Hailing from South Central, L.A., rapper Jensen Kirk premieres his new body of work entitled Kissed by the Sun and teaser track “Loading…” produced by ChaseNCashe.
Jensen gained major notice by in 2009 once he presented his song “Paper Chaser” featuring Detroit’s own, Big Sean, which was made it’s debut on KanyeUniverseCity.com; a past blog by Kanye West. It was not too soon that the two performed the hit track all over LA, gaining even more notoriety.
Soon after, tragedy struck when Kirk lost his best friend to violence, and his cousin was shot eight times, closely brushing with death. During a period of numbness for the budding artist, the following years were spent in the streets, pondering on the once current tragedies. But later, it begin to wear off in 2014. The isolation led to the self-titled Jensen Kirk LP, released in 2015. The LP garnered more than 50k streams on Soundcloud, which featured production by Tariq Beats, Super Miles, G Rocka, Medi and PJ Escobar.
Today, another year has followed with growth, being ‘Kissed by the Sun.’ It’s not only the title to Jensen’s debut album, but it is also a way of life.
Love who you are and never settle. – Jensen Kirk
