About Koffee Blakk
Its amazing how many different origins of an artist one can read - especially in an outlet like "Hip Hop". Where you can take a look at that artist's life, and read the gritty tales of street life and hardship. The pain that comes with living in a situation that you have no control over. And as you continue to read, and reach more into the life of the lyricist, you manage to bring yourself to a path. A path that when traveled, you can even say you feel the aforementioned pain. However, although Hip Hop was created by the streets and for the streets as an way to express the bottled pain - it doesn't mean that it has come from the streets. Enter the name; Koffee Blakk. Hailing from an area where many may call ''paradise'', his story is far different from the cliche you've come to hear from artists in the same genre, as is the way he managed to become a rapper in the first place.
So before you read on, the following (like it or not) is going to be the truth, the whole truth - and nothing but the truth. Whether or not you choose to accept it as it is, will remain to be seen.
Koffee Blakk, better known as Riston Alistar Simon was born in Tortola, British Virgin Islands to Gregson & Eurina Simon on October 18th, 1983. He was the first born child of the couple, who was followed by his two brothers and sister as the years rolled by. His father was/is a Construction worker slash Business owner slash Pastor and at the time, his mother Eurina was a Gospel singer. Being Christian parents, it was only fitting that Riston and his siblings found themselves in Church every Sunday. This is where his first taste for music first came into effect. Now notice that the term "music" was used, simply because although Koffee Blakk is a rapper/emcee - he is also a vocalist too.
