Something For The Pain

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Although he may be classified as a rap or hip-hop artist, Mark "Kaz" Kasperczk, operating under the name Redlight King, combines singing and rhythmic patter in a style not so much reminiscent of Kanye West as of Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis or even '80s pop star Corey Hart of "Sunglasses at Night" fame.
