Penn State Artist Making Moves: KILLAKAKE

You may not have heard of Los Angeles, California rapper KILLAKAKE, but you should probably get familiar with him.

Penn State grad Kyle Herman took to rapping as a hobby in school. Producing beats, learning guitar, and practicing guitar took up most of his time. As a film major, he built a groundwork for success as a complete artist, with a background in music and film production.

Since moving to Los Angeles, Herman, now known as KILLAKAKE, has been taking on a variety of projects. He helped produce the new Mike Wallz album, The Free LifeMost recently, he recorded and produced music for the upcoming stoner-horror movie directed by Duane Journey, Hansel & Gretel Get Baked. Check out the trailer here.

He is also working on his debut solo album, I Hate Normal, which is set for release later this year. You can check out a few of his songs here.
