Armed with an addictive flow and an unmistakable sense of style, Toronto artist KILLY is just getting started. Shortly after releasing his newest project, Light Path 8, the rapper recently announced he has officially inked a deal with Epic Records. KILLY first stormed onto the music scene back in February 2017 with his viral hit, “Killamonjaro,” which now sits at over 28 million YouTube views.
The new stepping stone in KILLY’s career is a prime example of perfect timing, as the rapper remembers his series of label meetings he had years ago. Finally, he found the team that made him feel free of restriction.
“I had a meeting with Sylvia [Rhone], and what’s crazy is she said to me, ‘You’re back!’” KILLY recalls. “Two years prior, when I was first blowing up, I went to see all the labels. Epic was obviously one of them. But at that point in time, it just didn’t feel like the right time in general. Fast forward two years later, we met again with all the labels and I just really felt that Epic really supported what I’m doing and not try to change it and just add to it. They’d let me be the artist I want to be.”
