"’Rapper’ is easily at the bottom of the list of viable occupations that any African immigrant parent would set out for their child to pursue, yet here I am."
Atlanta Hip-Hop artist Kelechi's career choice doesn't exactly reflect the structured foundation laid by his Nigerian upbringing. The volatility of the music industry is the opposite of the American Dream promised to so many immigrants but the fluid environment perfectly suits Kelechi's personality.
As a rapper, singer, and producer, Kelechi crafts soundscapes that are as genre bending as they are fundamental. Combining lyrical influences of J. Cole, Kanye and Country Grammar-era Nelly with his unique songwriting perspective, Kelechi speaks on what it's like to be young, black and African in 2015 in a way anyone can digest.
