Since coming out the gate hot in 2017 with his certified platinum banger “Killamonjaro,” KILLY has been tipped as the next Toronto artist to blow up. The 22-year-old has leveraged this success to form his own record label Secret Sound Club, through which he's cranked out a string of hit records like Surrender Your Soul, Kill Streak, and Light Path 8. Since signing with Epic Records last year, the rapper's reportedly been cooking non-stop. He closed out 2019 with a string of fire singles—"Triple Helix," "Vendetta," and "Drought"—and has more new music on the way. Armed with a unique lens and knack for stupidly catchy melodies, KILLY is primed to slay this decade. Between his South Asian-Caribbean mixed background and propensity for blending genres across hip-hop, trap, and R&B, he represents the best of Canada’s diversity and how that multiculturalism continues to improve and innovate the entire music industry. All of which is to say, we're excited for what this kid's got up his sleeve. —Akeena Legall
