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.
