RKM & Ken-Y Bio

José Nieves (R.K.M) and Kenny Vazquez (Ken-Y), both of Gurabo, Puerto Rico, are a reggaeton duo.

The duo started their career of music in high school. R.K.M (formerly known as "Rakim") was inspired by the recent explosion of reggaeton music in the 90's. He encouraged Ken-Y to join him to form a duo. They later would perform at sweet 16 birthday parties and public events.

Soon the duo went on to record their music. Nicky Jam gave the duo a chance to make an appearance on his album, Vida Escante. R.K.M & Ken-Y were featured on "Pasado" and "Me Estoy Muriendo". The two singles were instant hits all across Latin America. They also won The Draft, a contest for upcoming Latin artist they won the best Latin and raggae award in 2007.

This success caught the eyes of Omar and Ralphy Pina, two reggaeton moguls. They were quickly signed to the label and a year later released "Masterpiece". The album was nominated for Premio Lo Nuestro of 2007. Their first hit single was "Down", reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart in 2006. The album also spawned 4 other singles, music videos, and many awards. Although their album went platinum, it sold about 600,000 copies.
