"Respect Me, Respect Yourself,
Imani Kairee[Pronunced kye-ree]
"Respect Me, Respect Yourself, And We'll Get Along Fine" says the teen Hip-Hop artist referring to anyone she comes in contact with.
Imani Kairee, is a native of Connecticut. She is a young and fresh upcoming artist/writer of this era. "Her style of music is very eclectic." says Bonnie Silva who is the mother of the young teen. "It's a crossover between Hip-Hop, Pop and Dance. The style is very marketable throughout America as well as the UK"! Referring to the infamous "4 On The Floor" drum grooves Imani incorporates into her music. A majority of her style is all about life seen thru this young lady's eyes in all aspects. Everything she writes is influenced by what she feels, or how something affected someone she knows when she takes on the situation as an act of kindness. Her lyrical content breaks down all racial barriers and is like poetry mixed with a little fun to lighten things up. "My Mom played a very vital role in maintaining my career". Adds the very excited young lady.
While working on her music, Imani was interviewed on the Inner City Groove featuring DJ EZ Mike (88.5 FM a local college station in Fairfield, CT) who really liked her sound. DJ EZ Mike expressed that he was so impressed that he offered Imani Kairee a chance to co-host his show. He gave her the chance to play her new tracks which turned out to be a really good outlet for her music to gain exposure. She has interviewed Jive recording artist's such as Chris Brown, (Rapper) Dirt Bag, and Rasheeda, who appears on The Beauty Shop movie soundtrack gave her advice on how to pursue a musical career. Imani took the advice and ran with it. "I will never quit! Quitting will be like me getting thrown into a desert without water. I wouldn't be able to survive". Says Imani. She is now currently working on new material that is set to be released in early 2010.
In the sum of things, she is talented, dedicated, and motivated to succeed in this business and nothing is going to stop her. Her Swahili name translates into the American word "Faith" and she wears it well!!!
