KHALIF DA MENACE
KHALIF DA MENACE
An area comprised of Macon, and several surrounding areas to include Hawkinsville, origins to trap star and multi-platinum rap artist, Young Jeezy. But not to be mistaken, another city bringing a lot of unseen talent is Warner Robins, Georgia. It has been nicknamed the “International City” due to its existence as a small city making a large contribution when it comes to culture and economy. Home to local military installation Robins Air Force Base, the Wartown is truly making a statement when we speak of southern rap.
Emerging from its back roads and railroad tracks, is another young artist promising to do nothing less than put his city on the map. I bring to you, Khalif Da Menace. A 19 year old phenom, Khalif, promises to deliver his own sound to the streets. Unlike so many new artists delivering the same feel, the same “bubble gum” rap lyrics, Khalif is coming out hard. He’s coming out REAL.
Standing strong with the same confidence and distinction as Bun B and the late Pimp C you clearly hear it in his voice. He doesn’t care if you don’t know where he’s from. He’s not only going to tell you, but also create a visual so you know. His delivery is crisp, his words are gritty, and if you listen to tracks like “Where I Live” you’d feel the same.
You will know where he’s from without having to ask. Writing his first rap at 6 years old, he was determined to make his words heard. With hopes of one day working with a living legend such as Big Boi, or flying high with the Jets on a track with Curren$y; his biggest focus right now is to take on the south as a new king. Khalif aims to introduce the world to the forgotten cities outside of Atlanta.
At such a young age, he sure has the energy and time to do so. Not many in his age group even know about the likes of 2pac, Goodie Mob, Pastor Troy or new comer Big K.R.I.T. Very few in the industry are emanating a flow so thorough, and speaking about real life, without diamonds and chains. With his debut album dropping July 16th, entitled, “Junior: The Legend of Eightball” it will indeed be ready for the streets.
Question is, are the streets ready for Khalif Da Menace? Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
