This is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I need to be able to express myself creatively.
Wattup? My name is Kalae (All Day) and I am an emcee/singer/songwriter from Harlem New York, who at the age of 21 is the only female singer to ever win the Brooklyn Bodega Show and Prove. The grand prize was the opportunity to perform on the main stage of the 2010 Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival along side De La Soul. That was a true honor and I enjoyed every minute of it! I have been very lucky during my short career to have shared the stage with other legendary artists such as, MC Lyte, Jean Grae, Talib Kweli, Keith Murray and CL Smooth.
In March of this year I released my debut album AFROMATiKNEOHiPPiEROCK*SOLEMUZiK, produced by chart topping artist Princess Superstar. I did this without the help or backing of a record label, funded it myself, with the support and encouragement of my friends, family and fans! It received rave reviews and was soon noticed by one of the industry's most sought after and highly-acclaimed music video director, Mark Carranceja of Noisemaker Media. We set out to make 4 music videos, the first of which ("O.G.LYRiKALBOOKBAGGER" ft. Homeboy Sandman) debuted on Questlove of the Legendary Roots' music website, OkayPlayer.com and was subsequently picked up by NahRight.com, 2dopeboyz.com and many other popular blogs.
Now it is time to start work on the last 2 videos and this is where the Kickstarter family comes into play! I need to raise $5000 to fund this project. Your funding would contribute towards paying for the location, staff, costumes, props etc.
Firstly let me explain the concept behind the videos. The idea for the first video "BREAKiTDOWN" ft. Mic Wilson, is to create a 40's styled set with a very neo twist. It is vintage, classic, grunge and urban all in one. The second music video "THiSiSiTWHAT" ft. Princess Superstar, has more of an 80's dance video feel with a Matrix, Zion, water battle twist. Think bossa nova, rave party, bboyz and strobe lights. They sound great right? Well I need your help for my visions to become a reality on screen!
Please check out all the lovely incentives on the right hand side of the page, personalized video thank you’s, an hour on skype, invites to be an extra in one of the music videos and a custom pair of UttaKAOS shades made by me! And don't forget to forward to family and friends to help spread the word!
