Biography

KHAMA’S BIO
KHAMA IS THE BEST FEMALE LYRICIST IN THE GAME.
Khama is her stage name and her style has the “Khama” touch. Khama was born Khama Tate in St. Catherine, Jamaica W.I. She grew up in Kingston and did most of her education there. She attended Bridge Port Primary, Hope Valley Experimental, St. Cecelia Preparatory and Queens High. Khama’s family followed her mother’s dream of a higher education and migrated to Florida, because of her mother’s scholarship to acquire a masters in communications, in 1990. Khama started McNicol Middle towards the end of 8th grade. Khama graduated Hallandale High School where she played with the idea of rapping while performing in the band and attending chorus classes. She tried out for talent competitions and met with Baby Face’s producer who invited her out to his studio. Khama’s mother had a strict belief in education first and that music was just a past time and so that invite was never taken advantage of. Khama being the baby of three children always felt she had the most to prove and so she kept her head in the books and kept her grades up. Khama went on to Nova Southeastern University where she worked at the radio station on campus ( Nova Southeastern University Radio) to earn the volunteer hours required by her scholarship and get a feel for the other side of the music business. While working to support herself through college Khama fell trap to the “I can make more money if I didn’t go to school” bug. She took up odd jobs, even rose to the general manager level at fast food establishments but still writing and dreaming of music. Khama was introduced to a local party dj in 2000 and began going to the studio and taking her craft seriously.
This versatile West Indian flavors her music with a little Caribbean flavor as well as a strong New York type realness and a hard-core delivery style. She captures in the music the reality of the times, and merges this with a little of the past and raps into the future at times. The self-effacing, self-proclaimed “STARR OF THA SOUTH” has graduated into the breath of fresh air the game’s lacking. Khama writes her own lyrics and entertains the idea of writing lyrics for other artists as well. Khama started her own record company at the beginning of 2007 which has taken up a lot of momentum and gave birth to a production company. Khama will produce and write r&b, reggae and hip hop for other artists along with her company partner. She’s got her mom’s velvet voice and showed her musical interest as young as 8 by mouthing tunes of Bob Marley, keeping up with the latest dance hall trends and entering poetry and essay contests. Khama is generation X’s Queen Latifah or Mc Lyte. Her songs Starr and I Do among others have been getting air play on numerous stations ( WAVS 1170 am, WJFP.COM and W305.COM to name a few). Khama is a hip hop artist with a reggae song as a single, that should say a lot about her versatility. Khama has been on The Rap Game on 99 Jamz with Big Lip Bandit and Super Cindy. She has entered numerous talent shows including the Larry Dogg and Big Lip Bandit talent search at The Warehouse, the Mike Sherman Talent Contest and the 106 and Park Spring Bling Talent Search to name a few. Khama has a lot of shows under her belt as well. Her debut cd The Original Album Starr is truly an offspring from the first track to the last all breathe life back into “hip hop.” Khama’s love for music goes beyond the pen and paper, she is a young artist that has a true appreciation and respect for the veterans that came before her. Every line she spits is profound just listen and watch out!
