From his younger days, Dakota "Kayo" Bracey could be found freestyling at the dinner table or making tackles on the football field. After an All-Area and All-County performance as a senior at Northeast Guilford High School, Kayo was awarded a full athletic scholarship to Morgan State University. After locking down receivers at his cornerback position for four seasons, Kayo moved back home to his native roots of Greensboro, NC. Kayo has teamed up with Tate Music Group to spread truth with kingdom music. He has consistently been ranked in the top 5 on ReverbNation’s Gospel regional chart for North Carolina. His mixtape “All Purple Everythang” was digitally downloaded approximately 152,000 times through a promotional push from Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes. Shortly after the release of this project, Kayo was named as North Carolina's New Artist of the Year at the Triad annual Underground Music Awards. He has also been featured on allhiphop.com over 17 times. Kayo Bracey & The Take Off Team’s music is supported by local independent radio station 102 Jamz, which services parts of the Carolina’s and Virginia. Kayo even directs, shoots and edits his own music videos.
Singles like “Holy Ghost Party”, and “Same You”, have taken off with virtual radio in various locations. Internet radio stations whose home portals are located in NC, ATL, SC, TX, IN, France, New Zealand and Australia have supported Kayo. Bracey's initial single “Rida Girl” was introduced to the world through CW network, Video Mix Channel, and MTV's Much Music (Canada). This single peeked #22 on the Rap Attack, (a national DJ association). Kayo Bracey has performed on the opening stages of Wale (MMG), Maino, T-Pain, Red Café, Freeway, Small World (DTP), and Big Daddy Kane alongside with other notable artists.
Kayo Bracey has released his 1st Non-Secular Album via distribution through Tate Music Group. Tate executives caught wind of Kayo through Youtube and were impressed with "Holy Ghost Party". The album is currently available on all major digital distribution outlets. Since the release of this album, Kayo has released several new freestyles and music videos in preparation for his next major album. His newest mixtape "All Purple Everything II" has been building quite a buzz in the area, as the project is hosted by Slip N Slide DJ, DJ Rio. The project can be found online on various blog sites.
Mr. Bracey has consistently been ranked as ReverbNation's #1 Gospel Artist in his area for the past year. Kayo uses past as a testimony. "Maybe my transformation will help other artists see that they can make positive music and still make a name for themselves." He is currently working on a new album entitled "It's Necessary".
