Karma Rivera is a hip-hop recording artist from Portland, OR. Rivera has established herself as one of the compelling rising stars of the Portland hip-hop scene through a combination of energetic live performances and a steady stream of song releases.
Inspired by the creative brilliance of ’90s artists like Missy Elliott, Lauryn Hill, and Eve, Karma Rivera is looking to revive that era’s sense of authenticity and ingeniousness while showcasing her lyrical skills as an MC to the forefront.
She has performed at countless events in Portland including The Thesis, Mic Check and even headlining Girlfest NW 2017.
KayelaJ, a 22-year-old female lyricist, was born and raised in Northeast Portland, Oregon. At age seven KayelaJ became inspired to become a rap artist after witnessing a snippet of Lauryn Hill’s Doo-Wop (That Thing). She then honed her skills by utilizing the recording studio at Self Enhancement Incorporated, a summer school and after school program for underprivileged youth. In her earlier days she performed at talent shows and small local performances around Portland, OR. In 2013 KayelaJ decided to take a hiatus from music and instead focus on school. Now a graduate studen't at Lewis & Clark College, KayelaJ is now again pursuing her childhood dream of becoming a rap artist. She became a member of Naturally Grown Misfits (NGM) which consist of a group of Portland native creatives (e.g rappers, producers, stylist etc.). Her first contribution to the Hip Hop scene was her debut single “Kayela to the MF J," which was followed by her other two singles “Check X3” and “Heat Gentlemens Club.” All three singles will be on her album, which will be released later this year after her mixtape titled “Homage.”

Her musical influences include artist such as Lauryn Hill, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Missy Elliot, Janelle Monae and Chance the Rapper. Within her music she enjoys incorporating poetic lines, harmonizing melodies, and using high and low tones all of which livens her delivery for listeners. Her musical content sometimes consist of topics surrounding the black community and the LGBTQ community. She also enjoys making fun, empowering music and incorporating different Hip Hop styles and different genres within her music. Although she labels her self a Hip Hop artist, her music, her rapping, and her creativity has no limits and she refuses to put herself into a single box or category.
