Born Kenneth Bartels in Akron, Ohio, Burden had seen his father only a few times he can recall before his mother needing to rehabilitate herself from hard drug use took him and his sister Jessica to Tampa, Florida when he was around the age of 5. Where they would then begin a new life.
Burden is currently piecing together his upcoming mixtape “My Own Worst NME” with features from Lil Whyte, JellyRoll, Kevin Gates, and more. “This project demonstrates growth I feel like because the music is more intricate than ever. And i refuse to retreat.” The determination of the rapper is very apparent and by the looks and sounds of it Burden has what the world has been missing from hip-hop. “We’ve only scratched the surface,” says Burden.
Burden‘s distinctive voice has attracted attention to him, along with his unique performance and song lyrics that you will not hear anywhere else. So far Burden‘s song has hit 130,000 views on YouTube. In fact, we are proud to publish this song, because this artist is different from other artists, it is magic.
