About Sumkid

Los Angeles, CA

It’s an amazing era of music we live in; the world at large has pronounced hip-hop a dead artform, and the MC still has yet to be lauded as a writer. Thirty years after the craft of rhyming was recognized as a recordable form of expression, few music lovers, critics and writers have put an MC next to the likes of Jim Morrison, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan or Marvin Gaye in terms of crafting perfect and timeless songs. Everyone has pegged the MC against the wall and figured him out…. There are no more tricks a rapper can pull out of his sleeve and everybody’s bored

Enter the self-proclaimed conjurer known as SumKid Majere; that’s Sum for short

The North Carolina native is all Southern charm and crafted mic skill. He’s also easily one of the great songwriters of this generation... Sum was trained in the Golden Era like many of today’s current greats, but the difference is that he’s stuck on the future with an almost manic aggression. His style is a perfect mirror of his demeanor; an infectious calm and quiet confidence that says “yo, I got this” before speaking a word. Although the world is just now beginning to pay attention, Sum has been loping over beats since the mid-90s with his charismatic blend of bluesman, dark poet, drunken party rocker. Born in Chicago and raised everywhere between North Carolina and Oakland, his technique is infused with the sensibilities of all the nation’s major regions. The Midwest clarity, the East Coast precision, the Southern charisma and the West Coast ease all mesh together and make perfect sense in Sum. He’s performed for the last ten years across the nation with the likes of The GZA, Wu-Tang Clan, Common, Cannibal Ox, Rolls Royce, Little Brother, The Dalai Lama, MF Doom, Dead Prez, Saul Williams, Aceyalone, C-Rayz Walz, and a number of others. An enormous work ethic and desire to do something that’s never been done before drive him to make music that’s experimental, colorful, fundamental and entertaining. Those with open minds, expect Sum to become one of the great creative forces of this era
