BandHip Hop

Kalako is a prolific, versatile hype-xpert whose style is a cross between Jay-Z and T. I. with lyrics that entertain, intrigue, and keep the party going!

Biography

Born and raised in the small town of Anniston, Alabama, this ATL underground hype-xpert is not only giving the South something to be proud of, but he is giving the world of Hip-Hop something to think about. His lyrics keep it gansta, and make no mistake - Kalako is one of the "trillest" rappers in the game.

Coming from the South was already a challenge in itself, but this young Hip-Hop phenomenon overcame a great number of adversities to make certain that the name "Kalako" would someday be a name to be reckoned with. Unlike many of today's artists who are merely performers of someone else's songs, Kalako writes his own lyrics, and he flips it, twists it, and spits it like no other.

Kalako signed to Atlanta-based, PowerSource Entertainment (PSE) in early 2003. Since signing with PSE, Kalako has performed at numerous locations across the country (some with his label-mate, Jay-EL). Those venues include various clubs and other venues in the PSE home-base of Atlanta, Georgia, as well as several spots across the country such as Anniston, AL; Montgomery, AL; Birmingham, AL; Tuscaloosa, AL; Greenville, SC; Columbus, GA; Fort Valley, GA; Augusta, GA; Chattanooga, TN; Memphis, TN; Meriden, CT; Florence, SC; Myrtle Beach, SC; Charlotte, NC; Tallahassee, FL; Jacksonville, FL; and Los Angeles, CA. Kalako has opened shows or performed with Rich Boy, David Banner, Crime Mobb, Trill Ville, I-20 of DTP, Trina, Lil Flip, Trick Daddy, Goodie Mobb, Baby D, Throwback Boyz, Tango Red, Bohagun, Chopper from Body Head Entertainment (formerly with No Limit Records), Roy Jones, Jr. , Oh So Crispie, Khujo Goodie, S-Dub, Young Dro, Gucci Mane, and Brooke Valentine. Now it's time for Kalako to shine on his own. Soon, everyone will know why they call him, "The Pro"!

The Music Industry will not have to wait for Kalako's 17-track full-length CD to drop to hear his prolific verses. Kalako's debut album which is entitled (of course) The Pro, was released on Halloween, 2006. Featuring the club-banger, Monkey Roll (Cash Money Mix), co-produced by Cash Money Records own Deezle, The Pro will become the next great rap album that is destined to develop into a classic among true Hip-Hop heads and music lovers alike. K-Pro is serving up not just the same ol' beats with one line, repetitive hooks, but head-bangin' cuts that have real music laced with Kalako's incomparable and uncompromised flow. Kalako's first single with east coast flava, One For The Money, charted on 15 different record pools across the country including Orlando, New York, Chicago, Detroit, Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, NC, and Huntsville, AL. One For The Money was also voted Track of the Day in Hip Hop on September 24, 2005 on www.garageband.com. The original version of Monkey Roll was voted as the Best Beat in Rap for the week of September 25, 2005 on www.garageband.com. Monkey Roll (The ILL Mix) has already charted in New Brunswick, Canada after 4 days of airplay on CFMH 92.5 FM for the week of January 8, 2006! This summer, fans can get into the Dirty South inspired, certified head-banger, Monkey Roll (The ILL Mix). The song has already won 2nd place out of 605 competitors on American Idol Underground’s website www.idolunderground.com for the month of March, 2006, and has won Best Bass in Hip Hop, Best Keyboards in Hip Hop, and Best Beat in Hip Hop for the week of May, 2006 on www.garageband.com.
