Raised inside a mobile house in Lynchburg, SC, O’Neal McKnight (created Rodney O’Neal McKnight) spent a lot of his childhood dance and revealing for his friends. When he was older enough, he preserved up his cash and relocated to NY, where — because of several contacts and his personal distinct gown — he could get a work like a high-profile superstar stylist. Not attempting to limit himself to the globe of fashion, nevertheless, McKnight soon started focusing on his personal music, and in mid-2007 his melody “Verify Your Layer,” which highlighted visitor rhymes from Greg Nice of Nice & Even (and was afterwards remixed by Mick Boogie) arrived. The single continuing to get steam, thanks partly to McKnight’s Michael Jackson- and Prince-inspired vocals and his very own dance moves, aswell as its inclusion on several television special deals. In the springtime of 2008 his debut full-length, Prom: 2088, strike shelves.
