Coming to Chicago, Illinois all the way from Russia, Russian rapper and singer-songwriter, ‘Egor Kreed’ is stopping by Concord Music Hall on Thursday, November 15th.
Knowing he wanted to be a singer since age 11, Kreed moved to Moscow when he was old enough, where he attended Gnessin Russian Academy of Music to pursue his career in the arts.
In the summer of 2011, the Russian rapper uploaded his song, ‘Lyubov V Seti’ (Love Online), to his YouTube account. Little did Kreed know, this decision would bring him a great amount of success. Gaining over 14 million views, ‘Lyubov V Seti’ went viral and Egor Kreed was on his way to the top.
In 2012, Kreed won ‘Best Hip Hop Project on ‘Star Vkontakte – Channel Five’, a Russian online social media and social networking service. Beating over one thousand other contestants, Kreed was asked to perform at the BKZ ‘October's’ in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Soon after his performance, Kreed began uploading more music to his YouTube account, including original work of his own, as well as various covers.
In April of 2012, two years after posting his first song to YouTube, Egor Kreed was signed to the Russian independent record label and production company, Black Star Incorporated. From there, he started to release more music and started playing his own concerts around Russia.
In the last six years, Kreed has released two full length albums and 20+ singles; on average, releasing three singles each year since 2014. The rapper has also collaborated with various Russian musicians. In October, he released his latest single, ‘Цвет настроения черный’ (My Mood is Coloured Black), featuring Russian singer, Philipp Kirkorov and Russian artist and founder of Black Star Inc., Timati. ‘My Mood is Coloured Black’ tells a story of the extravagant rapper lifestyle.
By just watching his music videos, we are for certain that Egor Kreed is going to put on a phenomenal show. But, what should we expect set wise? Definitely refresh your minds on the rapper’s two albums, ‘Холостяк’ (Bachelor) and ‘Что они знают?’ (What do they know?), as well as his four singles released this year.
