Kandi Cole

Kandi Cole

 Los Angeles, California, USA
BandHip Hop

Kandi Cole is a brick solid product of the culture she chooses to represent. In blatant Hip-Hop fashion, one would describe her prowess as follows;

"...imagine Da Brat & Busta Rhymes got together at Auntie Lyte & Uncle Dilla's house for Sunday dinner and cooked up a MONSTER!"



Writer. Producer. Emcee.

Kandi Cole was raised in the days of the Golden Age of Hip Hop. Her parents knew what they were doing by feeding her food for the soul with sounds of James Brown, Parliament Funkadelic coming through one ear and Miles Davis and Charlie Parker coming through the other. Kandi Cole is the house that music built. Funk and Jazz are the foundation, Hip-Hop is the bricks, and Soul is the furniture. She is a complete package. An artist. A performer. An entertainer.

Born and raised on Los Angeles, she chooses not to recite the typical subject matter of those who’ve rocked before her. Her sound enhances the ‘good’ in music. She’s soft as fur but her lyrics can be sharp as a knife. She is quick with a rebuttal to any objection of her not being recognized as an emcee. Not just a female emcee. An emcee. She can flow with the best of them. What sets Kandi Cole apart from the others is her impeccable timing and delivery. You wouldn’t think this young woman hailing from the West Coast had so much style in her flow. She’s jazzy over a smooth guitar riff or “bringin’ the pain” over a hard hitting 808. It’s hard to believe she is not already on her 3rd album.

However, aside from just the music, her stage performance is truly amazing! She brings a fire and energy to the microphone, commanding attention and making it a point to engage with her audience. Kandi Cole entertains the crowd and demands everyone in her presence to know that she is a force to be reckoned with. As with the artists in which she was raised listening to, she actually puts on a show.

She is definitely willing and ready to receive the shine that is due her. Kandi Cole is one of the illest emcees to grace the Hip Hop scene in a long time. Lyricism is back. Kandi Cole has arrived.
