I've been writing songs for over 15 years, over 400 songs, and have opened for Snoop Dogg, Too Short, Zion I, Chiddy Bang, Andre Nickatina, and many more. I've toured with Afroman, Spose, Mac Lethal, and Chris Webby. Ghostwriting makes up for over half of the budget for my entire music business, it keeps me afloat and funding my personal projects.
I am a songwriter and rapper. I have had success writing songs in all genres. I can also rap my own verse or hook if you are a producer looking for someone. I specialize in difficult rhyme schemes and am best at storytelling. I work extremely fast and can get you a full song written within a day or two. Special pricing and I can return your product same day.

Kenny is a beast, hands down! He knows exactly how to capture the vibe of a beat and really give you what you ask for. If it doesnt come out exactly how you like he goes back at it again to ensure you dig what he delivers! I love the skill and professionalism he's got. This is my 2nd time reaching out to Kenny for hook assistance and I have yet to be disappointed! Great man, great work ⚡
Kenny is always great to work with - professional, fast, good value - he's one of my go-to guys and is a real asset to any production team! Kdawg, you rock!
Mr.Kenny is one good artist ✨
Kenny was an awesome person to work with off the bat. All I needed to do was just tell him what I was exactly looking for in the type of beats I sent him and he delivered. If I wasn't completely satisfied with what sound or vibe he did he was happy to revise it for me to ensure I was happy with what I heard. In the end I got my hooks at the due date I wanted and the dude was busy moving homes and probably still had time to party new years!Ha! I'm looking forward to working with him in the future
Easy to work with. Knew exactly what I wanted and gave me a finished product I can’t wait for the world to hear. Will be using again!! Thanks kenny!!!

He is not only talented but also very professional. I was very glad with the result. My pleasure to work with him.
An awesome rapper who gave his musical talents to help create an amazing "song of love" for a chid named Mikey. His professionalism was the best and the song is one that Mikey will cherish for his entire life. Thanks Kenny!
Thank you Kenny, it was amazing to work with you! Your lyrics are spot on and your voice is awesome! It was a pleasure working with you. Thank you!
Kenny - what a LEGEND! He is one of the easiest singer-songwriters I have EVER worked with and he made my song a HIT from the very first go (no revisions at all)! AMAZING! I cannot WAIT to make more songs with him in the future! He is one of THE BEST! :-)
Great experience working with Kenny. Amazingly talented and did a great job with me on my song. Looking forward to more !!
With a degree in English and a heart of gold, Kenny sure knows how to use a pencil and turn a blank piece of paper into magic. The best part? No tricks involved. No B.S. It has been a little over 48 hours now since I clicked on the “completed” button and the feeling continues to be surreal. Kenny has been such a pleasure to work with. I was particularly impressed by Kenny’s ability to put together a tough project but it seemed to come perfectly naturally to him.
Kenny is awesome! Responsive and has a way with words and rhymes, would definitely use him again

Excelent service, extremely easy to work with. Literally turned my ideas into a masterpiece.

100% satisfied with my order. After 1 revision and a few tweeks it was perfect. Impressed with his lyricism and rhyme schemes thanks again!
nice and kind, but did not tell me that after the 3rd revision was extra. Too lyrical for me and not really what I was looking for like in todays soundcloud rappers, but its whatever.
Working with kenny was a bless!
His passion is amazing and every version was unique and different. But awesome.
His attitude of making his clients as satisfied as possible is rare in this business! :)

Kenny is a talented lyricist! I would def recommend him to anyone looking to either improve/strengthen existing ideas for songs. Or even starting from scratch. Kenny communicated concerns or updates throughout the entire process and his delivery on the work was prompt. Dont think twice,Hire Kenny Now!!!!

