Afro Trap Party by Allan Kingdom (DJ Set)
w/ DJ K Reeves and Dolo
DOORS: 8:00/ SHOW: 8:00 PM
Allan Kingdom broke into the hip hop scene with his vocals on Kanye West’s 2015 hit single “All Day”. Since then, the African Minnesota-via-Canada rapper & singer continues to cement himself as a unique artist with the ability to balance a great beat with deep bars. Drawing from his roots in Africa and Tanzania, Allan Kingdom offers a different story of success and struggle in America. Songs like his freshly released single “Coming to America” pull from his experiences as an immigrant starting over.
His recent album “Peanut Butter Prince” and tracks like “GLOBE” have earned him the respect and critical acclaim of his peers, for bringing a refreshing style and unique sound to the current music landscape. His work hasn’t gone unnoticed, earning him multiple Grammy nominations and a Grammy win for his collaborative efforts with the likes of Kanye West, Bon Iver, and Flume.
Allan Kingdom’s rise offers up a new route in rap music – combining his quintessentially African vibe, whether through his personal style or melodic delivery of bars, with alt hip hop sounds.
