“Philly has done it again. There’s gotta be something in the water. This guy Khemist does it with the fervor of a 20 year vet. Bars /gymnastics / concepts / content.  My first thought was, who trained this dude. The live aspect feels like he came up through the Motown system. He’s next up.” – Pharoahe Monch

“One of the more gifted wordsmiths on the scene today. Conscious, thought provoking, and musical.” – Bilal

“Khemist doesn’t spew raps. He doesn’t write rhymes. Khemist intricately hand weaves fine lyrical tapestry.” – Black Ice (Tony Award Winner, Peabody Award Winner)

“Songwriter, poet and musician, Khemist is a Philadelphia-bred, bona fide musical savant. Hailing from the city’s Logan Valley neighborhood, Khemist is a rare talent endowed with the hawkish ability to represent the streets and to transform the Dickensian conditions of his formative years into inspirational and aspirational music. His extensive catalog is punctuated by his incisive lyrical delivery and an uncanny knack for detailing a bittersweet life amidst the blighted haunts of a hardscrabble, post-industrial city.”
