K. Michelle is raw, honest and refreshingly blunt. Her debut album, Pain Medicine, will be released on Hitz Committee Entertainment in early 2010.
Upon first listen, K. Michelle’s lyrical content may seem “too real for the radio,” but her personal experiences are reflective of countless single mothers whose survival instincts have allowed them to scratch and claw their way to success.
Currently, K. Michelle is touring the U.S. on 36-city trek, as the opening act for R. Kelly’s “Ladies Make Some Noise” Tour. With a bit of courage, audience members will take a healthy dose of her “pain medicine” and find solace in the lyrics that have been penned from her turbulent life.
As K. Michelle prepared to embark on her national tour, she managed to squeeze some time out of her busy schedule and settle down for an interview with Clayton Perry – reflecting on the inspiration behind Pain Medicine, the provocative buzz single, “Fakin’ It,” and the mentorship she received from R. Kelly and MeMpHiTz.
