Rakeem Tyree Miles is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, artist and record producer from Baltimore, Maryland. Miles self-proclaims his own sound of "Alternative Hip Hop".

 

He is one of the founding members of Hip-Hop collective group Organic Geniuses, which disbanded in 2017

 

Miles is also the founder of Weird n Awful Music Festival, an annual event to which he's curated headlining acts such as Left Brain, Mike G of Odd Future, A$AP Ant of A$AP Mob and recently with Waka Flocka Flame.

 

As a child, Rakeem was orphaned into foster care. His mother's struggle with substance abuse and behavioral issues caused him to move between multiple schools.

 

He found an outlet of expression through hiphop music being introduced musically to J Dilla, Madlib and MF Doom.

 

Miles credits his Uncle who was a touring gospel rapper for introducing him to the East Coast Hip-hop music scene and the lifestyle, causing him to pursue a career despite his grandmother's wishes.
