KARI FAUX is an American rapper/singer based out of Little Rock, Arkansas. In 2014, Faux released her debut mixtape, Laugh Now, Die Later, which had been received well from critics, landing a spot on Pitchfork’s “Most Overlooked Mixtapes of 2014. The EP would most notably gain the attention of rapper Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino. Glover remixed Faux’s “No Small Talk,” and featured it on his own mixtape, “STN MTN.” Currently, Kari Faux is located in Houston, Texas; having moved from Little Rock, in order to further develop her career and produce more music. In 2023, Kari made a full-circle return on her third album, REAL B*TCHES DON’T DIE!, a 12-track ode to her Southern roots. The LP weaves Kari’s crisp production with her laid-back and bossy flow, gliding through her Dirty South roots with ease, and nodding to Outkast and UGK as influences while the femcee asserts her power. At the heart of her latest effort, the rapper and singer-songwriter keeps the regional vibe authentic with her unabashedly dominant energy.
