Kahlil Simplis is definitely cut different – simply put, he’s an artist that everyone should have on their radars. He dropped off his newest project ‘Safehouse, Vol. 1’ which has seen a considerable amount of attention and recognition from his peers. It is clear that Simplis is tunnel vision focused, brims with killer instinct, channels slickness to his vibe, is a record label boss, and easily has one of the most creatively compelling music video catalogs as he admits that, “When I’m not doing music, I’m working on music video treatments.”
To attain this level of virtuoso and determination is something he picked up earlier on while he was pursuing a hooping career until an unforeseen career-ending injury forced him to hang his boots. Still, this may have been a blessing in disguise; he overcame the depression bug following the injury, chinned up, got into music and poetry as a result, and this meant zeroing in on music as an outlet to release his woes and perhaps gamble on it as a tangible profession. It’s safe to say, his fans are now eating good because he has been consistently putting out fire since 2019 and we got to meet the legend ourselves.
With his highly touted project finally here, the baller turned rapper sat down with us to share more details about his life, the exciting new project titled Safehouse, Vol. 1 that dissects his seesaw tales with women, his unquestionable drive, and why we should be rocking with the Inglewood, CA artist right about now as he goes for worldwide domination.
When asked about one reason he is passionate about music and what inspires him, Kahlil Simplis responded:
“I see how it makes people feel, I know music saves lives, saved mine at certain points in life, so I know it’s a way of healing and a way of true expression, which we all need because bottling up things only hurts us more in the long run. It’s good to really feel our emotions, which I feel music allows us as people to do.”
