Businessman, ruthless live performer, wins the crowd in one track.

Rapper/producer, rhymes on 3 simultaneous mics, makes beats with live instruments and analog tubes like Swizz Beats, resulting in loud, gory sounds like Kenny Beats, blending an odd amalgam of today's beats like Denzel Curry or Travis Scott with experimental sounds of MF Doom, Earl Sweatshirt, Madlib and Run the Jewels with Missy Elliott and true oldschool influences like Public Enemy and Beastie Boys.

Former entrepreneur Businessman (aka Boss Man aka Kevin Gray, producer tag "Business Paper") originally from Amsterdam, moved to East Harlem to fully submerge in underground hip-hop culture with the touch of an original oudsider, creating something completely different with full respect for the greatness of the culture.

Achievements include a one-track-win 1st prize on the Culture Weekend in Brooklyn and 2nd prize on the Fly Me Out competition in Queens within the same week. At a showcase for Quality Control DJs got the jam-packed venue to sing along with a song they never heard before. Will appear in spring edition of Living Icon Magazine. Several shows in Acoustik Garden Lounge. Also appearances on the Ron Alexander TV show, the halftime show at Fashion Week Brooklyn, open mics all over BK, BX and Manhattan, and memorable shows in Nuyorican Poets Café, learning Businessman songs on the spot to jazz musicians, then performing them live, gaining him the instant moniker "conductor of the Amsterdam Philharmonic".

First single "Way Up" is out on all platforms.
