    Dunson, now 29, seems to be able to trace his whole life through musical experiences. “I started playing drums when I was 8, I started playing keys at 12, bass at 13, and guitar at 16,” he says while relaxing with a drink during a break from recording at a Rockville studio.

    Kenton Dunson quit his job as an investment advisor during the height of the recession to do what?… wait for it… become a rapper! (No, seriously) After three years of the corporate world, the Maryland native got tired of putting his love for music on the back burner, or in his mind, after 5pm.

    Two years ago, you would have been able to find Kenton Dunson in his office, giving some financial advises to the most interested.

    But as a 25-year-old financial adviser at T. Rowe Price in Baltimore, the McDaniel College graduate felt unfulfilled. Most days, the multi-instrumentalist would leave the office to play music all night, either in studio sessions or as a fill-in member of a live act. At the encouragement of impressed players, he gave T. Rowe his two-week notice in 2010 and hasn't looked back. (Read More)

    A lot of rappers condition themselves like boxers -- spending countless hours, days, months and years preparing for greatness.
