From Eminem and Big Sean to Kid Rock and Danny Brown, the Motor City’s long been a hotbed of rappers whose innovative beats and rhymes have transformed our culture. Another multi-talented visionary emerging from that dynamic scene, K-Squeez is known throughout the Midwest as one of the genre’s best story telling lyricists, with a unique style driven by a mix of fast rhymes, clear syllable placement, soul, sharp humor, keen observations and emotional depth.
Capping years of successful regional albums and singles released by his own label, Meticulous Records, K-Squeez ups his game big time as the first artist signed to newly launched Detroit based M1 Records. He is set to release his first official single on M1 in September 2016 to college radio, followed by a major release in March 2017 with a well known featured artist and a full commercial radio campaign.
K-Squeez has a long and colorful history with one of M1’s principals, multi-instrumentalist and Grammy and Soul Train nominated artist Nate Harasim, who has featured the rapper on a multitude of songs he has produced for jazz and R&B artists, including a remix of a track by C&C Music Factory. K-Squeez did a feature on “#Work It,” a track from Harasim’s popular 2015 album #shadesofnate on the jazz label Woodward Avenue Records. He also performed his 2013 Harasim produced single “I Just Wanna” live on Fox 2 News Detroit. Harasim is producing all of K-Squeez’s fresh solo material, fusing his jazz, R&B and hip-hop sensibilities with the rapper’s clean, concise, dope rhymes. “We’ve been tracking a lot of songs,” K-Squeez says, “one for every emotion.”
