For Krizz Kaliko, a rapper and r&b singer born and raised in Kansas City, music is more than his life’s work: it’s his lifeline. A long-time collaborator of Tech N9ne and a signee to the rapper’s Strange Music label, Krizz’ music always reflects his mood. From his playful 2008 debut Vitiligo, to his dark epic Genius (2009), Krizz’ body of work runs the gamut of the human psyche. Krizz Kaliko’s expressive lyrics and emotional honesty have won the rapper a devoted legion of fans who eagerly anticipate his every move. After releasing five studio rap albums, Krizz forsakes his rapidfire bars for smooth singing on Go, a powerful, ambitious pop/r&b effort releasing April 2016.
