Khalid represents the San Fernando Valley, and his sound is a merger of a couple of different West Coast styles. First there's the DJ Mustard influence, which has spread far beyond California and become a part of the general rap climate at this point, but more interestingly, the screeching synth-work of classic G-Funk. Look out for more from Khalid, as he surely has some more interesting material up his sleeve.
"Got 1" has placed the rapper among this week's final four Heatseekers. If you like to have your song or video featured on the site, you can submit content to us here.

Yellin' out bottoms up
I need your face down
And you ass standing up
Shake your legs now
Girl, go and back it up
I Grab your waist now
