After collaborating on dozens of songs with Tech N9ne and touring the world together, Tech N9ne confidant and collaborator Krizz Kaliko is set to unleash his blockbuster debut album, TECH N9NE Presents: Krizz Kaliko Vitiligo. Boasting an innovative music style Krizz Kaliko has dubbed funkra (a mélange of funk, rap, rock, R&B and opera), TECH N9NE Presents: Krizz Kaliko Vitiligo features songs that stimulate the mind, body and soul.
The album title reflects Krizz Kaliko’s life with vitiligo, a skin disorder caused by the loss of natural pigment and characterized by smooth, white patches on various parts of the body. Krizz Kaliko documents his experiences with the disorder on “Anxiety” and the title track. “It’s my life,” Krizz Kaliko says. “When you grow up having vitiligo like me, that’s what you’re about. It consumes your whole life. You’re constantly reminded of it every time you look in the mirror, any time you’re out in public and everybody’s staring at you. It’s descriptive of who I am, and it boosted me to talk more about my life. Any time I think about that word, it was like another story about my life that I could tell on my album.”
Elsewhere on the album, Krizz Kaliko sparks the party with “Do It Like I Do It” and teams with platinum rapper E-40 on “The Bidness.” He also shows off his singing chops on an ode to his wife (“Beautiful You Are”) and a cautionary tale (“Slow Down”).
In March, Krizz Kaliko embarked upon the Fire And Ice 2008 tour with Tech N9ne and platinum recording artist Paul Wall. The outing opened March 28 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado, and concludes May 31 at the Event Center in Casper, Wyoming. Below is the remaining itinerary for the Fire And Ice 2008 Tour.
