Baltimore Hip Hop's Online Destination for Self-Made Entrepreneurs
Born Khayri Gray in East Orange, New Jersey, King Kha began rapping when he was 14 years old. While growing up he lived in two worlds. His parents, Bradford and Jackqulyn Gray, tried to provide a safe-haven for him and his younger siblings. Outside of his home his bigger concern was living to see another day.
Avoiding the pitfalls and perils of urban life was difficult and at times impossible. Although his parents worked hard to keep King Kha on the right path, the gravitational pull of the street life was hard for him to resist. One day he found himself in the unenviable position of having to use extreme force to defend his own life. After he served his time he decided to dedicate his life to his music.
King Kha music idols are Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., Big L, and Eminem. He admired their wisdom and drive, but they also rapped about things King Kha can relate to. In their music, as his own music, King Kha found glimmers of hope. He found for himself that musing about the vicissitudes of urban life also made him think of better days. His music became an escape, an autobiography and a lesson for those willing to take heed.
