The 25-year-old from Rhode Island drops the music video for “Wet Dream”, which encapsulates his vulnerability to sexual encounters. This record and music video perfectly compliments each other as a shirtless Khary describes the physical features he yearns for in a woman. I also get the sense he’s a bit of a hopeless romantic through referencing himself as a “dumb Romeo” needing a “naive Juliet”.

Recently, Khary also dropped a 7-track EP Tidal Graves with producer Lege Kale, one of the co-producers for Kyle’s summer single “iSpy” featuring Lil’ Yachty. The Ohio-based producer also created remixes to “The Drums” by Yeek, and “Caroline” by Amine.

According to Khary, Tidal Graves comes from the idea that society as a whole gets caught up with online trends and that “we forget the bigger picture”. For example, its record “Control Part 1” apprises our addictions to computer screens and social media that ultimately corrupts humanly communication and integration.

“For reactions and self gratification/It’s like it’s become a breeding ground for fake news, cowards, fuck boys/Whatever the fuck it is, I hate to say it but I’m addicted”

“Fuijiko” is the other side of the coin, explaining that Khary’s version of love comes from sacrifice, honesty, and a self-realization of flaws. We tend to be more caught up with ourselves that we forget there’s millions of people in the world who may feel the loneliness we do.

“Love is like falling asleep on the phone/Checking if you made it home, safely/Feeling complete when you’re gone/Cuz you know right where you belong, no maybes”

By being honest on his viewpoint on love, technology and the Internet, and the struggles that diminishes interpersonal relationships, Khary can be defined as a unique truth seeker amongst the millennials. In order for change to really effect the world, we must become conscious of our own actions, and approach them with this Khary-esque perspective.

His previous project intern aquarium. dropped on May 2016, and his track “Find Me” is featured on the NBA Live 2018 Soundtrack. Khary is set to release another full-length project later this year according to his website.
