In a close distance from the world famous Pro Football Hall of Fame, sits an area plagued with poverty, unemployment, and a lack of hope. Canton, Ohio is the backdrop of Klark’s story. Coming from a close-knit musical family, Klark started rapping at the early age of 7. After experiencing the loss of a number of family and friends to the Canton streets, he became determined to succeed. Klark has to not only succeed for his family, but provide hope for his city, which at many times it seems to lack.
Through his music, Klark leaves a piece of his life in detail over every track. This personal connection makes his music easily relatable. Whether it's the hardest trap record or a melodic song for the ladies, Klark is able to navigate this balancing act between various styles almost effortlessly. His diversity makes him easily reachable, which allows him to have a real connection with a large audience, giving him mass appeal. Klark is a rarity in the sense that he’s an artist who’s actually a true lyricist, while still being able to make records that are radio-friendly.
Off the heels of the “Klark University” mixtape (hosted by the legendary super-producer DJ Don Cannon), Klark has not only begun to garner the attention of industry insiders, but of fans across the US. “Klark University” showcases his diverse range from street anthems like “Coming to America” and “True King”, to introspective stories on tracks like “The Vent” and “America’s Nightmare/Loyal King.”
2013 looks to be a breakout year for Klark as he will release his latest project ,“R.E.A.L. Kings”, and begins to work with brands on various marketing campaigns. Beyond music, Klark has his sights set on larger ventures through his Loyal Kings brand.
