Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1. The Rapper: Cage Kennylz (born Christian Palko), commonly known as Cage, is an underground rapper based in New York City, United States.

Cage’s life has gone from watching his father shoot heroin, to addiction and violence and mental institutions to cutting an album for Columbia Records and being a rising star in the heyday of the NYC independent rap scene, to the final culmination and personal triumph that his most current release Hell’s Winter has become. It’s a brand new record from someone who has been through more extreme circumstances than most people could ever imagine, and has come out triumphant and a better person because of it, and whose artistic vision now reflects this.

18 years old, fresh out of the lodge, Cage decided to pursue his the talent he honed while in hell and try to become a professional rapper. He made a demo, got a manager and was introduced to Pete Nice of 3rd Bass fame. Pete featured Cage on his solo effort “Dust to Dust” on the song “Rich Bring ‘Em Back” in 1993. This was his first appearance on a rap record.

Through Pete Nice Cage met fledgling radio personality Bobbito Garcia who had just started his soon to be legendary late night mix show with DJ Stretch Armstrong. He was invited up to the show several time, earning a rep in the emerging underground NY scene as a savage and raw new MC with an original style based on his tortured life and demented imagery

    I seriously love everything Cage has done from the Smut Peddlers to Movies For The Blind To Leak Bros. to Night Hawks to Kill The Architect. He has to be the most consistent artist ever for me.

    [anyone who likes KTA never listened to cage when he was actually rapping] .. Well, that's bullshit. New album gets better with each listen. Miles ahead of Depart from me. Mighty Mi's beats are a perfect match for Cage on this, and with the exeption of a couple of choruses (and the bonus track), I like pretty much everything on this. Personally I don't think it's anywhere close to the greatness of MFTB & HW, but still..
