Through both his classical arrangements of popular hip-hop tunes and his original music, BLKBOK creates a space of deep human connection and understanding of American history. Lovers of Mozart and Megan Thee Stallion, of Beethoven and Biggie alike, will love the BLKBOK sound and messages.
The uniquely gifted pianist BLKBOK uses his dexterous neo-classical arrangements and melodic scores to audibly illustrate experience—his own, as well as his community’s across pivotal moments in American history. He unveiled his debut album, Black Book, in 2021.
Born and raised in Detroit’s inner city, BLKBOK (born Charles Wilson III), grew up in a music-filled house. By the time he was 8, BLKBOK was an acclaimed piano prodigy, winning statewide accolades and college-level competitions. When it came to music, most of the kids he grew up with pursued hip-hop, adopting rapper names. However, it’s no coincidence that Wilson chose the name BLKBOK, which echoes that of one of the greatest pianists and composers of all time. The tag is also an apt reflection of the elements that have contributed to the artist’s identity and symbolizes his colorful journey from pop and hip-hop culture to his present-day neo-classical debut album.
