Elizabethtown resident Richie Gergely is a hip-hop, rap and soul artist.
But he prefers to emphasize the soul element to his music unlike typical hip-hop and rap subjects.
“It doesn’t have to be about drugs and guns and violence,” he said.
Still, Gergely’s music includes explicit language, and some of it, he said, is the “hardcore stuff.”
Recording under the name Kentucky Reignman, Gergely uses beats provided by producers from around the globe, including Fargo, N.D., Italy and the United Kingdom, he said.
