Born in 1983 in Bell Flower, California, Verb Kent knew at a very early age that rapping would be a part in his future. At the age 16, he began writing his first rhymes, linking up with other local Mc’s to form the rap crew Faze 1. In his native Palmdale, California, he became a regular in the local hip-hop scene but as his crew fell apart; at the age of 18, he enlisted in the United States Army. His goal was to somehow take his music over to Europe, since he had always admired the dedication and love they showed towards Hip-Hop. After taking some time off from recording, Verb Kent eventually left the military but decided to stay in Europe to focus on his craft. It was at this time that Verb Kent met fellow Muddy Trenchez members Young Prophet and Max Mostly. His working relationship with Max Mostly, who is also a member of the 83 Sound production team; based out of Kaiserslautern, Germany, led to his developing of a family-like relationship with 83 Sound and all of its members.
Now back living in California, Verb Kent continues his grind, representing that unique sound of 83 to the fullest. “I’m a product of 83, that’s my fam” says Verb Kent. With several mixtape appearances, a Muddy Trenchez album and a Solo project in the works, Verb Kent shows no sign of stopping his journey in creating powerful music for the whole world to vibe with.
