Video: Khary – “Wifi”
EARMILK Premieres the Rhode Island-Born, New York-Based Rapper’s Playful New Video Off Captain, Khary’s Project Releasing on April 6th
Critical Praise for Artist Name:
“Khary continues to grow both as an artist and a human being, a duality that comes across in his music and makes him an engaging underground figure.” – EARMILK
“An undiscovered gem. That’s what Rhode Island emcee Khary is.” – Ashley Outrageous
“A project that’s equal parts relatable, enjoyable, and impressive.” – Pigeons & Planes
Playfully stacking syllables and crafting clever punchlines, NYC’s Khary is a reliable purveyor of relatable rhymes. Coming through with an offbeat and infectiously fun clip befitting a humorous and winning song, Khary shares “Wifi,” his latest video. Premiered by EARMILK, “Wifi” finds Khary at his most playful, gleefully bending his flow around an upbeat 8-bit circus of an instrumental: “My initials KD/bitch I’m not Kevin Durant/My girl from the ’80s/Old enough to be my aunt.” Roaming Los Angeles backstreets in a beekeeper costume, a reference to the song’s introduction, the rising rapper plays with a dog, dances in alleys, and floats through the cosmos in a crate. “Wifi” is the latest video from Captain, Khary’s upcoming project, following the intimate clip for the Billboard–premiered “Captain,” which finds Khary wildin’ out in a warehouse, shaking his dreads and throwing money in the air.
Soaked in immersive, bass-heavy sonics courtesy of producers like Dilip, Calev, Tedd Boyd, and others, Captain is a confident and focused new project, emphasizing the necessity of self-knowledge and self-mastery for success in music or any other artistic pursuit. More self-assured and technically proficient than Khary’s previous projects, Captain, coming in Spring 2018, is packed with inventive flows and memorable punchlines, all organized into a useful and inspiring message. Featuring previously released singles like the woozy“4AM Thirst Ballad,” and the GoodMusicAllDay-premiered “Cursed,” Captain releases on April 6th.
Cutting his teeth at open-mics in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island, Khary found his voice as an artist when he started interning at various music and media companies in NYC. In 2016, Khary dropped Intern Aquarium, his debut project, which focused on his hustle and his nascent artistic being, finding viral success with “Find Me,” which recently placed on the soundtrack of NBA 2K18. Earlier this year, Khary released Tidal Graves, an EP created in collaboration with Lege Kale. With over 16 million plays on all platforms, Khary is an artist on the rise growing a considerable fanbase and performing with the likes of Tory Lanez, Kyle, Mura Masa, Talib Kweli, Royce Da 5’9”, Waka Flocka, and comedian Jermaine Fowler.
