Born Khaalida Sacasa on Apri1 30,1983 in the bronx to Cecelia Gaines who raised me. I earned the name Kali from neighborhood friends and uses it as my alias behind my music. I've been writing music for about 5yrs now and feel it's time for the world to hear. I've done a couple of local shows through out nyc with other underground artists. I've made two albums and is currently working on my solo album called Collectin My Thoughts. It touches on many issues in my life I had to over come and issues that affect our lives every day on earth. With me its not about money or shining I do this because I love doing it. I have a talent for creativity and uses determination and persistence at my goal. I have alot of more learning to do and I'm willing to learn. That's why I'm kind of different from other artist. Some of my influences are Tupac because he was not only a rapper or writer but a poet and he touched issues on what was going on in the world. Another one of influences is Jay z because he mad a way for people to know what they want and make it happen . One more influence to me is Missy because she help woman get a better aspect about their carrers and were they stand in the world. I use all my advantages to keep me focused on what I want and that is just to make great music for years to come.
