Merlaku Ra

Producer, songwriter and rapper, Merlaku Ra hails from Greenville, South Carolina. His Nu-form, Futuristic Blues sound is dedicated to those who have been shut out by society – the Black diaspora, dreamers, and the all encompassing underdogs. With over 10 years of experience, Merlaku’s creative process is rooted in the act of resistance and mainstream gaze. In 2020, he released his debut album, Wolves. Since then, he’s fresh off being named as one of Best New Artists of the Month by Pigeons and Planes, put on the radar by Rap Caviar, and produced Sylvan LaCue’s ‘Young Sylvan’ Trilogy EP’s. Merlaku Ra is gearing up to drop two projects this year, which will surely elevate him to the next level.
