Queen Philly, Kansas City’s Rising Hip-Hop Star

“Success is not about being famous. Success is about finally being heard.”

It’s November 16, 2021, in Miami, Florida. Wearing a mini-dress that shows her feminine curves, plus knee-high fire engine red high-heeled boots, Queen Philly struts onto the stage, immediately sending out love to her female fans and inviting all her ladies to stand up. She hollers out to her girls, calling them by the affectionate term “sis”, and proceeds to light up the stage.

She’s sleek, she’s fierce, she’s completely put together. She’s a natural performer. She looks like she’s been doing this all her life. But she has fought long and hard to get to this place, a place of hard-won healing and success.

With an ever-changing fashion profile and a sick, fresh sound, Queen Philly is the next big thing for fans of artists such as Megan Thee Stallion, Da Baby, and Nipsey Hussle. Her songs range from catchy and radio-ready – think Lizzo and Doja Cat – to hard, fast, and destined to be club greats.

Finding Her Voice

Queen Philly, real name Khadijah Comeger, is the very definition of strong, modern, independent woman. She owns multiple businesses, including a tax company, a hair salon, and a popular Kansas City nightclub called TheRoyal Playhouse. She also works as a club promoter and has worked with artists such as rappers Boosie Badazz, Philthy Rich, Big Boogie, 2Time, and T-Rell.

But she wasn’t always the successful, confidant women she is now. She started life in a roach-infested one-bedroom apartment with a mother who was never there for her. She dropped out of school as a teenager, and wound up pregnant with an older man’s child.

And the pain kept going. On April 7th, 2019, her wedding night, the atmosphere of love and celebration turned to tragedy when her son James died in a horrific house fire in Chester, Pennsylvania. The little boy was only seven years old. After the tragedy, Khadijah was so overcome with grief that she turned away news reporters trying to interview her.

James loved music. In her sorrow, Khadijah found comfort in music and it helped her to remember her son. Although at times she felt she’d hit rock bottom, she began to sing, and creating her own music paved the path of healing. Once she discovered her own voice, in more ways than one, she began to soar.

“My Music is Reality”

Queen Philly offers an incredibly versatile growing body of work. She has spent years as a club promoter, and has learned the tricks of the trade from the big names she’s worked with. She puts her family first; but she is passionate about her career. She won’t stop until she’s achieved her dreams, and she is well on her way. She utilizes social media to spread the word and share her art with the world.

Because her message is potent. It’s for everyone who has suffered, struggled, cried, hurt, and lost. “My music is pain,” she says. “My music is reality,” she says, “You’re gonna get a little bit of everything.”

In the end, all she really wanted was to tell her story – a story of love, loss, and overcoming life’s challenges. “You have to lose before you win, whether it’s family, whether it’s friends, or even money,” says Queen. “God will throw you into a storm knowing you’re gonna come out mighty and ready for your blessing.”

Queen Philly is the real deal. Her music is fierce, passionate, and speaks of real-life trauma and drama.
