Khaled M. – “Follow My Lead” & North Coast Interview

Khaled M. – “Follow My Lead” & North Coast Interview

September, 28, 2011 by: Tags: , , , , , , , 0 Comments

Artists come from all sorts of diverse backgrounds.  Their roots burn through them and are expressed into their music in the form of the widespread talent we see today.

None may have a more unique story than Lexington, Kentucky’s own, Khaled M.  What makes him so special is the way he ended up there.

Born in Libya, Africa, Khaled M. grew up on the run with his father where they ended up in Lexington; the National Front for the Salvation of Libya.

Learning poetry from his father led him to constantly hitting the pen and pad. Not long after school he became a songwriter, but now, Khaled M. is here to speak his words himself.

To kick off the Freedom Tour, today marked the release of his latest single, “Follow My Lead”.

His poetic background emulates from the start as he effortlessly flows at a rapid pace already expressing his beliefs and stereotypes in the game.  I was more than impressed with the confidence he exudes through the mic.  While we know he is a new face in a cluttered genre, the belief in his own destiny is apparent.

Be sure to keep all eyes and ears open on this Midwest emcee as he grows and tells his story.  From a struggled youth to expressive human being, the chapters in his novel will only increase in number.

Thank you Khaled M. for bringing another perspective that stands out amongst the mediocrity that listeners are getting too accustomed to.
