KaneGang is an American Hip-Hop group originating in Philadelphia, Pa. formed by Hollywood Kane (Randall Ball), Chucka Kane (De’shan Adams), and 3azy Kane(Kyohn Page). The group was founded by Bloomsburg student Hollywood Kane who after two years as strictly a solo artist decided to recruit his fellow Bloomsburg friends Chucka Kane and 3azy Kane to form what is now KaneGang. The actual name KaneGang was pitched to Hollywood Kane by his friend who thought it sounded cool as it was the height of the Wiz Khalifa, Hollywood Kane's favorite rapper, Taylor Gang era. Kane in the Japanese language means money and gang has to do with a collection of individuals coming together for a shared purpose. The initial reasoning of creating music was to get recognition, gain fame, and collect riches. Instead of being called MoneyGang the movement of supporters and members became KaneGang. Hollywood Kane's "Bombay" which came out in 2013 brought attention to the gang and became a very popular video for the group. They would still not be referred to as KaneGang at this point, but people who liked the video and song would refer to them as "The Bombay Boys". Hollywood Kane's "KTN" track would be the last solo record before the group’s debut single Long Strides featuring Hollywood, Chucka and 3azy. This record and video gained attention quickly at Bloomsburg University as their video was shot during their schools annual Blockparty. Soon after they began selling T-shirt’s with their brand’s logo which garnered attention and praise from not only Bloomsburg students but also the university's staff. Their next two singles "Lit" and "Live It Up" received rave reviews with with over 12,000 views which quickly solidified KaneGang as a force to be reckoned with. KaneGang has lead multiple sold out shows with over 100+ attendees since the beginning of 2017. Their first group project " KaneGang Season: Volume One" was released in April of 2017 and has been received very well by their supporters. KaneGang has everything needed to bring true rap music groups back to the game and the best is yet to come.

     In the winter of 2012 the rapper headed home for winter break. While on break the name and symbol for kanegang was created along with a friend from High School. Starting off as a joke no one knew how successful the movement would become. Taking pictures, and shooting videos, and partying was the plan. As time went by the gang grew and the music improved.

CHUCKA KANE

     Chucka Kane is an underground rapper rising from North Philadelphia. Chucka was born into the music industry with his father and uncle being around the music scene involved with a record label called Apex and also being around the Ruff Ryders movement. Chucka didn't take rapping serious but would always play around with his neighborhood friends making quick raps and reciting whatever rap songs were hot at the time to one another. In high school Chucka hung around people who rapped seriously and would try and get him to participate which he did every now and then, but rapping was never a priority for him until his college roommate Hollywood Kane started rapping and asking him to get on tracks.

     Chucka made video cameos in Hollywood Kanes video but it wasn't until a song called Long Strides Ft Hollywood Kane and 3azy Kane that he would make a video debut rapping. The song was a huge success and together we formed KaneGang with multiple artist (Chucka Kane, 3azy Kane, and Leo Kane) compared to the past where Hollywood Kane was the artist and we were the entourage.

     Chucka can be described as a metaphoric rapper because that's what drew him into liking his favorite music artist Lil Wayne. The witty punchlines is something that Chucka strides to make and watching battle rap videos help Chucka measure where his punchlines rank and also how to improve on his delivery.
