This Week on Earthsongs: Komplex Kai

Komplex Kai has been making hip-hop music for a decade. Born Kisar Jones-Fryberg, he is a 28-year-old member of the Tulalip Tribe from Tulalip, Washington. Kai is passionate about sharing the struggles he and people around him faced growing up on the Tulalip Indian reservation. He was inspired by poetry and old school hip-hop in his youth which led him to create his own original music, writing short poems and recording onto a boom box. Kai now has his own record label called KK Entertainment. His 2015 album “Unforgiven” showcases his unique style of hip-hop.
