Kese, Born Marquise Hallman was raised in Charlotte, NC.
At an early age Kese had a great love for music and listened to a variety of genres. With Artists such as N.W.A., Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Nas, and T.I. to draw upon, he was inspired to write his own rhymes.
Kese first got involved in the Music Industry in the late 1990’s and has not looked back since. Kese brings a style all his own. His Raps consists of smooth lyrical contents and embedded in music filled with jazzy undertones takes his songs to a higher level. In 2010 Kese took his craft more seriously and decided to expand his career by broadening his horizon to include all aspects of the Music Industry.
In this saturated Hip Hop culture filled with mediocre Artist echoing the same sounds Kese creates a lane all his own.
