About Kabaka Pyramid

Jamaican rapper, singer, and producer Kabaka Pyramid rose to popularity in the early 2010s with his socially minded fusion of hip-hop, reggae, and dancehall. Born Keron Salmon, the Kingston native adapted his moniker from the Ugandan word for "King" (Kabaka), while referencing the spiritual power of the pyramids. Already a rising star at home, his 2013 full-length, Lead the Way, reached well beyond the Caribbean, earning him a Juno Award in Canada and a widespread fan base. His popularity continued to rise with 2018's Kontraband, eventually leading to a Grammy Award for his acclaimed third album, 2022's The Kalling.
