KO / Bio

KO MR. KNOCKOUT HIMSELF IS A VERY TALENTED, ENERGETIC, UNIQUE, HARDWORKING ARTIST. HE'S A STAR IN THE MAKING! AT THE AGE OF 13 HE LEARNED HOW TO WRITE MUSIC ON HIS OWN, JUST PLAYING AROUND, HAVING FUN & NOT TAKING IT SERIOUS AT FIRST, NEVER KNOWING THAT HE WILL BE PURSUING THIS PROFESSION IN THE FUTURE.

AT 15 HE STEPPED HIS GAME UP & STARTED FREESTYLING AT LUNCH & BATTLING ANYONE WHO WANTED TO. AFTER GETTING ALOT OF POSITIVE FEEDBACK OVER THE YEARS ON HIS MUSIC, DELIVERY & PUNCHLINES FRIENDS & FAMILY TOLD HIM THAT HE SHOULD PURSUE MUSIC & THAT HE COULD MAKE IT! SO FROM THEN ON HE DECIDED THAT HES GOING TO BE A RAPPER. AFTER KNOCKING OUT SO MUCH MUSIC IN SO LITTLE TIME A FRIEND TOLD HIM HE SHOULD GO BY KO BECAUSE OF THE WAY HE KNOCKS OUT SONGS. SO IT STUCK WITH HIM TIL THIS DAY.

HE ATTENDED & GRADUATED FROM THE HIGH SCHOOL FOR RECORDING ARTS WHERE HE LEARNED ALOT ABOUT THE MUSIC BUSINESS & PRODUCING MUSIC. NEXT HE STARTED HITTING & ROCKING CROWDS ALL AROUND THE TWIN CITIES, EITHER OPEN MICS OR AS A FEATURED ARTIST. SOON AFTER GRADUATION HE JOINED A LOCAL RAP LABEL CALLED GUARANTEED ENT. WHERE HE GOT HIS FIRST TASTE OF PERFORMING OUT OF STATE. THEY WERE ON TOUR FOR A YEAR MEETING ALOT OF HOT ARTISTS LIKE KUTT KALHOUN, STEVIE STONE, RUKA PUFF & SPAIDE RIPPER. ALL HOT UP & COMING ARTISTS OUT OF THE MIDWEST.

HE KNEW HE WAS DESTINED FOR MUSIC. HE HAS PERFORMED IN DES MOINES, IOWA / KANSAS CITY, MO / LINCOLN, NEBRASKA / SIOUX FALLS, SD / ST. LOUIS, MS & A FEW OTHER CITIES IN THE MIDWEST. MEETING & MAKING NEW FANS ALONG THE WAY. PLUS HE WAS BORN IN CHICAGO BUT HES REPRESENTING HIS NEW HOME STATE OF MN.

IN 2012 STARTED HIS OWN LABEL CALLED "ROUND 1 RECORDS" WITH HIS WIFE & DROPPED HIS FIRST ALBUM "MONEY & MUSIC". HE STEPPED HIS GAME UP THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX MAKING SONG AFTER SONG. HE MAKES MUSIC FOR THE CLUB, THE LADIES, THE HOOD & MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH LIKE HIS SONG CALLED "SHE POPPED" AN ENTERTAINING FREESTYLE TO SOUJA BOYS PRETTY BOY SWAG SONG. EVERY SHOW HES PERFORMED THAT SONG AT HE LEAVE THEM CHANTING IT & WANTING MORE...

SO 2013 MORE IS WHAT THE WORLD IS GONNA GET... KO!
SO ARE YOU READY?
