We had the good fortune of connecting with Kahuna Patterson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kahuna, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
The bigger the risk the more the reward sometimes u gotta take those big steps to see results! TAKE THEM YOLO

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My music is so unique because i make my listeners feel my emotions frfr. I struggled as a kid kicked out @17 homeless frfr I went through so much and the only thing way I can get it off my chest is rapping. I’ve put in so much work to get where I’m at from flying out to LA to do a promo with DJFLIPP to going to MOBILE, ALABAMA for shows and interviews. I’ve spent over 10,000 on music in this year alone. I’ve learned that you have to pay your way in this game or you won’t make it. NOBODY WILL HAND U NOTHING U GOTTA GO OUT AND TAKE IT!! I want the world to know that if a 17 ye old homeless kid with no family can make it so can you! I’ve got my own house cars pay all my bills and nobody can tell me a thing! Don’t ever give up on your dreams

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

Day 2: tour through Fairview let ya see the beautiful hood !! Have a bbq
Day 3: go to Palmer and shoot at the range
