GEORGE KUSH, the Rap Artist from Maryland was raised by his single mother with his five siblings and began writing and recording music back in 2004, while attending Northwest High School in Germantown, Maryland. Kush is a versatile artist as his sound varies from one track to the next, but whether he is spitting rapid-fire bars or singing melodies on hooks, his lyrics and delivery have the ability to captivate and inspire listeners. Kush lists Damian Marley, Stephen Marley, Capleton, Chronixx, Protoje, Jesse Royal, Runkus, Hempress Sativa, Lauryn Hill, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Jay Electronica, and Chance The Rapper as Artists who Inspire him the most. The Maryland rapper attributes the overall message in his music to the things he learned from the former Emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie and the Rastafari people such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and many others.. The name Kush represents the region of Africa called Kush or Nubia, present day Ethiopia and Sudan, where scientists and historians say humankind has its origins. Kush loves Reggae music and says that is where his heart is, but that rap is what he knows best, and it shows. The 2018 George Kush EP "St. George" which he engineered himself, as he does all of his music, is a sonic masterpiece that expresses the wide range of emotions that the young men and women of today feel while battling unjust systems and overcoming their struggles throughout life. No matter the style of production, Kush delivers a message that is uplifting and empowering that any music fan can appreciate.
