Hometown: North Myrtle Beach
Hailing from Monroe, N.C., Keena White (aka Mr. 239) has been making music in the area for the past few years.
As part of Word Iz Born records with CEO/business manager Latoeya Savannah, Mr. 239 and his Z Squad produce some of the most unique rhymes the area has to offer.
With an abstract style that harkens back to "out there" artists such as Ol' Dirty Bastard and Kool Keith, Mr. 239 confidently spits rapid-fire, non sequitir segments with ease.
In addition to making music, Mr. 239 also hosts an online radio show on BlogTalkRadio.com called Murc 79. On this show, which broadcasts at 8 p.m. each night showcasing underground hip-hop artists.
