King Kris was born in Key West, Florida. He resided in a place called Bahama Village where he was exposed to island life – he was influenced by the Jamaican/Bahamian/Haitian culture. Because drug activity was common, he was forced to grow up very quickly at a very young age.
Kris states that both of his parents were musically inclined. At the age of 10, he was introduced to rap music finding interest in his first KRS1 album which led him to understand the depth of rap music and its political and social meaning at that time. Of all of the rappers he’s listened to, Kris points to 50Cent as the most influential rapper because of his raw style of music, followed by Tupac and Biggie because of their East coast/West coast flavor and their relatable streetwise content.
In 2019, Kris became serious about making music. He set out to record his very first video followed by a real endeavor to develop a catalogue of music, which he still has to this day. In January 2020, he felt confident enough to record his first professional video entitled, ‘Ima Beast, Ima Dog’ (https://youtu.be/-
