KILLY – “one of Toronto’s most streamed young rappers” (The Fader) – released his debut project, Surrender Your Soul, at the end of March. Produced by Wondagurl, Y2K and more, the project is inspired by synergy and evokes an array of emotions, from the breakthrough energy of No Sad No Bad to the genre-defying flow of Fireflies.
Leading up to the release, KILLY dropped the video for his street single, Very Scary, and shared the cover art and tracklist. Without the help of a label, KILLY has established a dedicated fan base with his untraditional releases and trailblazing intuition.
Since his 2017 breakout single, Killamonjaro, which is at over 14 million views, the 20-year-old is the youngest Canadian artist to achieve this level of international success, consistently generating millions of plays and performing at sold-out shows and festivals like Day N Night, all while remaining independent.
The young Toronto rapper who was raised in a Filipino and Bajan household, burst onto the rap scene with his viral hit, Kilimanjaro, early 2017. The track landed on Spotify’s “Most Necessary” playlist and reached No.15 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart.
Earning cosigns from the likes of Genius, The Fader, Hypebeast and Highsnobiety, KILLY has also been extensively featured by XXL, No Jumper, Noisey, and Pigeons and Planes. In addition to the release of Surrender Your Soul, the first half of 2018 will include a headlining, sold-out Canadian tour, festival dates, US and EU tours, and more music and visuals from KILLY.
“KILLY’s stock is soaring,” (Pigeons and Planes) and he is destined to be Canada’s next big export.
