Recording Artist Kranium stopped by Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club recently and had a chat with Charlamagne, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee. Here he spoke on the origins of his stage name, his single “Nobody Has To Know” being a hit for a few years, his album “Rumors“, collaborating with Ty Dolla Sign and Justine Skye, meeting Amber Rose, rumors including the ongoing one of being engaged to Vanessa Bling, and more. Charlamagne tries his best to sound Jamaican every time a Dancehall/Reggae Artist passes through, and it still isn’t successful. Be sure to catch Kranium at The Breakfast Club’s 5 Year Anniversary Party and get his “Rumors” album on iTunes. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
