Biography

NORIKIYO (born 12 December 1979) is a Japanese artist originating from Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan. He is the leader of the hip-hop group SD JUNKSTA, which was established with BRON-K and TKC back in 2001.

Though very active in SD JUNKSTA, his solo career breakthrough was with his collaborations with SEEDA and DJ ISSO in 花と雨 (Hana to Ame, translated as "Flowers and Rain"). His first solo album, EXIT, was released in 2007 and was well-received by critics.

In 2011, arguably his magnum opus, メランコリック現代 (Melancholic Gendai, translated as "Modern Melancholic") was released; it was selected by ZAKAI as one of the 500 best hip-hop albums released in Japan at that time. From 2013-2014 he released a series of albums and singles that range in musical style, from the familiar connection with BACHLOGIC (or H. TEFLON) to newer, more experimental hip-hop tracks. In 2017, his seventh album BOUQUET is released; followed in 2018 by his eighth studio album 馬鹿と鋏と (Baka to Hasami to, translated as "Stupid and Scissors and…"). These were followed by an EP O.S.D. ~Old School Discipline~ in January 2019 and 平成エクスプレス (Heisei Express) in March 2019.
