Alex Jefferson Kalichelo, born July 31 1988 - better known by his stage name Black Minded Rose, is a Malawian Mc from downtown Chemussa, Blantyre Malawi.
Now Black Minded Rose is based in Copenhagen, Denmark. A father of two beautiful kids, a true hustler staying on his grind.
Going through a very rough adolescence, BMR’s father passed away at an early age, leaving behind 6 kids and a struggling mother. Life was never easy, which later came through in his music. Experiencing the street life, hustling to survive and make ends meet, BMR relocated to Cape Town. An everyday of street violence, pushing drugs was still a part of the day to make a living. The music came from real life experiences, creating the genuine Black Minded Rose sound.
From the streets where rap music always was present, BMR started seeing his identity as a rapper. These were the old days in Africa, when his brother would bring him old cassettes and they would have to manually rewind to keep repeating the songs. Listening to music by Big L, Nas, Jay Z, Rakim, 2Pac and Biggie, inspired him to write raps and freestyles. Stacking up lyrics, turned into recording of the first few singles. The first ones - Too fresh , back to back freestyle, tech 9, and many more lead to his first full creation, the EP: Struggle is Real.
