“Countdown to One O (210)” has been in the making for over five years. Originally intended to be K.T. The O’s third music release, he instead decided to continue improving his craft – lyrically, conceptually, and his level of performance.
Now, The O and his team are fully confident that this music is worth the time and effort to really listen to, worth the time, effort, and expense it cost to record and produce, and worth the time, effort, and expense someone will give in return for having a copy of it themselves. This is real Hip-Hop music, with engaging hooks and beats, but more importantly engaging lyrics.
Fans have said K.T. reminds them of Chance The Rapper, Childish Gambino, Common, Charles Hamilton, but also artists like Eminem, Big L, Drake, and others.
You be the judge. K.T. The O is an independent entertainer with experience professionally working in stage musicals, hosting events, comedy, modeling, singer and songwriter showcases, and of course hip-hop shows. The songs are inspired by real life: his own and those close to him. These are songs to encourage, inspire, provide relief and an escape, and sometimes just to have fun.
