Merlaku Ra is a multi-talented artist a producer, songwriter, & rapper. He has lived many places, but Greenville South Carolina is his home. He has been singing his whole life as he was raised apart of a church choir. In addition he's explored his love for Hip-hop , Blues, gospel & trap given his deep south roots
Self-sufficiency is important part of Merlaku’s creative process. In many ways, he feels
emancipated as an artist, because he writes, produces, and performs his own work.
This allows him to collaborate based on caliber, not need.
He expresses in his art experiences leaving home, dropping out of school, & surviving the whirlwind that is constant
change. No stopping, his his story runs on.
He makes music to uplift the shut out by society, underdogs of every identity.
