Who is BlaqKharma? She was born in the small, rural town of Whiteville, North Carolina in the mid 80’s. She first moved to the city of Atlanta at the age of three. Atlanta served as an authentic reminder that there was more to life than the dilapidated slave shacks that decorated acres of back home.

BlaqKharma wrote short stories and poetry as a little girl. For years, she kept the works that she wrote in her notebook to herself. A friend urged her to compete in her first high school talent show. She placed third in that contest. That one night sparked an addiction for the mic and words. Before graduation, she competed and placed in several more competitions. Shortly after commencement, she began production on her first spoken word album, “Shadowstonez and Cloudy Water”.

In 2007, she began hosting a poetry open mic once a month at Urban Grind Coffeehouse. She held down that spot in Atlanta for 3 years. After publishing a volume of poetry and establishing her Blogazine: Kharma’s World (Now known as BlaqKharma Inc.) in 2009, BlaqKharma walked away from hosting poetry in July of 2010 to further pursue her musical and journalistic endeavors.

From 2010 to now, BlaqKharma has released a mixtape (Hip-Hop) entitled: The Leak. BlaqKharma makes music, writes poetry and short stories. She designs websites, works in Public Relations, and serves as the editor for On the Rise Magazine BlaqKharma has also contributed as a guest writer for various publications. BlaqKharma is the creator and host of The BlaqHour
