Kalan.FrFr’s emphasis on keeping things real has propelled his career from the beginning. He has risen to prominence in the saturated Los Angeles music scene blurring the lines between rapper and singer, thoughtfulness, and turn-up.
Mixing a smoothly melodic vocal style with a streetwise lyrical sensibility, there’s no limit to how high Compton’s Kalan.FrFr can rise. The 25-year-old artist officially announces that he and his label First Class Entertainment have signed a partnership with Roc Nation.
“Being with Roc Nation feels like we set our goals and now we’ve accomplished them,” says Kalan. “We’re just excited to take it to the next level. I just wanna prove to everyone that believes in me…I wanna prove them right.”
“Kalan gives you star power upon walking in the door. He commands a room, studio, and/or stage! Signing him was a no brainer for us!” – Shari Bryant & Omar Grant, Co-Presidents at Roc Nation.
Kalan sat down over zoom with Driune Santana to discuss his new partnership with Roc Nation, his life before finding the love for music, his debut album “Twofr 2” and more.
The upcoming album is home to “Scoring,” which earned airtime during a Los Angeles Lakers NBA playoff game in the Fall and is currently impacting at urban radio, and “Get In,” a lumbering, piano-heavy banger with an appearance from Stunna 4 Vegas. TwoFr 2 also boasts the standout track “No Love” ft. Mozzy & Cypress Moreno, for which Kalan teased a forthcoming video on his Instagram.
Already a standout in the L.A. rap scene, the upcoming TwoFr 2 proves that Kalan has the goods to follow the footsteps of Kendrick Lamar and Roddy Ricch to become Compton’s next national star.
