Ko the Timeless, AKA Koushik Chatterjee hits fans at their core when he voices his poetry into hip-hop over beats laced with Eastern influences. Ko first discovered A Tribe Called Quest at the age of eight; he fell in love with the poetic elegance of the lyrics and beats that stayed floating in his mind all day. In elementary school following his parent’s footsteps (who both still to this day perform traditional Bengali Music) he picked up his first instrument, the piano. Ko followed playing the piano with the violin, and in middle school started plucking away at a guitar. In high school Ko started pairing his love of poetry with music, and immersed himself into hip-hop culture. In 2007 Ko met DJ AV and recorded Fly Away. He also met Panama, an already rising hip-hop star and actor from HBO's The Wire who taught him the ways of the industry. Within four months Ko finished recording his Poetics Mixtape. Born in Chicago and now residing in Baltimore, Ko brings to us the voice of the next generation; an Eastern hip-hop artist with an international influence. In the age of globalization and a world community, Ko aims to bring people together through his music and influential lyrical poetry.
