In this edition of Staff Picks: A Bronx, NY emcee brings 17 new tracks to BitTorrent Bundle. K. Mekonen waited until the time was right to drop his latest mixtape Late Bloomers, after all the project has been a lifetime in the making. Brought up in a Jamaican immigrant household in the Bronx, Mekonen was forced to grow up at a very early age when street violence took the life of his father. Being raised by his single mother, Mekonen began crafting his first hip hop tales during his teenage years while splitting his time between two rap meccas, The Bronx and Atlanta, GA. Late Bloomers is Mekonen’s first story of success: a budding artist coming to grips with and overcoming the challenges of his youth, to find his own unique voice as an artist.
