Andrell D. Rogers (born May 1, 1973), better known as Kilo Ali, formerly Kilo, is an American rap music Artist from Atlanta, Georgia.[1] Kilo Ali recorded mainly bass music (described more closely to miami bass style music), but also hip hop tracks with a less distinctive southern flavor. His most well known singles include "Show Me Love",[2] "Baby Baby",[3] and "Love In Ya Mouth".

As Kilo Ali, he released Organized Bass in 1997 on Interscope with featured artists including George Clinton, Cee-Lo from Goodie Mob, JT Money as well as Big Boi from OutKast. In 2011, Ali was released from prison after serving six years of a 15-year sentence for arson.[4][5]
