Louisville Kentucky is often known for the place that birthed legends. Especially in sports.. We’re talking about the late Muhammad Ali, The Kentucky Wildcats, Darrell Griffith and many others.

Imperial Rell’s two new singles “Make Ah Way” and “Your Turn” shows his wide range as a artist. “Make ah Way” was released in a way to give people whom are giving the common man and woman in the struggle a voice and some hope. “Your Turn” featuring the talented 3D Natee shows Rell experimenting with a different style which can pretty much fit in today’s climate without it sounding cliché.
