Artist Kahlil Simplis Goes All Out On New Project ‘Safehouse, Vol. 1’

Published

on

“I see how music makes people feel, I know music saves lives, saved mine at certain points in life, so I know its a way of healing and a way of true expression, which we all need because bottling up things only hurt us more in the long run. It’s good to really feel our emotions, which I feel music allows us as people to do.” – Kahlil Simplis

LA based musician Kahlil Simplis is the music industry’s latest catch. The singer-rapper and song-writer is a graceful melodic master flirting with ambient hip hop instrumentals to produce some of the tightest songs coming right now.

As a slew of artists gravitate towards the elastic, wavy under-water sonic side of hip hop R&B contemporarily, Kahlil Simplis has carved his own lane with carte-blanch a blend of catchy melodies and hard-hitting bars, driven by gruesome 808 drums and rattling hi-hats.

He’s back with a brand new project ‘Safehouse, Vol. 1’ and he proves he’s only getting better with every release. This project specifically has a few bangers on it, including standouts “Been Playing,” “Skin,” and “Making It Easy.” On top of that, he’s been receiving an overwhelmingly positive response from audiences.

His previous releases are also worth mentioning, as Kahlil Simplis has a work ethic that reflects in his music.

On songs like “Dreams” his candidness is on a high as he manifests what dedication to one’s dreams is all about branding unapologetic bars notably, “Always have something to prove with somebody’s daughter, I am not one for the altar, too focused on money to ever get altered”. On records like “Consistent” he’s raving with bravado reflecting on topics such as loyalty, staying true to self, business, and keeping external forces at bay when chasing one’s goals:”Ive never cashed a check with someone’s opinion, bitches will find out you got a little money damn now they consistent, whether you like me or not it don’t make a difference” he rhymes cynically on the hook as he subliminally gives us keys to the game.

Kahlil is definitely cut different – he 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 to REMIXD Magazine, “When I’m not doing music, I’m working on music video treatments”, the indie act from LA tells us. 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.
