Six Degrees of Integration
Luck, of the preparation-meets-opportunity type, has been on Ben Kenney's side for a long time. First off, Kenney's punk-tinged rock outfit Supergrub mingled in the Philly underground scene with 3 7000 9, a group of energetic shredders headed by firecracker frontwoman and British transplant Nou-Ra. Thanks to Nou-Ra's association with Black Lily, an all-female performer showcase put together by The Roots, Kenney hooked up with that ultimate hip-hop act. He stuck around for a few years, appearing on The Roots magnum opus Phrenology.
