The Up and Coming Artist to Know is French Rapper KillASon

KillASon (whose real name is Marcus Dossavi-Gourdot) has been free-styling since he was an 8-year-old kid, growing up in Poitiers, France to parents who were dancers and choreographers.

He started writing rap when he was 14, and since then he’s been on a fast-track for a career as a rapper. His newest song, “WRONG” came out in April, and is part of his latest EP “STW1.”

KillASon’s lifelong relationship with hip hop and dance culture comes across in his musical style, which is all about beats that you can get down to (which he does in his music video and on stage). And if you’re not into the music, then you can at least appreciate his personal style. No one ever goes wrong with a giant fluffy coat and green tracksuit.

Check out KillASon’s music here, and watch his music video for the song WRONG above.
