"Backstage always all smiles but when the lights cut on it’s time for business."

Following the release of his west coast masterpiece EP 'Not Hard 2 Understand', Roc Nation signed artist Kalan.FrFr captured an exclusive behind the scenes photo diary for FLAUNT, giving us a rare look into his life on the road on tour.

An artist who's star has been rising rapidly it's easy to pinpoint exactly why his music connects so deeply with the massive fanbase hes growing. He’s writing about in-depth, real-life situations: the pain caused by intimate deceptions, the strength required to leave a toxic relationship, the Zen realization that heartbreak is often no one’s fault. Plus, and hes able to do it with that generational voice he's always been blessed with.

If you want to get a sense of how deeply respected Kalan is among his peers, just look at the shortlist of his collaborators, a list of the who’s who of modern West Coast hip-hop and R&B: Ohgeesy, Blxst, G Perico, Mozzy, Dom Kennedy, BlueBucks Clan, 1TakeJay, and Westside Boogie.

Not Hard 2 Understand, from begining to end has the charismatic storyteller combine a clever mix of punchlines, flexes and old-school macking tales that keeps West Coast music alive.

About the EP Kalan says, “Working on the project Not Hard 2 Understand was amazing. Every song on there is slapping from start to finish. All the visuals are dope features and fire. It’s going to have the music world lit. It’s time for it.”

Check out "Not Hard 2 Understand" here, while you enjoy the photos Kalan.FrFr felt best summarized his experience and stand out moments from this latest tour.

"Rocking the arena like I do"

"The theater was lit. I love doing shows in the community giving back to the city seeing all the familiar faces. "

"This day was crazy, The Forum is like the thing to do in LA especially if you from the city you know. I’m pretty sure everybody & they grandma has been to at least 1 concert there so me coming home and rocking out in front of my people was unexplainable. "

"Showing love to my lady fans"

"One of my fans made that blanket for me & a hat too she gave it to me at the meet & greet. I love my fans the most I keep everything my fans give me. I appreciate it more than you can imagine" 

"Lights, Camera, Action…"

"Me backstage with my manager and righthand man Indy. I was cracking a joke but apparently he didn’t find it funny."

"Photographer caught me on a water break. I give my all to my fans and it can be exhausting"

"Me hanging out backstage with my boy OhGeesy"

"Trying to find a few minutes to myself before the show"

"Lot’s of travelling, lot’s of designer luggage. We roll deep"
