With Northside Vegas on their shoulders, Kinfolk Kollab deliver their g-funk themed anthem, “Where You From”. The song also entices listeners to rep their city while indulging in a little liquor and smoke.
Consisting of K.A.T.O. and Jamel Deon, the newly formed duo Kinfolk Kollab aim to bring the funky West Coast sound that erupted heavily in the early nineties into modern times. The fellas showcased this motive and much more on their recently released, self-titled mixtape. It features “Where You From”, one of the project’s standout singles. So standout in fact that they reached out to filmographer Amine Tanzi to deliver an official video to back it. The video finds Kinfolk Kollab posted up with their people, giving viewers a glimpse into a day in the life on set. Bottles of Henny are flowing, blunts are blazing away and brutal bars are being served up for close to four minutes.
The instrumental was crafted by Moshuun, who is a producer favorite of the crew. He uses a classic piano sound with g-synths and xylophones encapsulating the funk movement. This of course brings out the best of both artists. K.A.T.O. kicks things off hard, speaking about the cold Vegas streets.
“so many niggas wanna see me gone / you playa haters is wishing I’m all alone or catch me on my own / never stop on the wrong side, know why? / on the west side, be dead bodies on road side”.
Jamel Deon handles hook duties, giving the song it’s potent party vibe in three steps, “it goes 1 for the Henny / 2 for the hoes / 3 for the blunt wrap with the hydro”. When he moves into verse mode, Deon gives the “Where Your From” theme a more national view as K.A.T.O. served a first person POV of North Vegas. The tail end of the single finds KK rhyming in a back and forth rap rhythm that showcases their strong musical chemistry. View the official video for “Where You From” up above.

Jamel Deon makes his climatic return to the music scene to debut “The Breather”, a brutal bar-for-bar verbal assault
Also known as The Pen Prodigy, the gifted emcee manhandles the daylights out of an eerie piano laced production, courtesy of frequent producer collaborator, Moshunn. The Las Vegas native’s sound on the single is what one can describe as “East meets West”. The keys are reminiscent of “Name Ya Poison”, a song from Mobb Deep’s 1999 album entitled “Murda Muzik”, featuring Cormega. Deon’s rhyme cadence and overall delivery are dead serious as he cuts thru the instrumental like a hot knife thru butter.
Straight out the gate, he aims to assassinate the paper with his deadly pen game with lines such as, “thirty-six hundred seconds then loop the time, ring the alarm early birds hop in the coup and grind, wake the worms, add pressure on the peasants, no breathers or suppresents” . Then for over three minutes straight, The Pen Prodigy swings away with his verbal sword with no mercy, slaying anything that stands in his way.
It has been awhile since we’ve heard from the young riser since his last solo effort, the “No Hooks” mixtape that found him jacking some of his most favored Hip Hop beats from the Likes of Jeezy, Jay-Z and Nas. With a new found hunger and mindset, the Grand Canyon University graduate has leveled up with “The Breather”. If this is any indication of what to expect from Jamel’s forthcoming releases, we’re in for something quite special. Rumor has it that he is working on a new project code named “Hustle With Me”. Stay tuned for updates pertaining to this and much more via Jamel Deon’s official website, www.jamelpenprodigy.com.
