Watching Kev Hannibal on stage, in the moment where all an artist needs is one mic, you can really see, hear and feel the passion in his music. It’s a performance that grips the audience and delivers the heat – not bad for a young man from the hard knock roots of South-side Jamaica Queens, a suburb in New York synonymous for its pride, passion and servitude to the hip-hop legacy.
Before creating a new life in Sydney’s Western suburbs, Hannibal’s childhood was plagued with family tragedy, providing the foundations for enough life experience to write a book on. Using rhymes and a mic as personal therapy, his tracks are empowering and educative. His lyrical skill is unsurpassed, with a talent for beguiling storytelling and in your face delivery, Kev Hannibal is real.
His recent single, Colour of Your Skin is enjoying local and international radio love, and his multifaceted talents range from songwriting, production and acting, with Hannibal featuring in films as well as musical releases, continuously pushing the barriers of his hip-hop artistry.
