This past weekend, Kawan “KP” Prather took over Miami Beach for the fourth annual Revolt Music Conference as a special guest panelist, judge and DJ.

KP had the packed audience engaged from the moment the panel began. He, along with Brooklyn Johnny, Orlando Wharton and Ryan Press with Darrale Jones as the moderator, shared key insider advice that every aspiring artist should follow. KP shares, “When you look at the artists that are making the biggest impact today like Kendrick Lamar, SZA, 6LACK, Khalid and legends like Kanye and Jay Z, they all acknowledge that having a dope A&R is a key member to have on a winning team.”
Saturday KP switched gears from music Exec to DJ when he was selected as a special guest DJ for the Ciroc Hustle Pool Party at Eden Roc Hotel. KP warmed the crowd up for one of his long time friends and legendary artists he signed, Tip “T.I.” Harris, who took the stage next for a full Hustle Gang experience. “The RMC felt like a music business family reunion, where the statesmen & women share their stories and experiences with the young people, in hopes that it would help them navigate the journey a little bit easier and faster. I look forward to being apart of it next year,” KP stated.
