Twi’interview featuring Kenny Dope
Some may not know about him, but that’s why you come to Le Rock Box, right? I’m sure you’ll be able to find a lot more info here , but just to inform you all, here’s a little bit for you:
- a House Music legend (by legend I mean 20 years in the game djin/producing
- World renown (I’m sure if you check his passport he’s got pages filled — front to back)
- One half of the legendary crew, Masters At Work (MAW — composed with Louie Vega)
Yesterday I happened to shoot Tweets Back and forth with Kenny to figure out what he’s been up to. It started with one of his new projects a mixtapeBefore Nostalgia:

Short and to the point. Once I get updated you will too. Be sure to follow him on Twitter.
