#Kandalit #TheSupremeTeam Artist Name: Kandalit Who are you? I'm a Hip Hop Emcee, Producer, and Sound Engineer who has entirely self produced all my works throughout my career. Firstly, it saves a lot of hassle and cost being able to do it yourself, and secondly, I like being able to create my entire canvas, from the beat, to the mix, to the graphics.
I'm a %100 Hip Hop Emcee, in the truest sense of the word, and enjoy being as lyrical as possible to push the boundaries. Although Traditional Hip Hop is my preference, I'm able to evolve my lyrical style on more modern hip hop or trap beats. I love technical rhymes, and enjoy the practice of keeping my pen game at a high level, placing importance on syllable play, wordplay, and flow.
Usually backed by dark beats, I feel it suits the sound of my voice better, as well as giving off a general "Night Music' feel. I would describe my style as dark underground hip hop. Able to spit conscious lyrics, rock a mic, and murda a beat, at the same time. Where are you from? I'm from The Gambia. Previously based in Manchester, UK, I started producing and recording music in 2002. At a time before social media exploded, the deal was to record a demo, usually 3 or 4 tracks, and hand it out to promoters to get gigs. Then from there, selling physical copies of the music to people who came to shows etc on the Hip Hop circuit. When facebook started to take off around 2004, and through Myspace, I was able to network more with other underground artistes.
When I came back to The Gambia in 2011, the music scene here was still young, but beginning to gather more interest from the general population. Unfortunately, the attention that Hip Hop music had here, has faded, as the majority of shareholders in the music scene lean more towards afrobeats, afro rap, and more mainstream styles of music, although there are still plenty of 'rappers'. The music scene doesn't have the frameworks in place to really generate the incomes its capable of, things like royalty payments, and as a result almost every artist searches out some kind of sponsorship.
