Egyptian-Australian artist Kid Pharaoh is here for revolution and evolution.
Much like the work of childhood hero Kanye West, no Kid Pharaoh project sounds alike. The Western-Sydney born artist’s discography bobs and weaves through displays of emotional story-telling through sharp lyricism and soulful sampling, while still managing to incorporate face rattling 808s and even a splash of R;B.
Pharaoh’s quest for the artistic glory has seen him take matters into his own hands.
The self-production, directing and designing of every aspect of his content has been the driving force of Pharaoh’s “New Dynasty”, a Dynasty driven by vision.
Currently on Wollongong’s South Coast, his energetic yet thoughtful live shows are a display of enhanced showmanship, a quality that has led him to share the stage in the city with such national favourites as Seth Sentry, Thundamentals, Baro ; Citizen Kay.
With a vision that abandons all ideas of conformity and orthodoxy, Kid Pharaoh’s Dynasty is one that seeks to push artistic boundaries, and is a movement that will inevitably continue to grow.
“You can hear shades of Kanye Wesŧ and Donald Glover, for sure, but this voice is all his own. Kid Pharaoh’s made a song that Hip-Hop show host Hau says is his favourite of the month.”
