KARI FAUX is an American rapper, singer and DJ from Little Rock, Arkansas. After releasing her 2014 mixtape “Laugh Now, Die Later,” Kari received early cosigns from Childish Gambino and Issa Rae. In 2015, Childish Gambino created a video called “Gahdamn” with Kari as a remix to her standout hit “No Small Talk.” Their creative bond later evolved to Kari working with Gambino in his studio where she delivered the aerie background chants for “Zombies” from Gambino’s Grammy-Nominated album “Awaken, My Love.” In the same year, Issa Rae placed Kari Faux’s “Top Down” and “No Small Talk” within the first season of HBO’s Insecure as well as Kari’s “Low Key” in the follow up season. In the midst of this success, Kari Faux released a debut album Lost En Los Angeles (2015) and her first EP Primary (2017) – both projects showcasing her unique style of rhyming, unchainable confidence and sultry vocal harmonizing.

Most recently, Kari released her latest EP Cry 4 Help (2019), became a crowd favorite at 2019’s SXSW and toured as a supporting act for Mick Jenkins’s US tour. In addition to working on music of her own, she’s lives as a multidisciplinary artist – modeling, DJ-ing, and joining as a featured artist on several of her friends’s projects such as Reese LAFLARE’s Jump Off a Building, Isaiah Rashad’s The Sun Tirade, bLAck pARty’s Mango, Matt Martians’s The Drum Chord Theory, Chloe & Halle’s The Kids Are Alright, Patrick Paige II’s Letters Of Irrelevance, Jean Deaux’s Krash and Yung Baby Tate’s GIRLS.
