second studio album, Farrah Flossitt, in 2015. The sound is still clearly influenced by her southern rap roots as she pays homage to the Charlie's Angels star. The production, largely care of producer Dirt Rich, provides a grimy but fun back drop as KB flexes her lyrical prowess and solidifies her title as a boss chick.
In 2014, KB was honored and extremely excited to join the limited number of hopeful artists who are featured on and win the All Out Show's segment, Hate it or Love it, on Shade45 on Sirius XM. As hip hop fans from the world listened to and called to weigh in on her track, "Daddy Baby", she was largely greeted with support, respect, and love for her original sound and real presentation. She walked away with a win and a much appreciated affirmation that people understand her as an artist and are looking to hear authenticity and originality.
KB's sophmore project Farrah Flossitt, which features the winning track, was released in early 2015. It received acclaim from popular sites such as BRealTV, as well as local media, including the Austin Chronicle. She also performed at her first international gig in Mexico City during Festival Ajusco 2015 and was met with an overwhelmingly positive response.
She is currently working on features and collaborations with various artists in Austin as well as across the US. When not doing live shows, she is in the studio. Her next project is a free mixtape title, BatSh!T, as a nod to her current hometown, which is releasing early 2016. Following its release, she will be continuing work on an upcoming EP, slated for late 2016.
She does what she does for her love of hip hop culture, music, writing, and creating. She strongly feels hip hop fans, especially women in hip hop, deserve more than they are being given by the industry, and something needs to be done about it. She'll be your Huckleberry.
