C.KhiD is a new Hip-Hop culture birthed music artist that will help redefine the genre's limitations. "A breath of fresh air," once said the founder of Down-South.com, rap music blog.
Listeners can only rate C.KhiD (pronounced C KiD) as an obviously unique individual that fits no category by rap standards. A conscious flow with major charm, C.KHiD is a catalyst to the rebirth of Hip-Hop culture and image.
Releasing his first Hip-Hop music album "Black Box Dreams" in August 2009, C KhiD is focused. Building a viral prescience on social sites such as Youtube, Myspace, and Twitter, he has since charted over 30,000 paid downloads and streams. Over 500,000 ringtone downloads via Myxer.com.
Connecting well with on-line rap fans in the US, Australia, and UK, most sales are generated from these markets. Japan is a close 3rd place market.
Popular in his hometown (Greenville, SC) as well, C.KHiD's story as not gone unheard. His Hometown Newspaper "LINK" magazine, owned by the Gannet Newspaper, did an award-winning photo journal story on the rising Youtube-found rap star in 2011. The photographer who captured C.KHiD's story, Mykal McEldowney, won 2nd place in a respected state competition.
The pen name C.KHhiD is an acronym. It stands for the phrase "Cannot Kill How I'm Dreaming" which represents all striving for goals.
A new Hip-hop artist looking to stay away from following music industry trends, C.KhiD is finding major success on the web.

Achieving over 1 Million views on two original music videos, the South Carolina Hip Hop artist is one to watch. An avid fan of legendary guitarsmen, C.KHiD tells how the guitar sound influences his music and why new song “Wont Stop” has strong usage of guitar sounds …
Here’s the interview:
GN: Why does the “Wont Stop” song have strong guitar usage?C.KHiD: The guitar is one of the few instruments that has a life of it’s own when recorded. It has life and it’s not soft. When the produce, “Flash Beats”, put it together, I knew it was my song for the summer. I knew the guitar sounds would have people feeling the right vibe.
GN: Who are some of your favorite guitar players and bands in history?
C.KHiD: Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, Guns n’ Roses, Kurt Cobain, and Limp Bizkit. The Beatles I have always followed. Throughout my life I’ve studied their music. Also Bob Marley, another very influential player in my life.
GN: Do you play the Guitar?
C.KHiD: No. Not seriously. When I was young I had a kid’s guitar. I have a scar on my foot from where I tried to slide on the carpet like Guns n’ Roses in the 90s. I know how to give a good stage show with a guitar though (laughing), that’s about it.
GN: What do you think of Lil Wayne playing guitar?
C.KHiD: Lil Wayne has A LOT more knowledge when it comes to music than people know. I think it’s great he brought kids that follow new Hip Hop songs closer to the live instrumentation.
GN: Thanks for the interview C.KHiD. Any last words?
C.KHiD: Stay true to your dreams guitarist … Cannot kill how I’m dreaming!

Hot New Hip Hop Music: The new songs I’ve heard from you are great songs. However, do you feel you can exist in the rap industry without a more street image?
C.KHiD: Of course. I’m already doing it. I got a movement coming, I’m not just an artist. I just keep banging YouTube for attention.
Hot New Hip Hop Music: Sounds like you Wont Stop. A fitting title for your new music video and song. What made you choose this as your first single from the “Black Box Dreams 5? album?
C.KHiD: I just felt like doing it. It’s one of my favorite songs and a great feel for the summer. It makes you feel like summer is going right.
Hot New Hip Hop Music: Most music videos you see on sites like WorldStarHipHop have girls with big breasts and booty galore. Why don’t you have more of that in your videos?
C.KHiD: If I dont know the Girl, I probably wont have her in my video. Simply put. I try not to fake moves. Me and my crew have relationships with or kicked it with all girls in my videos… at the time (laughing).
Hot New Hip Hop Music: It’s obvious you dont care for murder and drugs in your music. Why that?
C.KHiD: That’s just not things I think about. I’m usually thinking about how to make it big, somewhere to travel, or making more money.
I also feel I can have doors open to me worldwide other artist cant. Like Will Smith, I want to have doors open in cultures worldwide. I can’t be him but I like to model myself after the best. The people who evolved business wise and personally.
Hot New Hip Hop Music: Hear that. Last Question Bro, What else is coming up for you this summer?
C.KHiD: I want to perform more now. My last show was in Orlando, Florida last month (July). Now that I’ve completed my 6 albums I promised the fans, I want to perform more often and go worldwide.
