The combination of his deep, penetrating punchlines and guillotine metaphors showcases his penchant crazy word play and unique storytelling with a commanding voice that sets him apart. Hailing from the East Coast (born in Dover, DE), he was raised mostly in Southern Cali by his father and stepmother with five siblings. At fourteen, he spent two years in New Jersey (Plainfield, Elizabeth and Orange) before going back to California to graduate High School. From there, he enlisted in the United States Air Force and recently retired from the Armed Forces in November 2016 in Denver, CO. He's been all over the world and has lived in Germany, Japan, Guam and South Korea.
Life wasn't easy for young KayFlow growing up. He comes from the heart of the Golden Era of HipHop, living in poor neighborhoods overrun by Cali's gang culture and infested with drugs on every block. He overcame many trials and tribulations as a youngster which ultimately were the catalysts that bonded him to HipHop as an escape from the realities he was dealing with at that time. Little did this youngster know that HipHop would take him places he never dreamed of. "I wrote my first rhyme at the age eleven and I never stopped" recounts KayFlow, "I used to fill notebooks up full of rhymes without even memorizing them. Something would come over me and I would just write whatever came to mind."
