Biography

Lyrically insane, and visually captivating, Kemar "KeeLo GrAmZ" Munroe evokes an unforgettable presence on and off the stage. His artistic talent and eclectic tastes have made him one of the most unique Hip Hop artists to date.

KeeLo Gramz began rhyming in high school, battling his friends (Night Hoodz) after basket ball games, clubs and parties because they said he couldn�t do it. He then realized he had skills so he decided to take it seriously since his dream of becoming a basket ball star ended because he played on a broken ankle for one year. Keelo then joined the group Night Hoodz. They together began recording tracks in a home studio; putting out underground albums, mix-tapes and fliers. Slowly they developed a fan base.
After much frustration and failed attempts, it was suggested that KeeLo Gramz go solo by Tamara (BRAG Management). KeeLo would have a better chance at success as a solo act, to gain recognition first as a soloist and then bring the rest of the group along. In April 2004 KeeLo GrAmZ signed a solo management agreement with BRAG management. By December 2004 BRAG was able to solidify an independent label deal through Dai-Lo Recordings for KeeLo Gramz and the group Night Hoodz.
Since his signing with Dai-lo Recordings KeeLo has performed at all major venues in Toronto (Skydome (Rogers Centre), C.N.E., Molson Indy etc) and surrounding areas, as well as traveling across Canada to British Columbia to perform at Summer Jam (Opened for KOS, Montell Jordan, etc). KeeLo comments that: "The experience you take from doing live shows to being in the studio helps you understand how to touch people�s emotions".
His inspirations come from a variety of music ranging from the dirty south sounds of Project Pat, to the 70�s rock hard sty lings of AC/DC. As an artist, he refuses to confine himself to one specific genre of music: "I want to be a cross-over artist, a lot of dudes just do straight rap, and that�s boring to me".
He believes that we are all derivatives of our experiences and attributes the realism of his lyrics to the difficulties in his life.
KeeLo�s experiences have forced him to get to the level he is at today. The competitive and ever changing nature of this business has forced him to bring his best material and a creative frame of mind at every opportunity. Dai-Lo Recordings and KeeLo made a huge stepping stone in Canadian music by being the first independent record label and artist to be added to Max Trax Digital Music (Nationwide) hit #1 with the single �Here Ya Go� and remain in the top 10 for over 6 months. KeeLo�s third single �Last Call� peaked at #4 in Toronto. FLOW 935 featured the song on the Urban Flowcase CD and its hot 93 songs for 2006. The single won �Best Hip Hop Song� at the Toronto Independent Music Awards.
KeeLo Gramz is currently working on his debut album "Fortunes of the Fearless," which is slated to be released JUNE 26 2007 independently. He has only scratched the surface of a significant future in the music industry. The best is yet to come.
