"Let's get live with kid sensation!"

Seattle rap icon, Kid Sensation, has sold over 1.5 million records and is still entertaining the masses. His LIVE performances, concerts, books, movies, TedX Talks & all-around passionate personality take us on a hip-hop journey as does his latest album... Presently Past the Future 

Kid Sensation (Xola) ranges from spittin' dope rhymes on stages around the world, to speaking his authentic truth to audiences of thousands.  His music triggers nostalgia for GenXers, taking them straight back to music we miss; 808-kick-drums, Alpine stereos, Fosgate amps, 15 inch woofers bumpin' his debut single, “Back to Boom”.  On stage he captivates audiences with a combination of storytelling and rhyme in his keynote presentations. 

Go ahead - turn up the volume at the family BBQ, because all 9 albums are remastered and profanity-free. 

Kid Sensation was discovered at age 15 by PNW legend, Sir-Mix-A-Lot. They dropped hits like "Posse on Broadway,” "Rippin’" & "Baby Got Back" scoring a Grammy Award along the way. Iconic lyrics - "Me and Kid Sensation at home away from home in the black Benz limo with the cellular phone..." or "Let's get LIVE with Kid Sensation!" Kid's solo releases “Back to Boom,” "Seatown Ballers & many others add to the solo career 

Kid Sensation dropped solo albums and remained tight with Sir-Mix-A-Lot. He also formed a long-time friendship with Seattle Mariners G.O.A.T, Ken Griffey, Jr. in his rookie year after they met while getting their car stereos installed. Griffey even appears on his Power of Rhyme Album on "The Way I Swing.”  How did THAT happen? Well, it’s a funny story based off a bet they made with each other at a local Dennys. You'll have to read Kid's books; The Vapor & Kings, for the low-down. 

Kid Sensations' latest hit, “Westsyde” has summertime feels and nostalgic throwback nods, paying homage to many iconic Westcoast rappers, many of whom he has performed with and/or toured with. 

“Westsyde” lyrics: 

"This here strictly for the bandanna, Chuck Taylor, khaki wearing OGs, plaid shirt and Locs singing this is for my Homies, 64 dip low, Crip walk hip-hop, left side best side tell me why did it stop?!"  Turn up twist up homie get a fist up Westcoast back Kid Sensation bout to lift up" 

 The “Westsyde” lyrics are FIRE, the video features Sirt MixALot, Wanz and a few others we think you'll recognize.

Westsyde is a passionate push to revive the hip hop we miss and love #BringBack90sRap  

 When he isn't performing, Kid can be found with his beautiful wife Liberte, in his Mackie sponsored recording studio creating new material, or in the community giving back. “I have a heart to spread hope, love and create meaningful dialogue through various art forms. I want to empower and inspire our youth.” - Xola
