You know you are a true creative when your name is rooted in a dream! Kafar Myers credits the first part of his name from a night dreaming about being in an empty old Shakespearean coliseum, hearing powerful chants of ‘Kafar, Kafar, Kafar!” For his last name, he honors his grandfather, whom he shares vivid memories of playing an instrument and loving music.
Kafar Myers is the soul-deep artist this generation needs. In the HipHop culture hyperfocused on sex, drugs and money, Kafar redirects us to introspection and finding purpose within oneself. His single “True 2 Self”, embodies his entire brand of inspiring change while being unabashedly authentic to who you are. His newest EP “Hope Dies Last” releases this month, featuring his single “6 Below” with a complimentary music video.
The Jersey native centers his art on storytelling and soulful beats, rapping with substance. He uses clever wordplay and poetry to bring forth meaningful and revolutionary messages. Peep some of his insightful lyrics:
“Self grabbing water for the deepest wells mentally needs to nurture the garden of self peace.”
“It’s easier to give them guns and drugs than a way to college, social media got us thinking like we got it when really the pressure is holding people hostage; circumstances will circumcise how your life goes.”
Kafar’s sound and style are inspired by the likes of Tupac Shakur, Nipsey Hussle, two legacies that have provoked resistance to the norm and, like Kafar’s mission, combine their love for creativity and community into their brand. The young artist has already made a significant mark on the industry, with his single reaching 20,000 streams on Spotify and being played on multiple radio stations like Power 105.3 and iHeartRadio In the last two years, he’s released his EP “Self Privilege” available on all streaming platforms. He’s taken his craft to the stage, having performed at the Funk Flex tunnel reunion event in Brooklyn 2020 and at the K.O.D (King Of Diamonds).
Music isn’t the only talent that Kafar excels in. In addition to writing, he started up his own brick and mortar business, selling health products like sea moss, charcoal toothpaste and natural based lotions and soaps. He also is a self-published author with 2 poetry books selling over 300 copies each. Kafar also ensures he’s active in his community hosting events. He hopes to expand his community presence through building recreational centers and youth development properties. He/d also like to eventually delve into film directing and production .
Kafar Myers wants to leave his fans with the message of being fearless in being yourself and to have more confidence in themselves. “We are in some of the saddest times & I want to impact as many people as I can from all walks of life. I know my music can resonate with everyone.” Kafar strives to be the biggest independent artist of his generation urging his fans to be themselves “It’s a privilege to be true to who you are because not many are!”
