ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the beautiful twin island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean comes Fphobyiamaatikx (pronounced "phobia-matic), also known as Rapsoman Khay (pronounced "Kay"). His music is a unique and exciting blend of Modern Rapso (Trinidad Rap), Jazz, Gospel, Rock and Soul fused with African and East Indian influence. Fphobyiamaatikx's lyrics are solid as he delivers strong positive messages, shares his  trials and real life experiences as well as challenges the listener. So, come dive into the "Hardso" (hardcore Modern Rapso) and "Represent" with Khay.

Born Kevin K. Herbert in Trinidad and Tobago in the year of the "Bassman From Hell", he grew up as a "Barataria boy" and  is one of Rapso music’s third generation revolutionaries as well as one the of modern Rapso (Trinidad Rap) pioneers who started his career commercially in 1993 as the writer and lead vocalist of the group Boyz ‘N The Road. Boyz ‘N The Road was one of the sixteen selected artistes, from among the thousands who auditioned from across the nation of Trinidad and Tobago, to be contracted to Robert Amar’s Kisskidee Records in 1993 and tour as part of what was known as the Kisskidee Karavan. The Kisskidee Karavan was the greatest revolution in music and talent in the Caribbean. 
 
Boyz ‘N The Road’s debut single “Jam To The Beat” (written by Kevin K. Herbert and produced by the late great Sheldon "$hel$hok" Benjamin) and quickly became a hit and was one the songs from the Kisskidee Jams compilation album that caught the attention of Billboard Magazine in one of its 1994 publications. Fphobyiamaatikx continued with Boyz ‘N The Road to work with Kisskidee Records as "Khay" and again they were featured on the “Soca Billboard” album with their vintage Rapso song penned by Kevin entitled, “Dey Badd”. The group continued to work on their music with producers Francis "2 Phat" Escagy and Sheldon "$hel$hok" Bengamin as well as  the legendary music engineer and mix guru Martin "Mice" Raymond.

When the Kisskidee Karavan came to an end in 1997, Khay continued writing songs and making music. Along with Marvin Harrison (a.k.a. Mention), Tinneil Greenidge (a.k.a. Sista T.) and a vibrant group of youths who were known as the Power Generation, he commenced a new initiative of Trinidad Gospel Rap music and made frequent appearances onstage nationwide performing live music ministry with the group as well as solo. Between 1998 and 2003 Khay and Power Generation were popularly known in local Gospel circle for delivering some of the most bold and controversial lyrical content in Trinidad and Tobago with songs like "All That I Got Is You", "Master's Plan", "Most High" and "Wartime". 

In 2019 Fphobyiamaatikx is back as musically unique and lyrically potent as ever with new songs like “Represent” featuring his son Asa,  “Do Yuh Ting”,  “Back In De Dance”, "Switch", and “Do De Devil”, which are included on his 12 song album. So get with the future of modern Rapso (Trinidad Rap) now and get your music downloads today.
