When asked what motivates Kevo, he stated the following:
“My people and my community. When you see your people struggle and in pain for so long it makes you want to create a way out of that. We experience the same issues nearly over and over. It’s hard. A future where this continues doesn’t sit right with me. I want to make a change, real talk”, explains MTE Kevo. Kevo describes what it was like growing up in Florida as well.
“I grew up in NMB (Miami, FL). There's a lot going on here. A lot of the lingo and culture in Miami comes out of NMB. It’s like we’re in our own world that everybody taps in to. If you’re from Miami, then you know that NMB plays a large part in the Miami culture that many people love today”, states MTE Kevo.
In general, many artists out of Florida use their culture as a language to communicate with others through music. MTE Kevo is one of the many musicians out of the Sunshine State to keep on the watch.
