I do not get the chance to write about artists from my hometown very often, so it is always exciting to share their work with people outside of the area. Baltimore’s own, Bakari Nazeer, is a young artist with a mixtape on the way that I am eager to hear. While I wait for the aforementioned New Beginnings to be released, the video for his single “Exotic” has done a great job of keeping my interest. It has lively party sound, that is perfect to bump at a weekend function or in the car (perfect for summer).
If you enjoy the song, you can support by leaving a “Like” on Kari’s Facebook Page and looking out for New Beginnings when it drops.
I recently graduated from Goucher College in Towson, MD with a BA in Business. My dad was a DJ, so I literally grew up around music. I like a lot of different types of genres, but my favorite might be a close race between rap/hip hop and trance. Music has always been a common thread that holds people of different backgrounds together, and I love exploring it.
