Brooklyn, NY-based MC Soul Khan is hitting the Club Cafe stage this Saturday night. Known for his distinctive booming voice and personality, he defies traditional MC stereotypes. Soul Khan’s beginnings lie in junior high, when he started rapping and participating in underground rap battles. He started taking his rap career more seriously in 2008, moving to Brooklyn to work for the world-renowned Fat Beats and forming the underground hip hop collective Brown Bag Allstars. From 2008 to 2010, Soul Khan amassed a large fan following as he quickly become one of the best battle rappers in the battle league circuits. His YouTube videos alone have a cumulative total of over 6 million combined views. During late 2010, Soul Khan retired from battling and focused all his energy on making music. He has performed at festivals such as CMJ, Warped Tour, SXSW and Austin’s FunFunFun Fest. Once regarded for being a star of the battle circuit, he’s now acquiring fans as a result of the music he’s creating.
