Khaiim the RapOet lectures on Creativity & Edutainment (making education fun and using entertainment to teach) at Trinity, Yale, and other New England colleges. Yet his fans tend to catch him leaping off stages, while performing around the world with everyone from Pulitzer Prize poets like Alice Walker to Grammy winning MCs like Common.
HipHop heads know him as Self Suffice, the charismatic crowd surfer whose album with J Cole's engineer Mez summited the Indie Hip-Hop Top 40. His positive use of rap music has been recognized by Obama's Champions of Change, the NY Times, NPR, and others. See his live band at a college near you, performing the new album "Self Control".
My new album "Self Control" is on the way!
There will be Physical copies, listening parties,
and live performances (available solo and with the band).
