“A seasoned writer with a soulful and vulnerable style, her songwriting is multi-faceted and ultra-cultural.” – ASCAP
“A witty, talented lyricist who’s not afraid to reveal personal information as well as brag about her own skills, which are certainly numerable.” – All Music
“Living proof that a female rapper can be just as badass as a male one, that ‘female’ can be dropped altogether as a qualifier so that she can just be a rapper.” – Pop Matters
“How many more intellectual rap nerds and gangster rap poseurs does she have to leave doubled over in pain before people take notice of her dopeness?” – RapReviews.com
Hologram Kizzie (aka Psalm One) is the first woman artist signed to Rhymesayers Entertainment, a powerhouse of a label known for breeding legends. She’s savvy, self-assured and with almost a decade of rapping and touring under her belt she easily captivates her audience with thoughtful, provocative lyrics and exudes confidence. She has toured North America and Europe; watching her perform is both invigorating and inspiring. Having a degree in Chemistry from the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, Psalm knows the importance of education, so between tours and music production, she partners with Intonation Music Workshop to offer Rhymeschool, a hip-hop based after school program with an emphasis on literacy and team building. Rhymeschool is offered in cities across the United States, Haiti, and France and was a featured story on PBS.[wpex click for full bio]
Psalm One reintroduced herself to the world under a pseudonym: Hologram Kizzie with a new sound in her album Hug Life. She recently performed at Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah‘s birthday party via special request, and played an impressive four showcases at SXSW 2015. She’s shared stages with Vic Mensa, Kendrick Lamar & Travi$ Scott and her resume only continues to grow. Kizzie proves that artistry, growth and longevity are possible, even in this volatile rap landscape. Her most recent musical effort is ZRO FOX, released Winter 2015. ZRO FOX is a collaborative album with ProbCause, her label partner at Bonafyde Media, an artist-run Chicago-based record label. As a member of the all-female supergroup The Rapper Chicks, Psalm One is pushing boundaries and opening the door for new talent. Evolving is what she does best. She takes wisdom and guidance from personal experience and applies it in the classroom, on stage, & in the studio. Kizzie regularly speaks at school engagements, highlighting her unique education, life experience and diversity.
She is currently prepping the release of her next project, P.O.L.Y. The title stands for Psalm One Loves You, and is short for Polyamory, the philosophy or state of being in love or romantically involved with more than one person at the same time. “I have multiple loving relationships personally,” the Chicago rapper explains, “and if you listen to the music, most of this album talks about it. I’ve never talked about it so much before. What makes this album so special to me is that I have so many loved ones working on it.” P.O.L.Y. releases later this year.[/wpex]
