Listen To Vokab Company's interview with Marty
"A sound whose genre goes something like; hip-hop, soul, electro, funk. You have two Emcee’s who charge sped-up lyrical flows; made to sound effortless…impressive and seamless synergy with their voices and their lyrics are playfully vivacious and positive." -Sam Dorman, NBC
Vokab Kompany was started by Rob Hurt in 2006. His debut album Liquid Language featured Killer Priest of Wu-Tang Clan. This album featured Burkey on two tracks - "40Thieves" and "Soul Sista", which served as the start of the collaboration between the two. Burkey's accomplishments include opening for poet Maya Angelou with his band Native Root and featuring on MTV Thailand and Bakery Music hip hop compilation T Hop with the band The Golden Triangle.
The band has most recently been releasing a number of acclaimed singles to keep the airwaves rocking. Their recent single "Turn Me Out" was released by Gravitas Records and featured Lyrics Born. Their single "Warm in the Light" from their collaborative EP with 9 theory titled "Beneath The Shallows" was featured by Forbes.
Their most recent LP, The Good Kompany Album, was released on January 20, 2016 to critical acclaim and includes guest features from Gift of Gab (rapper), Mitchy Slick, and more. The release was followed up by a headlining West Coast tour that featured special appearances by friends and fellow collaborators on the album.
