If you’re a fan of Grind Time and King of the Dot, the name Soul Khan should be familiar to you. For two years, the Brooklyn-based emcee made a name for himself in the battle circuit, establishing himself as one of the most popular and successful battlers on the circuit. Then, in late 2010, he retired from battling and turned his full attention and energy into making music. Since then, the Brown Bag emcee has released an impressive body of work, from his free album Soul Like Khan in November of 2010 to his latest EP, Wellstone.
He’s also put in a ton of work with his group, the Brown Bag AllStars, whose work has earned respect from the likes of DJ Premier. Now, he’s promoting his latest solo offering, thePsalm EP. The Come Up Show caught up with Soul Khan ahead of his EP release to discuss the project, his thoughts on the term ‘femcee’, memories from Fat Beats, and much more. Click here for the full interview.
