Christopher M. Keller (born November 2, 1983),[1] better known by his stage name Kristoff Krane, is an alternative hip hop artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. In addition to releasing a number of his own works, he has served as an emcee/vocalist for Abzorbr,[2] Face Candy,[3] Saturday Morning Soundtrack,[4] Puppy Dogs and Ice Cream,[5] and F to I to X.[6] He has also authored a 200-page collection of poems/essays/thought exercises called "The Other," and has taught as a creative writing and musical instructor at numerous schools in the Twin Cities area.[7]


Kristoff Krane's music is often experimental and highly introspective; his work frequently explores positivity and the common bonds human beings share with one another.[7] When he was nineteen, he spent four-and-a-half-months in jail; he emerged newly focused on pursuing his lifelong interest in music,[8] and began freestyling with popular Twin Cities musician Eyedea.[9]

In 2010, he released the solo album entitled Hunting for Father.[10] His fourth studio album, Fanfaronade, was released in 2012.[11]

He released the 44-track compilation album, I Freestyle Life (2005-2013), on his Bandcamp page in 2014.[12]
