KSG VIAFAITH: Code Red Old Head
Transparent and unapologetic in his style, rapper Jermaine Barnett alias KSG VIAFAITH is today's vivid interpretation of a legend in the present-day Hip-Hop fraternity.
Being one of the branches in Harlem's fiery music rap group "Kontraband," Ksg Viafaith has created a whole vibe of rap in the New York district, which is famous for its long black history.
About three decades ago (1988 to be specific), the prodigy stepped in his musical prowess, despite having grown up around Hip-Hop and rap artists as a young lad. Together with other independent rappers, including; his identical twin Jerome Denzel Barnett alias, DenziBlue, his brother JPD from North Carolina, L.E.S & Big Vince, both from Harlem, NY, their group Kontraband changed the drip of today's Hip-Hop style.
Back in 1988, rapper Ksg Viafaith along with DenziBlue, established their record label called "Sol/infinity music works." Under this label, the rappers recorded and released raw original music with transparent lyrics that speak about the realism of life.

He creates music that displays his actual feelings without being afraid of judgment by the world. In all life's situations, anger, grief, or happiness, the adept rapper finds solace in his music each time he needs to vent. His originality is acute and out of this world.
Born in Harlem, New York, Ksg Viafaith grew up listening to so many other Hip-Hop artists. Many of these, including; Jay Z, Slaughter house, Gang Starr, KrsOne, Big L, Lord Finesse, and many others, he admired for their lyrical skills and ability to stand up for Hip-Hop as a genre. Starting out as a solo rapper, Ksg Viafaith worked for some time with his close friend Cliff Marshall, who also doubled as the owner of "Dress in Black Records." The two created music that changed the sound of rap in New York with their unmatched talents.
