Bio

Egyptian-Australian artist Kid Pharaoh is here for evolution and revolution.

Aggressive delivery & sharp lyricism paired with skilful production and energetic live shows have been Pharaoh’s driving force from the beginning; all while unapologetically providing a raw and unique voice for an underrepresented Arabic community in Australia.

2018 saw the Western-Sydney born artist push boundaries with “Jesus Looks Like Me”, a conceptually rich and powerful single that turned heads and immediately landed Pharaoh a spot on the Yours & Owls Festival stage, Triple J Unearthed Spotlight Artist status and support slots for the likes of American rapper Duckwrth.

Triple J brought light to the “shades of Kanye West & Childish Gambino” present in the single, a comparison that more than holds up due to the self-production and self-direction Pharaoh delivers to each project, with continuous sonic and visual innovation that leads no project to be like the last, a trait drawn and inspired greatly from the work ethic of the aforementioned artists.

The producer of every song, the writer of every lyric and the director of every video; Kid Pharaoh’s creative force is one that continues to shatter ceilings and defy expectations at every turn.

The Kid not playing on this one. What an incredible piece of art that plays out with clever dynamics over a full five minute journey

They said this beat sounds like one of the unreleased instrumentals that could've been on it. Again, not trying to freak you out man but maybe give them a ...

Hey man, not trying to freak you out or anything but I just got a call from some American cops investigating the disappearance of one of Kanye West's hard drives from around the time he was making My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. They said this beat sounds like one of the unreleased instrumentals that could've been on it. Again, not trying to freak you out man but maybe give them a call when you get a chance? And sorry for not sending this as an email, I forgot my log in.

kid pharaoh again showing off just how amazing he is at crafting more than just a song. everything feels like a statement, a concept, a carefully constructed work intended to hit hard.
