Kelvyn Colt

„Regarded as “one of the most promising emerging rap artists from Berlin” by Hypebeast. It’s more than evident why Kelvyn Colt is recognized as one of the pioneers in the hip-hop scene of Germany’s metropolis. It is because of his deep and powerful vocal capabilities, he has gained the support of many heavyweights in the music industry. Growing up in Germany, Kelvyn Colt was always aware there was more to life than the small town he lived in. Being bilingual and growing up between two cultures, with a Nigerian father and German mother, Colt started to develop his interest in poetry and writing at a rather young age. As Colt often states it was ‘being raised by the internet’, that introduced him to the inspirational sounds of artists as KiD Cudi and Tupac. Soon after his discovery Kelvyn turned his parent’s garage into his first and very own music studio. Being the first in his family to find his way to Berlin to attend a prestigious German law school on a scholarship, he figured out he needed more from life. After only three weeks he dropped out and decided to expand his musical horizon abroad. He bought a one-way ticket to London on Lufthansa flight LH914 and enrolled at a business university in the UK. It was when Colt go to London, that his career as a rapper really started to take off. Doing a total of two sessions with famed platform COLORS, dropping his first EP named after the Lufthansa flight ‘LH914’ and his second 'MIND OF COLT PT.I'. Fast-forward to where Colt stands now, being named ‘Artist to Watch’ by YouTube in 2019 and also becoming a ‘VEVO DSCVR’ act for the same year, the tone is set for Kelvyn Colt at just the start of 2019. Now boarding another Lufthansa flight to Austin, Texas for SXSW, Colt has a promising year ahead.“
