"Neh'mind" by Krizz Kaliko on iTunes

7 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

A Kansas City rapper closely affiliated with Tech N9ne and signed to his Strange Music label, Krizz Kaliko has been around since the late '90s and got his start rhyming and singing on assorted projects from Tech, as well as Kutt Calhoun, Prozak, and Kottonmouth Kings. He's released four solo albums since 2008, including Vitiligo and last year's Kickin' and Screamin'. For his latest EP, New Mind, he switches things up a bit, coming with a bizarro hyperactive flow that's even more bugged-out than usual. Teaming up with Tech, Show Tha Project, Oobergeek, and 816 Boyz, he serves up seven tracks that sound like nothing else in hip-hop today; it's an undeniably original sound that you'll think is either totally awesome or head-scratchingly random. He gets his Cee-Lo on for the soulful "Gumbo," while the rocked-out "Way Out" sounds like it could be a Rage Against the Machine outtake. The reflective closer, "Proof of God," borders on gospel.

About Krizz Kaliko

Rapper Krizz Kaliko first came on the scene collaborating with his fellow Kansas City MC Tech N9ne. In 2007, he made an appearance on the Kottonmouth Kings' album Cloud Nine. A year later he released his debut solo album, Vitiligo, the title being a reference to a skin disorder that Kaliko suffers from that causes skin to lose pigment in certain areas. In 2009 he returned with the ambitious Genius, a dramatic, dark album featuring a guest shot from E-40. His 2010 release, Shock Treatment, was a much lighter album, filled with club tracks and strip club anthems. Kickin' & Screamin', from 2012, combined the two styles, offering the sweet along with the sour, and T-Pain and Twista as the rapper's guests. Son of Sam followed in 2013, its title referencing Krizz's real name, Sam Watson. In 2016, he returned with "Stop the World," a hope-filled single that focused on depression and the MC's own battle with mental illness. ~ David Jeffries
