Khaaliq is American DJ, based in Chicago, with a deep love for music, he further feels a duty to play for the uplifting of his fans. “Jesus Speaking To the Masses In a Slang Language” is how he has been quoted, describing he style, “It’s a Soul Stirring Experience” –DJ Khaaliq
Born Kēvin Phillips, on a farm in the small Mississippi town of Holly Springs, spending his formative years being reared by hardworking Great-Grandparents, he developed a diligent work ethic. After his single mother, went north to Illinois’ 2nd city Aurora, with her two sons, he started school and spend his evenings with four older female cousins. Acting as babysitters, these teenage ladies, being music lovers, established
the foundation for
young Kēvin to
K-ottic K, would
start Khaaliq Productions,
with Gary Cooper, Xavier Lamont and Khalifah Shabazz. With all members being Disc Jockeys, the HipHop production team, would promote parties to purchase production gear and enjoy local success. As a natural progression, the group added homegrown rappers to the roster, with the intent to release records from these artists. Having Jam Master Jay as his major influence, this new lineup put K right where he dreamed of, on stage behind MCs, as a show DJ.
After the Khaaliq Productions dismantled in the early 2000s, plus a name change, Keevin Muhammad found himself spinning nightclub gigs, producing mixtapes and promoting events, all unaccompanied. Following years of contemplating, and having come up with the name for the company, he rebranded himself as DJ KHAALIQ!!
By 2007, those years as a mobile DJ, touring DJ, composing music, party promoting and sound engineering, would all contribute to the upsurge in this amazing career. Khaaliq has release over twenty compilation albums, open shows for the likes of Run DMC, Jay Z, Luke, Common and Master P, provided sounds for Fabolous, Redman, R Kelly, Dem Franchise Boys and Method Man after-parties. The cities of LA, New York, Miami, ATL, DC and Vegas have all tasted his flavor of song programing. Chicago’s WGCI, Power92, Jackson’s BDAY, Dekalb’s WNIU radio stations, along with the countries of South Africa, Singapore and Germany are all ear witnesses to these award winning music mixes.
Now, owner of Khaaliq Media, Khaaliq is co-host and producer of the Keevin&Marc Marc&Keevin Podcast, one half owner of MPAC Media, owner of CHIFLAV Events, Tu Sisi Hair Hub, Tu Sisi Lounge and Event Space, Ejaz Systems, INTees Apparel, and still a Full Time DJ, working multiple nights weekly.
