The Break Presents: Kush Kelz

Standout: “Live From The Darkside”
Also check out: “Wake Up”
And: “Moving On”
Name: Kush Kelz
Hometown: Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, but I grew up in New Jersey.
Most people dont know I: Interned at Asylum Records when I was 17 years old.
I’ve been rapping since: The 4th grade, but taking it seriously since 2009.
My style and skills have been compared to: The only comparison I’ve heard from a technical standpoint is Styles P. From a style standpoint, I pull a lot from Harlem, cause that’s where I was hanging when I was coming up. The fashion out there is different and way more advanced than a lot of places. Really though, I do my own thing and stay working with the newest brands.
My standout records and moments have been: I think the fans really pulled to “Relax in the Sun.” Most recently, I was on the Smokers Club Tour performing with Joey Bad A$$, Juicy J, etc. I also performed at the Dunk Exchange as well.
I’m gonna change the game by: Being universal. I strive to make original and timeless music. To make music that people will listen to years from now.
My goal in hip-hop is: To not be a one hit wonder. I want to have longevity in the game and change peoples’ days. I want people to sit down and listen to my music, feel confident enough in my work where if you are having a bad day you can listen to my work and it’ll put you at ease.
I’m gonna be the next: Kush Kelz.
