An artist’s connection to where they are from can drive and inspire their careers. Rappers like Drake, Meek Mill, and Jack Harlow have long boasted the struggles and fame that come from their respective homes. Ontario, Canada, has seen the rise of rap and R&B artist Zeelix. Originally born in the city of Brampton, he currently lives in Welland and claims a strong connection to his Jamaican heritage. Zeelix moved houses constantly as a child, changing schools and re-adapting with his many siblings. However, recently he has found consistency in the same location and has strictly been able to focus on his music.

In an interview, Zeelix discussed the inspiration that comes from seeing artists grow out of their cities. “I would say I am inspired by Drake because his music reflects all aspects of life. Obviously, he is a huge world-known artist, but he is from Toronto Canada which is basically right where I am from. I find a lot of hope knowing someone made it out of the city and blew up as much as he did, and still continuously drops hits after being in the industry for so long.” Zeelix has begun to see some of this success as well, gaining thousands of streams as he releases music. He also hopes to one day work with fellow artist Toosii saying, “His music speaks volumes, and I feel like we would create an amazing track because we have a similar vibe.”

Zeelix values the connection to those he is reaching with his music. He relates, “I want to reach an audience who can connect with my music and relate to the stories and lyrics I write. I am pretty diverse with each song, so of course, I want people to vibe and enjoy the music with the beats, but also relate on an emotional level to the lyricism.” The understanding of where he came from, the vision of where he is going, and the bond to those with him on the journey are sure to keep Zeelix on the rise.

DKIRK KV is a name that doesn’t need an introduction among hip-hop music lovers anymore. The rapper has made a mark in the music industry in a very short time thanks to his phenomenal music-producing skills. 

DKIRK KV’s exceptional musical talent comes from his childhood. The US rapper’s father was a DJ who played all around the world. Hence, the music star had early access to music and its different sounds. The artist says, “My ears were engulfed by the sounds of Nelly, LL Cool, Michael Jackson, and Seal Paul.” 

The half Jamaican and half American singer hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He says that music officially came into his life in 2013. Kirk shares that he developed a love for the flows and rhythms of music, and set out to make his own mark in the music world. He is aware that his music has a great following already amongst youngsters and new rappers who see him as a solid role model. Even his contemporaries look at him with respect and admiration.

The rapping star describes his genre as rap and his style of music as dance hall. DKIRK KV himself has a list of people he wants to collaborate with. He says that those on the top of his list are Chris Brown, Tyga, Kid Ink, Big Sean and Tory Lanez. Even though each one of these artists have different vibes and music styles, D Kirk KV wants to get their guidance and be able to experience their process of creating music from up close. In a sense, all these artists are the rapper’s ideal musicians!

However, Kirk’s biggest inspiration is the Notorious B.I.G. The hip-hop star says that he can relate to BIGGIE in a lot of ways; he loves how much BIGGIE’s music is about culture and never giving up in life. He says that he’s learnt that one must constantly keep pushing themselves if they want to grow as an artist and make their name in the music industry.

One thing that he loves about music is that it is so personal and individualistic. One can pour their personality into their music and bring forward different perspectives through their sound. Nobody is restricted to only one sound, which makes the process of producing music and songs much more enjoyable. 

Sharing his goals for 2023, the rapper says that he wants to accomplish all his dreams and become a top choice musician. He says that it would be a dream cum true if he were on the BET Cypher list, which is a great recognition for a hip-hop artist! When asked what would he be doing if he were not a musician today, DKIRK KV says that he probably would have been a professional fitness trainer if he were not giving his all to music.  

At the moment, Kirk is working hard at building his influence on social media by making reels, having photoshoots, and engaging with his followers. However, it’s not only music that keeps this musician busy. Outside of music, DKIRK KV has a clothing line called D&J clothing. He is currently working on expanding the clothing line with his business partner. He plans to expand his clothing line to multiple locations. 

D Kirk sees himself having released multiple albums, gone on various music tours; and having dropped collaborations with his favourite artists in the next five to ten years. He believes in “being a smart business man with constant success”. When asked how he would adjust to being away from home while touring for an extended period, the musician says that while it might be difficult initially since he loves following a routine, he thinks he would adjust quickly too. He says that he has waited for this success for a long time and worked really hard at it, so he is looking forward to enjoying it.

Talking about his brand new song named Tempted Ft xBvalentine, Kirk says, “This song has a very different type of sound that puts you in the mood to dance all night”. The hip-hop and R&B singer is available on all social media channels as D Kirk (KV).
