"Kenneth Cole is an up and coming Rap Artist who originally hales from the Watts neighborhood of South Central Los Angeles, California. He is not only causing social change as Kenneth Cole the Social Activist, but also as the Rapper K. SANKOFA. According to Kenneth his entry into the the world of rap, as an artist, started in the 7th grade when his best friend (an artist who goes by the stage name AR Caliber) challenged him to a rap session. It was after this that Kenneth would take to writing rhymes as a consistent form of personal expression. As his time in college progressed, K took on a calling to student activism with the purpose of enhancing the lived conditions for students of color on his campus. He believes that very often on campus we, as students of color, are just going through the motions of school but don't feel the necessary institutional support that it takes for us to thrive on predominantly white institutions in which we have left our homes, families, cultural backgrounds and places of social inclusion. After becoming the target of political attacks for his activism Kenneth was in search for the realms within his life that he could find solace: His Music. K. SANKOFA, which is based in an african proverb that means "Go back and get what you may have left behind", has done just that, going back to his roots for music to once again influence change in the world around him. For K. SANKOFA this means many things but most importantly in his life right now it means reaching back towards the music."
