Cairo is an up and coming emcee who resides in the Las Vegas area. Korollos Nakhla was brought it to this world on, February 13 1987 in to a poor Egyptian family. Being a first generation Coptic American, made him strive to be great. Always being passionate about music, as far back as his elementary school years he always knew that’s what he wanted to do. At the age of 9 he joined his elementary school choir with hopes of one day becoming and R&B singer.
It wasn’t until he entered middle school that he fell in love with a different genera of music, that would soon consume his life and turn him into the artist he is today. He grew up listening to hip hop but it was until he heard Eminem for the first time that he became infatuated with the art. At 12 Cairo picked up the been and the pad and hasn’t dropped it since. Learning as he grew and harnessing in on his skills wasn’t enough for this young artist. Soon enough he would learn that this road is a difficult one to follow.
It wasn’t until the age of 19 that Cairo met up with another up and coming artist, J Krook which would later be the stepping stone that lead to “Made in Las Vegas” mix-tape. A classic mix-tape, which showed the two artist competing in a verbal lyrical assault vs for verse. Poor quality and the lack of knowledge on how to produce a great sounding mix-tape, the mix-tape was set aside and looked at as more of a learning experience.

Cairo now with a little more knowledge of how to make music set out to create his own mix-tape “The Birth of Cairo”, another disappointing quality mix-tape which was also self produced with the lack of proper knowledge for making instrumentals. Cairo viewed this once again as practice. It wasn’t till his 3rd mix-tape “This Game will be mine” that he finally felt he was ready. His goal with this tape was to be able to make some right connection which would shape him into what he is today. This tape gave was quite helpful for the rappers career. Being offered a record deal with a local hip hop label, Cairo turned it down and figured he’d start a label of his own “Pyramid Records”.
Taking a break from his music career to help out a friend as well as his parents business. Cairo started his own little business, “FilFila Hookah Cafe” to hopefully help generate more profit for his parents business as well as give his friend an opportunity to live out his dreams. Cairo soon realized his heart was into hip hop and nothing else will make him happy but achieving his dream. Through the lounge he met another Vegas emcee “Clue” which lead to his single “I Do That” featuring mix-tape Chili Chillz, Young D and Cairo, off the I am Vegas music mix-tape.
At the end of the tape Cairo was pulled aside buy the owner of Camel Hump Studios who was blown away by his Verse. Mark Hanens, asked Cairo if he had any original music that he could help him submit to A&Rs. feeling like his pass work wasn’t up to par Cairo set out to create was is now going to be, “Just Listen” 21 tracks of the rappers personal experiences. The mix-tape is going to reflect His Party Life, His Struggles and His personal experiences. “Just Listen” was influenced by a homeless guy who walked up to Cairo and told him these exact words. He told him to “Just Listen”.
Not too long after that Cairo would meet J Battle a Seattle based emcee who would later on hook him up with what he’s been needing from day one, The Wave Plug In, a $10,000 program which would help Create what he now feels is the music he should be making.
