17-Year-Old Rapper Kardi Has Skills
I know what you may be thinking right now. You see the age 17 and say “Oh not another young rapper.” Okay. That’s fair. But what if I told you that the rapper you see above has a stronghold on this thing we call Hip-Hop? What if I said that if you listen to three songs from him you’ll want more? If you’re up for the test then keep reading.
Kardi (government name: Moe Ceesay) hails from the Bronx, New York. He started rapping at the early age of seven and listening to a lot of 90s rap, including influencers like Biggie and Jay Z. He calls himself “the best under 18″ which he turns later this year. Kardi just graduated from the fancy Middlesex Academy boarding school in Massachusetts, where he wrote raps in between homework, sports practices and attending class. Guess he’s passionate about hip-hop.
Kardi’s not completely new to the game—he’s opened up for rapper Wale on one occasion and just recently finished opening up for XV and Chiddy Bang. Kardi’s latest release Kardiology, has close to 3,000 downloads and counting. But enough of the introduction, let’s get to the music.
Check out one of his well-known tracks “I Hate Prep School,” where he discusses his distaste with his prep-school experience and basically sets his own personal guideline for getting through it. (Note: I also went to prep school and I loved it.) Check it out:
“I Hate Prep School”
The next track, “One Step Ahead” also appears on his mixtape Kardiology.
“One Step Ahead”
The last track, “AIDS Patient” is just a random loosie that showcases punchlines, flow, and more.

Look out for his next mixtape entitled The Valedictorian coming out this summer. It is a concept album which will contain 12 tracks replicating a school year, with 4 for the fall, winter, and spring.
