NEW KOOL KRYS MUSIC!

Hello fam!

I’ve been on the journey of my life, refocusing and working towards a fulfilling path.

The exciting news: my fourth album is coming! It’s been four years since I released and toured Listen to Your Art. My goal is to create the best version of my music to inspire people around the world.

Here are the first two singles from the new Kool Krys album FEMINUM: Beauty on Parade and Miss Gemini.

Happy birthday to all the Geminis out there — you’re the life of the party.

Enjoy! xoxoxoxoxo

Kool Krys interviews Michie Mee

As a She Does the City contributor, I had the opportunity to meet Canada’s Hip Hop Queen at Manifesto 2012. Here is an excerpt from my interview with Michie with a link below to the full interview on SDTC.

Michie Mee, “Canada’s Hip Hop Queen,” Inspires the Future of Women in Music

Michie Mee (Michelle McCullock), also known as “Canada’s Hip Hop Queen,” is a multi-JUNO-nominated hip hop artist, actress, and dedicated mother. The first Canadian rap artist in history to sign with a major record label in the US (First Priority/Atlantic Records) in 1988, she continues to be an inspiration to musicians across the nation.

Music lovers know Michie for her distinct rap style, combining reggae & dancehall with hip hop. Throughout her career, Michie has demonstrated her skills as a versatile musician, performing with notable artists including Will Smith, Salt-N-Pepa and LL Cool J, and touring with Queen Latifah, Sinead O’Connor, and hip hop power group Public Enemy.

Beyond her musical talents, Michie is also co-host of Canada’s legendary rap radio show, “The Power Move Show,” on CKLN Radio in Toronto, and a personality who has appeared in various programs and films, including “La Femme Nikita” (CTV), “Soul Food”, and “In Too Deep” with Omar Epps.

Outside of her career achievements, Michie is a mother advocating the importance of education. She continually contributes to youth development and is often invited to host events due to her vibrant persona. One such recent event was the sixth annual Toronto Manifesto Festival of Community & Culture,
where She Does The City had the opportunity to chat with Michie about the future of women in hip hop.

Show Stopper - Video Shoot
Welcome to the new and improved Kool Krys site!

Since I released “Perfume” in 2010, I moved to the dynamic & artist city of Toronto to pursue my music and develop my PR career.

I recently shot my first music video funded by MuchFact and directed by Canadian-born Marc André Debruyne for the Kool Krys single “Show Stopper”.

Marc André and his amazing team – production and camera crew The NE Inc., makeup artist Sheryln Torres (who solely did everyone’s makeup that day) and stylists (with the best gear and creative ideas) The Bossy Girls: Vili & Caitlin – brought out the beauty + glam in my Show Stopper crew of ladies: Kelly, Ziem, Nataliya, Jess, Mutiat and myself!

The “Show Stopper” video will be coming out soon but in the meantime, check out behind-the-scenes shots on the Kool Krys Photo page.

MUCH LOVE!
