Khari exploded onto the Spoken word poetry scene during the summer of 2006 after performing at Mouth Off (a spoken word poetry venue held at Oakland's Air Lounge every Wednesday). He also began participating in the local poetry slam scene in 2006. Now, three years later, he's published a best selling poetry book, releasing over 20,000 spoken word mixtapes and performed at some of the top spoken word venues in the country, including Spoken Soul Sessions in New Orleans during the Essence Music Festival, Nuyorican Poets Café in New York, Soul Cypher in Oakland and Cafe Nuba in Denver. Within a three year period, he's performed at over 100 different venues and is currently in high demand to perform and feature at major spoken word events.

Khari's spoken word songs have achieved worldwide recognition. Best known for his social conscious pieces, love and erotic and poems, and songs praising the beauty of plus sized women, Khari can not be put in a box. He has a fan base that numbers in the thousands and few poets have been blessed with his success. On May 1oth, 2010, Khari will release his highly anticipated double CD "VICTORY!" Khari promises this 26 track double CD will be one of the best albums you've ever heard. Fusing Spoken Word, Neo-Soul, Jazz, Gospel and Hip Hop, Victory will break new grounds for spoken word!
