Alim-Karim Kamara, better known as “LiMM,” is a Philadelphia based artist. Although he was originally born in Freetown, Sierra Leone (West Africa), LiMM tracks his roots back to Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he was raised. His passion for music goes back as far as he can remember. He sang in choirs up until high school and really enjoyed performing. It wasn’t his junior year in High School that he would reconnect with an old friend that would gauge his interest in music. After releasing several freestyles to the public on SoundCloud, LiMM found a passion in music. He saw the things it could do for him and other people. He saw how one’s words can truly make an impact on the decisions and lives of others and through that he was inspired to make a difference.
He released his most popular song “2 AM,” featuring well-known local artist SuperstarB and he hasn’t looked back. At 19, he has released two extended-play projects, both compiling thousands of streams. He has performed at many shows, opening and headlining with popular artists such as the likes of Mac Miller, YBN Nahmir YBN Almighty Jay. He also put together shows of his own, where he has brought out hundreds of people to each event. Read our interview with LiMM below.
