Shasta Matthews (Klevah) — Rap

Champaign-born emcee Klevah is the epitome of Hip Hop. With the mic as her weapon, Klevah embodies her ninja persona, taking the listener by surprise with razor-sharp delivery and mind-defying lyrics, placing her in a class all her own. A true student of the culture, Klev speaks, creates and lives through Hip Hop. She uses her gift to speak bluntly about her less than picture-perfect background and spread knowledge on the troubles that haunt us today. Klevah exposes her complete self in her music, prompting her audience to be just as free. Vulnerability juxtaposed with a gritty, nonchalant demeanor are the two sides of this Gemini. When effortlessly weaved there is no stopping this 5-foot powerhouse.
