KABAKA PYRAMID BIOGRAPHY

Keron “Kabaka Pyramid” Salmon is a multi-talented artist and
producer coming straight from the streets of Kingston, Jamaica with a unique
musical style blending the lyricism of Hip hop, with the energy and melody of
Reggae and Dancehall. He is based out of the Bebble Rock music camp and through
his liquid and hypnotizing delivery spreads the positive messages of
spirituality and conscious evolution that forces you to listen. The name
“Kabaka” is Ugandan for “King” and Pyramids are thought by
the artist to house the mathematical proportions of Universal Laws that are
eminent in the creation of this universe.

He is an ever-evolving artist that has numerous ways of expressing his
creativity. The ability to watch and learn from others around him has made him
into somewhat of a Jack-of-all-trades, writing lyrics, producing tracks,
engineering/recording himself or other artists, mixing songs, editing
video/photos, or even learning to play the guitar!

His passion for music began at early age when he would change the lyrics to
popular songs and record his own version on his mother’s tape recorder. What
began as a humorous venture was actually a stepping-stone for the artist we
know today. Reggae music has always been a strong influence on the Kingstonian
lyricist, but during high school it was Hip Hop music that captivated him;
reciting his favorite Canibus or Inspectah Deck lines constantly. The influence
of both genres can be easily detected as he seeks to find the perfect fusion of
the two cultural expressions.

Kabaka Pyramid made his first major break-through when he was awarded a
place on international selector; Dj Green Lantern’s “Myspace
Invasion” Mixtape in 2007. This was immediately followed by a release of
his own promotional mixtape “The Transition Vol 1” which received
much acclaim in the underground hip-hop community. Fast forward to 2009; Kabaka
Pyramid continued to garner even more notoriety with the release of the “ The
Transition Vol 2” mixtape whose internet pre-release on www.bebblerock.com saw
over 100 downloads in its first few days. His lyrical ability and deep
spiritual messages are what he is most known for presenting on this project,
raising the bar on the standard of Hip Hop in Jamaica.

Also in this time Kabaka has featured heavily on Jamaican airwaves, with
reggae songs like “Never be the same” and “Carry On” which has been
given regular rotation by ZJ Rush on Zip FM. He recently collaborated with Rush
and his Code Red Production team with a break-though appearance on their
“Enemy Lines Riddim”. He has also gone number 3 on the Bermuda music
charts with the track “Love is all I see” featuring with local artist
Ashanti in 2010.
