103.7 Da Beat Artist Spotlight-Kane Koka

Standing out in a music industry filled with
flashy hype and false bravado makes for
a large challenge. Louis Funches Jr. aka,
Kane Koca, took on this challenge with a
focused heart and sharp mind. This
charismatic rapper encompasses a rare blend
that some hip-hop artists' lack. He carries the
soulful, charm of asouthern gentlemen and
the work ethic of a self-made, millionaire;
which allows him to deliver a blend of
hype lyrics and feel good music for all fans.
Kane calls two cities home, St. Louis, MO his
birth home and Blytheville, Arkansas, his
childhood home. In 1999, when Kane moved
back to St. Louis, he took a slightly
different journey than most hip-hop artists.
While working on his craft, he pursued his dream
and hustled daily by, maintaining an
everyday job like many people, listening to
all varieties of music, and playing the drums.
This pursuit also allowed him to build an
influential network within the music industry.

Kane Koca's entrepreneurial spirit,
hustle and musical ambition caught the
eye of rap sensation J-Kwon. In 2008,
he went by the name of Lou Kane and
started performing as J-Kwon's hype-
man, to warm up the crowd for shows.

While on the road his love for
performing grew and he also started
working with music producer, Martellas
Penny. Penny started mentoring Kane
and helped him to sharpen his music
industry knowledge, writing and
freestyling skills. Kane continued to
push himself by developing his brand,
fan base and music network. He knew
his journey took the right path when he
later met famed, producer Tar Boy of
the platinum selling production team
Track Boys, and the management team
of Face Up Entertainment LLC.

After Sean "BD" Caldwell and Mark
Johnson of Face Up Entertainment heard
Kane's song, they knew without a doubt
they had an incredible hit on their
hands. His song "Moneybag" hits all the
marks of a feel-good, hype track with a
catchy hook. Johnson and Caldwell
decided to immediately book a studio
session with music producer, Tar Boy. The
team pulled an all-nighter and recorded
another major hit called "The Gram"; they
plan to release this song as the second
single. Kane also collaborates with the
music production company Three Kings.
He stays grounded in his music
collaborations and family which also
motivates him to make great music.
Kane believes that with the music network
he started building, that they can create
music with positive energy for all fans.
