Album Notes
The Most Talented

The Most Talented , lawfully known as Khalid-El:Bey, began rhyming, producing and performing at the age of eleven (11). Together, with his younger brother Rain King (Erick Godley, lawfully), Most learned early what it meant to struggle and work hard for anything that he wanted to achieve.

Being from Syracuse, New York (where he was born and raised) made it very difficult for Most and his brother to find musical outlets; real entertainment was not, and in many ways, still isn't something that the Syracuse area is or was accustomed to. Nonetheless, these two entertainers, with continual zest, desire and determination, found a way to keep the fire burning.

Most's first professional performance dates back to 1989 when the duo was the opening act for Gang Starr, a concert sponsored by Syracuse University. Since then, The Most Talented (along with Rain King) has performed all over the east coast. From Bridgeport, Connecticut to Miami Beach, Florida, Most has opened up for nationally known artist such as Redman, Method Man, Erick Sermon, Keith Murray, Biz Markie, Secial Ed, D-Nice, Dougie Fresh, ODB of Wu-Tang and a host of others. Most has also performed as a special guest opener for Ja-Rule and has been a co-headlining act with artist such as Kid Capri, Mos Def, Dead Prez, Lost Boyz, The Roots, Cocoa Brovaz, Jeru the Damaga, Tank, Floetry and Angie Martinez.

On August 16, 2000, The Most Talented was a headliner on opening night at the First Annual Billboard Magazine and BET Hip Hop and R&B Conference held at the New York Hilton Hotel (Manhattan).

In March of 1999, The Most Talented was sign to Relativity Records as a member of a hip hop group that the label organized called the "Daily Newz". After recording an 18-track album, the entire Relativity staff was terminated and was replaced by Loud records. This event caused the Daily Newz to get lost in the shuffle of numerous popular acts, receiving a message in October of 1999, that their January 2000 album release date (now on Loud records) was push back to the fall of 2001.

In November of 1999, Most sign a single deal with an independent Manhattan-based label called One Source Entertainment. Here he release his first single "The Magi", which was distributed both nationally and internationally, entering the European market.

Presently, The Most Talented is still working hard towards his goals, now managing his own record label, Whatever You Want Music Group (located in Syracuse). In June of 2001, Whatever You Want released its first independent project (an EP by Most's brother Rain King). On February 7, 2002, the label released its second project independently, which was a compilation album featuring several artist who were signed to the label. Now, in 2003, Most is preparing to release his own debut album titled "ONLY SOLUTION", which is guaranteed to be a favorite. "Persistence and determination guarantees success", which is what Most always says; his name will be a name to remember in the years to come.


to write a review


i see you sill doin ya thang, same on this end get at the god one sun.

radio 1

incredibly talented
refreshing to actually hear lyrics of high intelligence.

Definitely one that I'd have to purchase.........really feeling this one.
This is the type of artist or music that the industry needs right now. I think this cat needs to be pushed hard....he's really good.


one of the illest lyricists and thinkers alive!
"Only Solution" holds true to its namesake! I found every word and verse as a "wake-up" call for the listeners. The beats were phenomenal!! I teach creative and descriptive writing to urban youth, and I feel this is something they need to hear. Hip Hop has become plagued with killers and pimps, that this is surely a breath of fresh air!

shantel from chicago

he is the one!
I loved this CD! The Most Talented has done it! Every song is like a different element of nature. I let all my girls hear it and they agree it was the BOMB!!!!!!!!!

Big Mike

This my sh**!!!!!
YO! My man is off the hook! The joint is tight man, w/ lyrical flows that get me amped! I want to see what this cd and the roots cd put together would sound like! This cd got me writing songs to the beats man! Word up!


You are too hot for TV
All the way from the Dirty South...This man is a genius. He has crazy talent and I truly believe that he will be selling a lot of records. He has his own unique sound...U GO BOY...



Sonja Hawkins

Lasting Friends Are Far And Few....
Khalid that's what I'm talking about baby.....I knew you forever and its a true saying that a mind is a terrible thing to waste and to see you put all of you into this thing called music and watch it unfold as such is breathe taking...Listen my baby continue to be who you are and keep allowing the mere words of encouragement to capture your inner being so that you continue to shine inside out....We know here in Syracuse what the Raft brings and thanks be to all the wisdom that's been bestowed before us we can recognized the difference between a drip and a drop and be able to catch on before it falls apart that is, (The Secret) willing to pass the living word on and not wanting all of the credit for ourselves....keep living, keep loving, keep smiling but most of keep your head up.....1 baby....keep doin you....Smile a sista called Sonja Hawkins

Robert Drummond

it's not often we find someone special in music
The last time music moved me like this it was D-angelo's first CD, you just cant stop listening to it. Poetic versus, creative beats and a personality all its own. THIS IS THE NEXT GENERATION of hip hop artist. I call it "MIND FLOW" listen closley to his versus and lyrics and you will see what I mean.
