On October 27th, 1998 in Morristown, New Jersey, Kaleb Mitchell was born. At only five years of age, Kaleb began playing the piano by ear, and by the age of eight had already decided that he wanted to be a rapper, after watching Eminem's 8 Mile film for the first time.

Kaleb Mitchell's recording career began in 2015, with the release of a few free singles and his first mixtape, Soliloquy, on July 10th via SoundCloud. Kaleb's second mixtape, 45, was released on April 16th, 2016, again through SoundCloud. After the release of 45, Kaleb put out multiple free singles and quickly started gaining traction on the internet and in the underground hip hop scene. He has accumulated over 2 million collective streams on SoundCloud alone.

His third mixtape & first retail effort, So Help Me God, was released on June 9th, 2017. SHMG peaked at #7 on the iTunes 'Hip Hop/Rap' charts, and came in at #82 overall.

In early 2017, Kaleb started BENCHWRMRS. "When I was growing up, people took me for a joke" says Kaleb. "I wasn't invited to parties and all that, I rode the bench for most of my basketball season. I was never really picked first for anything. One day I was just thinking about what I could call the people that support me, something that could bring my fans together. Then, it hit me. BENCHWRMRS."

Kaleb's fourth mixtape and second retail effort, MITCHELL, is set to drop July 13th. Stay tuned to see what he does next.
