My name is Kenny Cheek and I'm a singer/song writer from Asheville, North Carolina. I was surfing the web for R&B tracks and came across Al's site. His beats were perfect for creating my demo. I recieve beats from people all the time who claim to make R&B beats - but in actuality they're simply slowing rap beats down...not R&B...there's a difference! I ran across the beat "It Stays Here" and created a song called "Playin Me." Kenny Cheek
