Biography

Harlem. Her streets paved in the gold of black thought, poetry, song, and struggle. Crimdella is Harlem, but his name rings out city-wide. Founding member of Black God Pantheon, 'Crim, youngest son of revered Activist Elombe Brath is true to his roots, and to the roots of his neighborhood.  An uptown icon in the making.

Crimdella's latest album, the self-released Bury Me In Gold is a testament to the emcee's skill, and Harlem's rich African American identity. Uptown's legacy, it's juke joint past, its street wisdom, and unapologetic pro-black heritage all flourish in Crimdella. The album exudes the brash playfulness, and razor wit of the great Harlem rappers before him, with a sound that is modern, but undeniably New York.

The record's lead single, Extra has garnered over 20k video streams with minimal industry support. A magnetism, steeped in Harlem swagger, black pride, and he pours this charisma effortlessly into his music. He is the sound of Black youth across Harlem and America, energized by recent events, and the celebration of life that endures.

A staple on the live circuit, Crimdella has opened for Nas, Wale, Siimba Liives Long and has performed alongside fellow up and coming MC Jadon Woodard. No stranger to New York's indie scene, and appears regularly at NYC venues including Irving Plaza, Pianos, Cake Shop, and Brooklyn music halls like Paper Box. His shows often see the emcee cloaked in a crowd eagerly reciting his lyrics along with him, an omen of what's to come.
