Best Of 2021

Best keep standing for something: Kenosobi


In 2020, no death rattled Tampa’s local hip-hop scene more than the late-September passing of percussionist, producer and rapper Kenan Jamal Hercules. The Jefferson High grab left behind his wife Tiffiny, 38, two sons she had from a previous relationship (Amari, 14, and Gianni, 12) and their three-year-old daughter Kelani. He also left behind a body of work that included his 'Stand For Something,' which continues to inspire his fans and friend to be righteous about the things that you believe in, even when the world is dark around you.
