When you can rap circles around your competition but croon your way to a woman’s heart it can be very hard for the industry to categorize you. But with both talents in his arsenal K-Riz is part of hip-hop’s new generation of melodic based MCs who lyrics can still spark barbershop conversations.
Although born in Toronto, Ontario K-Riz has lived in Edmonton, Alberta for a number of years. Shaped by the polarizing lifestyles found between Canada’s East and West, K-Riz has truly come into a sound of his own that is drenched in these varied experiences.
On August 4, 2016 K-Riz released his official debut, Fresh Air – a project he thinks will help to revitalize the rap game. Inspired to usher in a new sound, Fresh Air is a 14-song hip-hop album that is progressive and futuristic with elements of 90s R&B.
