Sanya N’Kanta is a Jamaican-born musician currently based in Charlotte, NC who writes, performas, and produces songs with a wide range of musical influences and styles.

Take a ride to Brooklyn if you’re from out of town and trust me, somewhere in the conversation the town Brownsville will come up. Brownsville, Brooklyn has let loose some of the hardest hip-hop artists for years. Well check it, here are two more artists from the Ville. First up, Thunny Brown aka Thundah God aka Thundah Foot who hails from almost everywhere and Brownsville. His partner Stuck B is from Brownsville also. We all hear how tough it is to grow up Brownsville. You become a man early. Surviving might be the only option. That never stops anyone who lives there from doing what they have to do. Peep the interview hosted by Crazy DJ Bazarro as Thunny & Stuck talk about the pandemic, the rap game and politics. Enjoy!
