In any underground market, certain goods become hot commodities and The Blow Up’s Black Market is no exception to that economic rule. Each week we’ll bring you the ‘Coveted Contraband’ from The Black Market (based on your ratings).
Check out this week’s gem
Artist Name: Malachi
Hometown: $eattle, WA
I am an ever evolving person who realizes my life & my talent are more than just me. I create for those in my life who’s circumstances are less favorable then mine. One nation. One Love.
Finish this sentence: “When people hear me, they’re probably going to think of…”
Weed, the feeling of “f*ck it”, and riding down the street in the summer down & tree in hand. And been told I sound like 08 Lil Wayne
What sparked your inspiration for a music career?
Well once upon a time I was kickin it with this bad little chocolate thang *my smooth man voice*. We were smoking and chillin at a view, a typical Seattle kick it. Then an instrumental came in and she challenged me to freestyle. I did and after she goes “wait…why don’t you actually rap? you’re dope” I was like “everyone thinks they can rap”. Long story short she asked me if was scared because my potential was definitely there. I’m not scared and I never was. I realized if I have the talent I’m meant to use it. So now I rap. Oh and 50 cent
What crew do you roll with?
What other special talents can you throw down?
I’ll hoop you but we have to play half court. I’m out of shape. Ball is not all the way life. My fried chicken is also on pooint! I can bowl hella well to. Fun fact: I was in a bowling league with my sister as a little kid.
What separates you from the rest?
I am 100% myself at all times. Regardless of what that looks like and it shows in my music. I keep my business right & my energy high. You can feel my passion on stage! If there’s one person or 100 people in the crowd you’re going to feel my energy. It’s a party!
I have a show coming up on December 30th at Studio 7. Doors open at 7pm! I also am recording a new project right now called Peace.Love.Cannabis (PLC) that I’m really excited about! I am working to release that in early February.