Good person! I love him!
He's incredibly talented, period! When starting collab I exchanged a few messages with him describing my vision. He perfectly understood it and made it reflect in his work. I'm extremely happy to be working with him and would love to keep working in the future as well!
Good communication, presice delivery !
You will not find lyrics smarter and more compelling than those written by Kenny! He has a world of words inside of his head just waiting to be written! He has a quick turnaround, is very responsive and a clear communicator. Top quality right here! I will definitely seek him out the next time I need lyrics!
Very Talented Songwriter!
Interview with Kenny Giacomini
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I write verses for rappers and hooks/verses for singers. My level of writing is backed with a Bachelor's degree in English and an experience of writing over 200 songs.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in a home studio in production but finish my final projects in a professional studio in either Sacramento or San Jose.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Give me your instrumentals first and an idea and I'll give you an entire song, hook, or verse. Whatever you prefer.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Experience and a speedy process.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Difficult rhyme schemes, allegories, poetry, storytelling. I keep the art of poetry in music.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rap, pop, alternative.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Witt Lowry is also one of my favorites right now, he has a similar style with storytelling and performs everything with a very impressive energy.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Practice a hundred times before recording. If you are working with an engineer, then you are likely paying for time. Don't waste your money and take more time than needed due to not enough practice.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Macklemore would be one of my favorite artists to work with. I think his storytelling ability mixed with energy and fun is such a unique style
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I consider myself a lyrical rapper. I like to make sure my songs tell stories and put as many double meanings and complex rhymes in there as possible. I graduated with a B.A. in English from Sacramento State and studied literature and poetry. I think that background gives me a unique qualification for that type of music.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started writing music when I was 14 because I wanted to make my own soundtracks to stupid little videos I made with my friends. After a few years, I really began to enjoy the music part. After high school, I found my level of focus sky rocket and began to take off in the local scene, which only made me want to keep going.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Notebook, Pencil, Headphones, Drums, and Spotify (not a chance I'm going without hearing new music every once in a while)
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Look at our work in general. Soundcloud, my website, whatever the case may be. Really listen to the lyrics and if you enjoy a great flow with a story behind it, I'm the right person for you. I've written plenty of songs that are more "club" style if you will, but my true art is in poetry and story telling.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What do you want your song about? Tell me about yourself. I do this because even if the story has very little to do with you, I need to know your story. If I know a little bit about you, I can imagine as though you are the one writing the song.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: "Hip Hop" It is insane how many people I meet think that I put on a huge chain, pop my collar, wear a hat and then rap over my own vocals the word "ass ass ass ass" a million times. There is no art in that, and that is not what I want. I tell people all the time that my music is far from hip hop. That being said, I've been hired for plenty of hip hop/dance type songs and have always satisfied.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Most people usually ask what information I need from them. An instrumental, or a song you want it to sound like, and a little bit about themselves. An idea for the song goes a long way as well.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Writing different styles and seeing happy customers. When I write music for myself, I stick to the style I like most. However, songwriting has expanded my abilities and really pushed me to learn how to write fast, slow, melodies, and all types of stories. I love it.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will not disappoint. I do revisions if you need me to. I enjoy writing your song because every song is an experience that will eventually build to a better level of songwriting for my clients and for myself. If I do a job and do not get a 5 star review, I am much more unsatisfied than you. So don't expect anything less. My rating is perfect for a reason, I'm here for you.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: EITHER. I master in lyrics, which requires a pencil. :)
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Sunnie Williams, she is a singer who I've known for a very long time and have even had on a decent amount of my personal tracks.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm expanding my brand. I released an album last year, we sold out the release show, I toured with Afroman and am about to tour with Ces Cru. Once I get my followers in the 20-50 thousand range, I will release a new album. I've already started working on this album (because it's impossible for me to not write music) But I've decided to focus on promoting this entire year before even thinking about releasing a new one. My goal is to do a 15 city tour next year to support the new album, all in cities that I've already performed at sometime this year.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: 3 Takes. 3 Takes is a song about my step-father who has literally been pronounced dead 3 times. He is alive and well today. I tell the story in the song and a video/photo company reached out to me and wanted to film the music video for it. It got almost 20,000 views within the first couple of weeks. I am not most proud because of the views, I am proud because I was able to articulate the story exactly how I wanted.
